Coronavirus (COVID-19)

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

Breaches of non-molestation or restraining orders (2679/20 )

 

Request

I would like to receive information regarding reports to police of breaches of non-molestation or restraining orders.

I have located a previous FOI request which covers part of the information I am looking for, but would like to request further details.

Specifically, I would like to know:

Non-molestation Orders Birmingham

1 Total number of recorded reports to police of breaches of non-molestation orders in 2017, 2018 and 2019 (broken down by year).

2 The recorded outcome of the above cases.

Non-molestation Orders West Midlands

1 Total number of recorded reports to police of breaches of non-molestation orders in 2019

2 The recorded outcome of the above cases.

Response

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.
