Police Collisions (7879/19)


Refined request

As your request related to Driver Fatigue, we are unable to identify and locate information within the cost limit in respect of this.

Can I ask are you making a new request for police involved collisions and the time of day they occurred between 2010-2016 regardless of the reason for the collision?

Original Request

I would like to request the following information that I believe will be held by you and should be easily accessible;

1) Number of police officers (and police staff where recorded please) who have had a blameworthy road traffic collision, by year, 2010-2016, where fatigue has been listed as a contributory factor;

2) If possible, please provide year, time of day, duty shift, if the officer (or staff member) was on duty or travelling to/from duty, if injury classification was slight, severe or fatal.


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.
