Dear Sussex Police,

I would like to make a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act (2000).

I’d like to request information on Jewellery that has been reported as stolen;
1) The amount of cases of reported stolen jewellery, across all theft offence types.
2) If known, the total value of all jewellery that has been stolen.

I’m looking for information specifically within the area of Brighton and Hove.

If I could please receive these for 2018, 2019, 2020 that would be fantastic.

Yours faithfully,

Russ Hunter

Dear Russ,

Thank you for your request which was received by Sussex Police.

This request will be dealt with under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and you will receive a response within the statutory timescale of 20 working days as defined by the Act, from the date of receipt. In some circumstances Sussex Police may be unable to achieve this deadline. If this is likely you will be informed and given a revised time-scale at the earliest opportunity.

Some requests may also require either full or partial transference to another public authority in order to answer your query in the fullest possible way. Again, you will be informed if this is the case.

Please Note:
Sussex Police are currently receiving a high volume of FOI requests at a time of reduced staffing levels to process them. Every effort is being made to comply with the statutory 20 working day response deadline but on occasions this may not be possible – we apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.

Yours sincerely


Sussex Police HQ
