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

Please could you also provide a category for the malicious emails e.g. 2,300 phishing emails, 5,000 spam/junk emails, 3,400 anti-virus blocks.

In Response:

Following receipt of your request, searches were conducted with the IC&T Department of Northumbria Police.  I can confirm that the information you have requested is held, in part, by Northumbria Police.  To note this information is only available for the calendar year 2019 as we do not hold this information for 2018.
