Please could you provide the following information for 2022: 2021: 2020: 2019
The total number of mental-health-related incidents that police were called out to.

The total number of incidents police were called out to.
Please be advised that the information that you have requested is not available in a readily retrievable format. In relation to the total number of non-crime related incidents that police were called out to, we do not have a central recording category within the non-crime system which identifies if we attended. Each non- crime log would need to be located and retrieved and manually read to see if the summary detailed if an officer was requested to attend.
In addition, we can only provide data where an officer has attended rather than called out to as this is not a central recording category within our system.
Therefore, the cost of providing you with the information is above the amount to which we are legally required to respond i.e. the cost of locating and retrieving the information exceeds the ‘appropriate level’ as stated in the Freedom of Information (Fees and Appropriate Limit) Regulations 2004.
In accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000, this letter acts as a Refusal Notice for this part of the request and if one part of a request exceeds the fees limit then S12 of the Act applies to the whole request
However, In accordance with Section 16 of the Act I have a duty to provide advice and assistance in relation to your request and can provide information in relation to the majority of the information requested, Please see attached.
This should not be taken as a precedent that additional information would be supplied outside of the time/fees legislation for any subsequent requests
