Coronavirus (COVID-19)

How we are working to keep our FOI Requests running during COVID-19

Pub/Club Violence (2931_15)


I would like to know how many incidents of violent crimes committed against a person, taking place in pubs and bars, were reported to this police force in each calendar year 2010-2014, and how many in 2015 from January to the end of June.


I require data in relation to Home Office Counting Rules ‘Violence Against The Person’ Offences only (i.e. excluding Robbery and Sexual Offences)


Please find attached (2931_attachment_01.pdf) and note that the location types provided are the closest categories that we hold in relation to your request.

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.
