Stations and custody suites - 297/19

Date Responded 13 March 2019

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:

a)         Police stations (using the same definition as my original FOI)  263/19 refers

b)         Custody suites

c)         Custody cells

…did you have within your force area on 31/12/09?

NB: I would like individual totals to be provided for the above three categories.

For example, if your reply to Question 1 of my original FOI request (submitted on 20/02/19) was that you had closed down or mothballed 1 police station and opened none within the calendar year 2010, I want to know how many police stations you started out the year with. The same goes for custody cells and custody suites.

In Response:

a)The number of police stations according to the particular definition on 31/12/09 was 27.

b&c Information not held.
