Public order offences in Birmingham NPU (1475A/22)


Regarding street harassment regarding women in Ladywood, Birmingham. I can’t find specific data on this as the stats are generic to violence and sexual abuse. Is there anyway I can find specific data out for street harassment against women and any incidents that can be mentioned that have happened. Would highly appreciate this for the last year or more.

I would like a record over the last 2 years from today. I also would like incident reports and stats on public order offence and harassment offence. If there are occurrences in Ladywood where a woman has been harassed on the street by a stranger.

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 considered 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 considered when those data are used.

If you decide to write an article / use the enclosed data we would ask you to take into consideration the factors highlighted in this document so as to not mislead members of the public or official bodies, or misrepresent the relevance of the whole or any part of this disclosed material.
