Dear I Hudson,

 

Thank you for your requests for information received by West Yorkshire
Police on 22 May 2018.

 

When logging new requests, an authority is able to combine the costs of
any related requests received within a period of 60 consecutive days from;

-          the same person; or

-          people who appear to be acting in concert or in pursuance of a
campaign.

 

As your 3 requests for information all relate to calls to West Yorkshire
Police, we have combined these questions into one request.

 

I've aiming to put context to calls made to WY Police and need a few
figures to do this.

 

a) In 2017 how many calls in total were made to West Yorkshire Police?

 

b) Of the calls what where the total for each category, for example
"CONCERN FOR SAFETY" "SUSPICIOUS CIRCUMSTANCES" "NUISANCE" and so on?

 

c) From the 2017 calls to the police, do you have a record of what problem
is being reported as the biggest "Nuisance" and "Suspicious circumstances"
subjects that are reported to the police?

 

d) If you have record of the problem most reported for these categories
could I also have figures for Bradford for each of these?

 

e) Can I have totals on calls made to the police with regards to the
Bradford district on both anti-social concerns from motorbikes/quadbikes
and also fireworks?

 

I would like to clarify the following:

 

Could you kindly confirm whether you request relates only to 999 emergency
calls, only 101 non-emergency calls, or figures for both?

Please note that your request will be put on hold, until we receive a
response from you. If you do

not respond to this letter within 20 working days, your request will be
withdrawn.

 

 

Kind Regards

Dear Kirsti,

Thank you for your prompt reply, to clarify ideally I'd like separate counts for 999 emergency and 101 non-emergency calls if that is possible.

I was wanting these figures to be able to put context to one perceived nuisance versus another,

Yours sincerely,

I Hudson

Good Afternoon I Hudson,

 

I write in relation to your request for information logged under the FOIA
2000.

 

I've aiming to put context to calls made to WY Police and need a few
figures to do this.

 

a) In 2017 how many calls in total were made to West Yorkshire Police?

 

b) Of the calls what where the total for each category, for example
"CONCERN FOR SAFETY" "SUSPICIOUS CIRCUMSTANCES" "NUISANCE" and so on?

 

c) From the 2017 calls to the police, do you have a record of what problem
is being reported as the biggest "Nuisance" and "Suspicious circumstances"
subjects that are reported to the police?

 

d) If you have record of the problem most reported for these categories
could I also have figures for Bradford for each of these?

 

e) Can I have totals on calls made to the police with regards to the
Bradford district on both anti-social concerns from motorbikes/quadbikes
and also fireworks?

 

Clarification 22/05/2018

 

To clarify ideally I'd like separate counts for 999 emergency and 101
non-emergency calls if that is possible.

 

I was wanting these figures to be able to put context to one perceived
nuisance versus another.

 

I would like to clarify the following:

 

Our analytics department can only give details of those calls which were
logged and became ‘Incidents’.

They can then look at the specific types of incidents.

Many calls (mostly 101 calls) will be queries/follow up enquiries, and not
necessarily a new incident being reported.

 

Therefore could you please confirm if you are happy for us to proceed with
numbers of logged incidents that came in as 999 or 101 as detailed in
questions a) to e)?

 

 

Kind Regards

 

Kirsti Kaye

Dear Gemma,

Thank you for your time on the FOIA, it is much appreciated, it's very welcome that West Yorkshire Police are being so open and helpful with Freedom of Information requests.

I have just one tiny clarification, the report you've sent, if I total up all categories for the West Yorkshire Force, that equals 604,986, so it is correct to say that this many incidents were reported to the police in 2017?

Yours faithfully,

I Hudson
