Coronavirus (COVID-19)

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

DV Incidents (6233_16)


Under the Freedom of Information Act I would like to know how many incidents of domestic abuse were reported on the below dates. Each date concerned runs from midnight to midnight. I would like to know all reported cases, even if no crime was found to have happened. I would like the figures for crimes that allegedly happened on the dates, as opposed to it being the date of an incident being reported.

Dates information is required for:
Friday May 27
Sunday May 22
Friday May 20
Sunday May 15
Tuesday March 29
Tuesday March 22


Please find attached our response.

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.

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
