Gym & Leisure Centre Thefts (141A/24)


I wondered if you could please provide the following information. Theft from gyms, leisure centres, and fitness centres in your area in 2023.

Also please can I request thefts from gyms, leisure centres, and fitness centres in your area from 2020 (broken down by year if possible)


Table – Total theft offences at specified locations:

Location Year Grand Total

Gymnasium 10 54 64 57 185
Leisure Centre 7 37 63 45 152
Sports Club* 22 14 8 13 57
Grand Total 39 105 135 115 394

* We do not have a Location Type of ‘fitness centre’ so have provided figures for ‘Sports Club’ as the closest alternative.

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.
