Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner did not have the information requested.

Dear Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner,

I am researching the impact of CCTV on burglary and theft cases and would like to request:

- 2020 stats on burglary and theft cases solved and proved with CCTV
- 2020 stats on burglary and theft cases not solved because of poor CCTV footage quality

Yours faithfully,
