Fancy Dress (5373_14)

Request

I would like information relating to incidents in which the force has been called to deal with

people wearing fancy dress costumes.

 

If it is not possible to identify the type of fancy dress costume (point 2 – below) then I would like

the same information but specifically for people dressed as ‘Ghosts’. The type of costume is the

detail that I am most interested in.

 

I would like the following details for each incident that has occurred since January 1 2013:

 

  1. The date and location of the incident
  2. The type(s) of fancy dress costume(s) involved
  3. The nature of the incident – e.g. suspicious circumstances, criminal damage – and, if

possible, a brief description of what occurred.

  1. The outcome of the incident – e.g. whether anybody was arrested, cautioned etc.

Response

Using a search field of ‘fancy dress’ there were 14 relevant recorded incidents on our system, no relevant incidents were identified using a search field ‘ghost’.

 

  1. The date and location of the incident

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.
