Anti Social Behaviour & Crime Statistics - 567/10
Dated: 07 Jun 2011
Date of request: 15/09/2010
Date of response: 22/09/2010
Provision of information held by Northumbria Police made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the 'Act')
Thank you for your email dated 15 September 2010 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 by a Public Authority (including the Police), subject to certain limitations and exemptions.
The specific information I am looking for is Antisocial Behaviour and crime statistics on a Friday & Saturday evening 5-8pm relating to young people aged 10-19 as the perpetrators around the Raich Carter Sports Centre.
If we could get hold of data for 2008-present that would be great.
We have now had the opportunity to fully consider your request and I provide a response for your attention.
We have researched police foot beats which cover an area with a radius of 1500 metres from the Raich Carter Centre. Incidents and arrests have been researched from 1 April 2008 to 31 August 2010. In order to identify the arrests in the area concerned, it has been necessary to check each individual arrest to ensure they met the above criteria. In the case of other crime committed in that area, it is impossible to speculate on how much crime is actually committed in that area in the specific time frame concerned, as in some cases crimes may have been reported after the time frame concerned, but it is unknown exactly when those crimes may have actually been committed, or by whom, if those crimes remain undetected.
|Apr 08 - Aug 10, Fri & Sat between 5-8pm involving 10-19 yr olds||Crime||7|
|Apr 08 - Aug 10, Fri & Sat between 5-8pm involving 10-19 yr olds||Fridays||106|
