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:

Please can you detail the number of crime reports mentioning "Xbox Live" and "Fortnite" over the last four calendar years (2016, 2017,

2018 and 2019 so far)? Please break this down by year and include details of the nature of the offence (eg Sexual Grooming/ Malicious Communications/ Harassment).

In Response:

Following receipt of your request, searches were conducted within Northumbria Police with the keywords "Xbox Live" and "Fortnite" .  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.

As with any keyword search, the search will only return exact matches within the Crime MO. This does not account for differences in terminology and/or spelling used. Also, we cannot search the crime investigation screens/additional information screens, if the terms are not used within the MO the crime will not be identified.

If you decide to write an article / use the enclosed data we would expect that you to take into consideration the factors highlighted above so as not to mislead members of the public or official bodies or misrepresent the relevance of the whole or any part of this disclosed material.
