Could I get the number of jewellery thefts in hospital and the number within that which refer to wedding rings stolen?

Could I get the information from January 1st 2019 to September 30th 2021?


Unfortunately, due to a major change in West Midlands Police recording systems, the information that you have requested beyond 7th April 2021cannot be retrieved. Therefore we are unable to provide the information for this part of your request.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience that this may cause.

Between 01/01/2021 and 06/04/2021, there are 16 records of ‘Jewellery’ stolen from Hospitals.

2 of these records refer to wedding rings.

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.

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.
