Date Responded 20 September 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:

I would like the annual figures for drug driving and drink driving offences since 2010 within the Northumbria force area:

  1. The annual figures of drivers arrested for drink driving 
  2. The annual figures of drivers charged for drink driving
  3. The annual figures of drivers arrested for drug driving 
  4. The annual figures of drivers charged for drug driving 

In Response:

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 there are some HO codes that get used which state unclear if drink or drugs.  These have been excluded from our responses to the questions above, but supplied as separate tables underneath for reference labelled “Additional”.

It should also be noted at the data supplied for 2019 is to 1 July 2019.
