Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear West Yorkshire Police,

I would be grateful if you provide the following information relating to the use of voluntary interviews (also known as voluntary attendance or ‘caution plus 3’) by your police force.

For each of the individual 12 months from April 2018 to March 2019 inclusive:

1. The total number of voluntary interviews of adult suspects (aged 18 or over)

2. The total number of voluntary interviews of adult suspects (aged 18 or over), in which the need for an appropriate adult (under PACE Code C) was recorded.

It would be very helpful if the data could be provided in a table or Excel format.

Thank you for your efforts in relation to this request.

Yours faithfully,
Chris Bath

Dear Freedom of Information,

Thank you for swiftly responding to my two FOI requests.

I would be grateful if you could clarify a couple of matters with regard to the data.

(1) The request was for the 12 month period 01/04/2019 to 31/03/2019. In your response, the data is referred to as covering the 15 month period 01/01/2018 to 31/03/2019. Is this just a typo and the data is actually from 01/04/2019 ?

(2) The request was for "each of the individual 12 months". This monthly breakdown is critical to the purpose of the request. Could you provide the data broken down by month?

Yours sincerely with thanks in advance,

Chris Bath
