Coronavirus (COVID-19)

How we are working to keep our FOI Requests running during COVID-19

Month: April 2016

Police Dogs (3713_16)

I would like to know, since 2006 how many West Midlands Police dogs have died while with the force.
I would like to know the cause of each dog’s death and the circumstances in which it died. I would also like to know the name, age and breed of each dog as well as its role – how specifically it aided police – and date of death.
If possible, I would also like to know if anyone was held accountable for each death and any disciplinary action that was taken and who against.
I would like each case set out individually.

Road Deaths (4201_16)

For Lincolnshire we have had our record number of road deaths for the last decade with 16 from January to March this year.

We were wondering if we could get a comparison with West Midland’s figures for road deaths for that same period of time?

Over 65 Crimes (3090_16)

Please state the total number of reported crimes committed by individuals aged 65 and over, recorded by your force, in each of the following calendar years: a) 2012, b) 2013, c) 2014, d) 2015 and e) 2016 so far.

ATM Thefts (3192_16)

Following several reports we have had from the public regarding intimidation at ATMs in and around the Coventry area, we were interested to know whether West Midlands Police have noticed a rise in these types of incidents?

We have heard about people standing to close to those trying to withdraw at ATMs or even incidents that may have been more than intimidation (stealing cash, card and or pin numbers) in the areas of Earlsdon and at the ASDA in Jubilee Crescent in Coventry.
