Custody Suicide (5446_14)

Request

I would like to request the following information under the Freedom of Information Act.

I would like to know how many suicides there have been of individuals in police custody, or within a month of their release from police custody, from August 2009 to August 2014.

I would like this information broken down by year and number of suicides in police custody, or within a month of their release from police custody.

For example:

2009: 5

2010: 8

Please note that my request does not breach Data Protection laws as I am not requesting that you identify the individuals who have committed suicide, merely the total, anonymous number of individuals.
