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.
What is the Northumbria Police policy on off-street prostitution?
Following receipt of your request, searches were conducted with the Safeguarding Department of Northumbria Police. I can confirm that the information you have requested is not held by Northumbria Police.
We do not have a specific policy/procedure around ‘off street prostitution’.
However, in order to aid and assist you we can advise that we do have a procedure entitled Dealing with Prostitution and Sex Workers which supports our Protecting the Vulnerable Policy (please note this is currently under review) - which I have attached above; these are used alongside National Guidance, to which I have provided a link to below:
