Provision of information held by Northumbria Police made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the 'Act')

As you may be aware the purpose of the Act is to allow a general right of access to information held at the time of a request, by a Public Authority (including the Police), subject to certain limitations and exemptions.

You asked:

I would like to request the following information under the Freedom of Information Act for the 12-month period up to the end of October (ie from 1/11/18 to 31/10/19) or for the most recent 12-month period for which you hold the relevant information.

How many dogs were stolen in your force area in the 12 month period?

For each of these thefts can you tell me the breed of the dog, the location the dog was stolen from (or the situation ie while being walked, from owner's home etc), the value of the dog, whether the dog was ever returned to its owner and whether anyone was ever arrested and then convicted for the theft.

In Response:

Following receipt of your request, searches were conducted with the Corporate Development Department of Northumbria Police.  I can confirm that the information you have requested is held by Northumbria Police.

I am able to disclose the located information to you as follows.  To note some data has not been recorded on systems used, therefore we are unable to provide and those instances have been left blank in the below.
