Murder Investigations - 1199/20

Date Responded 11 September 2020

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.  How many murder and manslaughter investigations have been launched by Northumbria Police between January 2015 and July 2020.

For each investigation can you specify:

2.  The date of the investigation (for example June 2016)

3.  The area the crime took place (Newcastle, Sunderland, South Shields)

4.  The outcome of the investigation

In Response:

Following receipt of your request, searches were conducted with the Crime 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 – your request asked for information to include August 2020.  As the date of your submission was 5th August, and as requests under the FOIA are for information held at the time of submission, and we are unable to predict a future date, this was changed to the last full complete month – July 2020.
