Night club crimes (7632/19)



I am looking to obtain information regarding crimes in or on the premises of bars and night clubs in the West Midlands.

I would like to know the number of knife and assault crimes reported over a period of four years either in or on the premises of bars and nightclubs that you have on record. .

By knife crimes, I mean possession of a knife or a sharp object or wounding or stabbings with a knife or sharp object.

By assault crimes I mean common assault crimes sexual assault, battery, GBH, ABH and wounding.

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.
