Disclosure Details

Crimes - 1207/16

Dated: 25 Nov 2016

Provision of information held by Northumbria Police made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the 'Act')

Thank you for your e mail dated 31 October 2016 in which you made a request for access to certain information which may be held by Northumbria Police.

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: 

The number of reports of crimes that have taken place at bus or metro stops in all of the Northumbria Police area since September 2011. 

Details on the reports of crimes taken place at bus and metro stops since September 2011, such as the nature of the crime and at what time it took place. 

If possible, please also provide information on reports of the metro or bus stop that has had the most reported incidents out of all of them, since September 2011. 

To clarify I would like to know the number of recorded crimes. 

We have now had the opportunity to fully consider your request and I provide a response for your attention. 

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. 

It is not possible to provide information on reports of the metro or bus stop that has had the most reported incidents within the time constraints of the Act.

Due to the different methods of recording information across 43 forces, a specific response from one constabulary should not be seen as an indication of what information could be supplied (within cost) by another.  Systems used for recording these figures are not generic, nor are the procedures used locally in capturing the data.  For this reason responses between forces may differ, and should not be used for comparative purposes. 

The information we have supplied to you is likely to contain intellectual property rights of Northumbria Police.  Your use of the information must be strictly in accordance with the Copyright Designs and Patents Act 1988 (as amended) or such other applicable legislation.  In particular, you must not re-use this information for any commercial purpose.
