Response

Please find enclosed our response.

 Please note that these data should be interpreted with caution.

 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.

 1.  How many alcohol breath tests did your force carry out where the mode of recording is “ROAD” December 2018?

 632

 2.  How many of these breathalyser tests passed / failed.

 121 – Failed *

 64 – Passed *

 *It is important to note that these figures are for pass and fail only, other reasons can be recorded for example – the device has registered Zero Alcohol, the subject has failed to provide sufficient sample, sometimes it will provide a partial reading.

The device has been switched on, but not used immediately. The system automatically powers down to save battery.

The system has detected alcohol but this is under the prescribed limit.

 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.
