Domestic Violence (763_16)

Request

1) The number of incidents marked or flagged as domestic abuse incidents, recorded by your force between 1st January and 31 December for the year 2014.

2) Of these incidents, we would like to know the number of incidents that involved the use of community resolution, as your force defines it.

3) Finally, we would like to know a bit more about the characteristics of the partner/ex-partner domestic abuse incidents (so not the family cases) which involved community resolution. If possible we would like to know: the relationship between the victim and offender, the offence type, the gender of the victim and offender.

Every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete. However, it is important to note that these data have been extracted from a number of data sources used by forces for police purposes. The detail collected to respond specifically to your request is subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large scale recording system. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when interpreting those data.

The figures provided therefore are our best interpretation of relevance of data to your request, but you should be aware that the collation of figures for ad hoc requests may have limitations and this should be taken into account when those data are used.

If you decide to write an article / use the enclosed data we would ask you to take into consideration the factors highlighted in this document so as to not mislead members of the public or official bodies, or misrepresent the relevance of the whole or any part of this disclosed material.
