Coronavirus (COVID-19)

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

Deaths in Custody (7535_15)


I would like to request statistics for all deaths in custody, I have received such information for the years 2002/3-2014/15 from the Metropolitan Police Service therefore the same time frame would be preferable. The stats I have from the MPS included 1) a table of deaths in chronological order, 2) a table of deaths in police borough order, 3) annual totals by home office categories and 4) breakdown of deaths by ethnicity and gender. If it is possible to get stats aggregated in this manner that would be preferable, otherwise whichever format West Midlands Police keeps such statistics in.

I would also like to request all press releases related to the death of Micheal ‘Mickey’ Powell (died 7th September 2003).
