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

Coventry Incidents (3439_14)


I would like a list of the top ten bars, clubs, restaurants and food and beverage venues (anyone with A1 planning permission, if that helps for clarity), that police were called out to the most in 2013. I would like the list to be specific to Coventry.


Please find attached our response.

Please note that due to inconsistencies in the way incident addresses are recorded the attached data are unlikely to accurate, as one location may be recorded in a number of different ways.

Please also note that an incident is any event that has been reported to the police. Not all of these incidents will involve a recordable offence/crime and the incident may not necessary be linked to, or have occurred on, the named premises.  It may merely have been the closest identifiable landmark.

In addition these data should be interpreted with caution. Comparing numbers of 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.

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.
