RTC's and Crimes in Car Parks - 404/20

Date Responded 18 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:

Under the freedom of information act, I would like to know the following. Please break down the figures by year, for the past five years (March 2015 to March 2020).

  1. How many car accidents / damages to vehicles in car parks in your area have there been?
  2. How many thefts have been reported in car parks in your area?
  3. How many 'other' crimes crimes such as assaults (human) have been reported in your area in car parks in your area?”

In Response:

Following receipt of your request, searches were conducted with the Corporate Development 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 the figures for each year are from March to February, this being a full year.  Figures for March 2020 were not available at the time of the submission of your request, this being 3rd March 2020 so we have not been able to provide.

RTCs are not defined as crimes.  Figures at point 1 have therefore been provided separately as different search criteria had to be used to extract.

Criminal damage to a vehicle would be defined as a crime.

Should an RTC have been defined as a crime, it has been removed from the RTC figures.
