Priorities which have been set, or items raised by the community at Forums
etc, or to some other measure of incidents. Over what period are you
seeking information, please?

2) In terms of crime statistics, will data for the last twelve months be

This application is now suspended pending clarification of your

After receiving your reply, your request will then be considered and you
