Dear Mr Davis,

Enquiry Ref: 12536/2021

I write in connection with your request for information dated 14th January 2021 and received by this office on that date. Below are the questions raised in your request and all of the information we have been able to retrieve.

Please supply crime figures for September 2020, October 2020, November 2020, December 2020 and January 2021 for Linthorpe, Park, Ayresome, Newport, Town Centre and Acklam Wards in Middlesbrough.
Please break down the crimes into street or road please also state how many of these crimes have been solved or an arrest made and a person charged
a) We have attached a document that provides the information requested. In addition to this Cleveland Police would also rely upon the following;

Section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) places two duties on public authorities. Unless exemptions apply, the first duty at Section 1(1) (a) is to confirm or deny whether the information specified in a request is held. The second duty at Section 1(1) (b) is to disclose information that has been confirmed as being held. Where exemptions are relied upon Section 17 of FOIA requires that we provide the applicant with a notice which: a) states that fact b) specifies the exemption(s) in question and c) states (if that would not otherwise be apparent) why the exemption applies.
Cleveland Police can neither confirm nor deny that it holds any other information pertinent to this request as the duty in Section 1(1) (a) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 does not apply, by virtue of the following exemptions:
Section 30(3) Investigations;
This should not be taken as conclusive evidence that any information that would meet your request exists or does not exist.
Section 30 is a class based qualified exemption and consideration must be given as to whether there is a public interest in neither confirming nor denying the information exists is the appropriate response.

Public Interest Test
Considerations favouring disclosure.
Disclosure could provide the investigating officers with additional information in relation to an ongoing investigation and therefore enhance the ability and professionalism of the force and individual officers.

Considerations favouring non-disclosure.
The inappropriate release of information could undermine any ongoing or future investigations and/or the court system?

Balancing Test:
Whilst the public interest considerations favouring disclosure are noted in considering the arguments for and against release of the information requested, the balance in the public interest favours non-disclosure. Disclosure, at this moment in time, may lead to other law enforcement being compromised or it could significantly weaken any on-going investigations and any future investigations.

None of the above can be viewed as an inference that any other information you seek does or does not exist.
Please note any statistical data supplied in relation to Freedom of Information requests is a snapshot of data held at the time the request was received by the Freedom of Information office and is subject to constant change/updates.

The Cleveland Police response to your request is unique and it should be noted that Police Forces do not use generic systems or identical procedures to capture and record data therefore responses from Cleveland Police should not be used as a comparison with any other force response you receive.

If you are not satisfied with this response or any actions taken in dealing with your request you have the right to request an independent internal review of your case under our review procedure. The APP College of Policing guidance states that a request for internal review should be made within 20 working days of the date on this response or 40 working days if extenuating circumstances to account for the delay can be evidenced.

We have made every effort to ensure a response was provided within statutory deadlines, however due to current circumstances delays have been unavoidable. If your response was late we apologise for any inconvenience it may have caused and thank you for your patience. If we can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact this office.

Yours sincerely,
