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:

1) The number of reports of “thefts from motor vehicles” logged in your force area over the last five years? Please supply data for 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014 and 2013. Note: if data is only available by financial year please supply this for 2017/18, 2016/17, 2015/16, 2014/15 and 2013/14.

 

2) Please tell me how many of the above reports involved the theft or attempted theft of a catalytic converter. Again, please provide a breakdown of the figures for the last five years.

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.

Due to the different methods of recording information across 43 forces, a specific response from one constabulary should not be seen as an indication of what information could be supplied (within cost) by another. Systems used for recording these figures are not generic, nor are the procedures used locally in capturing the data. For this reason responses between forces may differ, and should not be used for comparative purposes.
