Child abduction and kidnap (2879_15)

Request

I’m writing to you to gather details of child abduction (and kidnapping) at the police force level.

I’d be very grateful if you could supply the following information:

  1. From 1 April 2014 to 31 March 2015, how many crimes* of child abduction by a parent (Home Office classification^ 13/1) were recorded in the West Midlands?
  1. From 1 April 2014 to 31 March 2015, how many crimes* of child abduction by other persons (Home Office classification^ 13/2) were recorded in the West Midlands?
  1. From 1 April 2014 to 31 March 2015, how many crimes* of kidnapping (Home Office classification^ 36) – when the victim was aged under 18 at the time of the offence – were recorded in the West Midlands?

*I’m looking for information on crimes recorded rather than ‘incidents’.
