2020 CCTV burglary and theft statistics

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Merseyside Police and Crime Commissioner should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Merseyside 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,

Will Waldron

OPCC, Merseyside Police and Crime Commissioner

Dear Mr Waldron,

 

Re: Freedom of Information Request Ref: 2021-36

 

I refer to your recent request:

 

“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”

 

I am afraid that the information requested is not held by the Office of
the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC), as it relates to operational
policing matters which are under the control of the Chief Constable of
Merseyside Police. You may therefore wish to contact Merseyside Police’s
FOI Team directly to request this information. Their email address is:
[1][email address]

 

May I thank you for taking the time to contact this office.

 

Kind regards,

 

Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Merseyside
