Burglaries reported(557A/22)


I would like to know, for each of 2019, 2020 and 2021, and 2022 so far:

1) The total number of burglaries reported to West Midlands Police.

2) How many of these reported burglaries officers physically attended.

To clarify, I’d like the information broken down separately for each year, showing on how many occasions officers went to the scene of a reported burglary.


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.
