Coronavirus (COVID-19)

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

Stolen Phones Tablets, Laptops (2757_18)


I am writing to request data for the number of stolen mobile phones, tablets and laptops (individually) for the past three annual years (2015, 2016 and 2017) in your constituency. Alternatively, if this data is not available individually I would like to request just the number of stolen mobile phones alone.

I request this data for the annual period of 2015 to 2017, alternatively if not available in this format, the most recent three-year annual period will suffice.

The time periods requested are:

¿              2017 (January to December)

¿              2016 (January to December)

¿              2015 (January to December)

Please provide the data in the following format in an excel document preferably:

Number of mobile phones stolen

¿              2017 – XX

¿              2016 – XX

¿              2015 – XX

Number of tablets stolen

¿              2017 – XX

¿              2016 – XX

¿              2015 – XX

Number of laptops stolen

¿              2017 – XX

¿              2016 – XX

¿              2015 – XX





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.
