How many crimes has your force recorded during each of the calendar years 2014; 2015 and 2016; where the crime report contains the word “Amazon”.
Please could you give me a breakdown for each of the calendar years including:
- A summary of the crime report including the month, a description of the offence(s) – please specify the offence(s) recorded and if any goods were stolen the details of said goods and any estimation of their value;
- The age(s) the suspect(s) and alleged victim(s) (please exclude this part of my FoI request if it you conclude it would risk identifying any individuals);
- What the result of the investigation was, for example a charge or caution etc.
We have conducted a keyword search for ‘Amazon’ on our Crimes system which has resulted in the attached offences.
Please note that a value is not recorded in every case and that the items stolen may have been taken from another store that stocks Amazon goods.
Please note that these data should be interpreted with caution. Comparing numbers of incidents/crimes can be misleading and does not necessarily indicate the likelihood of someone being a victim of crime. In addition, the number of incidents/crimes recorded in an area over a period of time can be influenced by a number of factors. Consequently statistics on incidents/crimes for one period may not necessarily be a good indicator of future incidents in that area.
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.
