Machete Crimes (969_17)


  1. For the months of November and December 2016 how many crimes were logged by your force where a machete was recorded as being an element in the offence? [Note: I would hope that this could be achieved by a computer search on the MO of crimes for the words “machete” or variants of the spelling to include “machette” and “machetes”.


  1. Please provide me with a table showing a breakdown of the crimes from Q.1 that are `linked┬┐ to machete/s by its mention in the MO.


3.Taking the month of December 2016 please provide me with copies of the first 5 MOs that mention machetes. [Note: To avoid falling into an exemption I am content for names, ages, geography or any other personal detail to be redacted].
