Audit of 'Occurrence Numbers' Gwent Police

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, National Audit Office should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear National Audit Office

Under the Freedom of Information Act, please provide a formal response from the National Audit Office, to the following questions :–

1. What date did Gwent Police start issuing ‘Occurrence Numbers’, instead of 'Crime reference numbers' to victims of crime?

2. Has any other police force within the UK adopted the use of the 'Occurrence Numbers', instead of issuing 'Crime Reference Numbers' to victims of crime?

I understand that under the Freedom of Information Act, I should be entitled to a response within 20 working days.

Please note that your full reply to the above questions should be sent by e-mail to the return address shown in the heading to this message. This is because both the request and its response are published for public scrutiny on the web site through which this request has been made.
