If limited by time constraints, please prioritise answers in order, e.g. Q1, Q2, Q3.
Therefore I should be grateful if you would specify whether you want arrests for drink driving including those who are subsequently under the limit and released NFA Or would you like people charged with drink driving. If so should that include people charged with failing to provide a drink drive sample?
Apologies for the delay in getting back to you. Would it be possible to get a breakdown for both? Just by month/year would be fine for this.

Please note that these data should be interpreted with caution. Comparing numbers of incidents/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.
