‘Deliveroo Related’ Crime (740A/23)


1) In the 2022 calendar year, how many crimes were logged by your force where Deliveroo was recorded as being an element? 

[Note: I would hope that this could be achieved by a computer search on the MO and/or “Investigation Summary” fields of crimes for the word/s “deliveroo”, “deliver roo”.]

2) Please provide me with a table showing a breakdown of the crimes from Question 1 that are ‘linked’ to Deliveroo by its mention in the modus operandi and/or the “Investigation Summary”/free-text field.

3) Taking a start date of January 2022 please provide me with copies of the MO and/or “Investigation Summary” fields for the first 10 crimes linked to Deliveroo by its mention.

[Note: To avoid falling into an exemption I am content for the names, ages, geography or any other detail to be redacted to allow for the disclosure of the incident and how it relates to Deliveroo.]
