Off-Street Prostitution Policy - 248/20

Date Responded 02 March 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:

What is the Northumbria Police policy on off-street prostitution?

In Response:

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:
