Dear Mr. Hellyer

Thank you for your request below, received by Warwickshire Police on
November 29, 2017.

Please can you tell me how many children at the age of 10 or below the age
of criminal responsibility have been found responsible for crimes in the
police area and which towns they were in for the past five years
(2012-2017).

Your request will now be considered in accordance with the Freedom of
Information Act 2000.  You will receive a response within the statutory
timescale of 20 working days as defined by the Act, subject to the
information not being exempt or containing a reference to a third party. 
In some circumstances we may be unable to achieve this deadline.  If this
is likely you will be informed and given a revised timescale at the
earliest opportunity.

In some cases there may be a fee payable for the retrieval, collation and
provision of the information you request.  If this is the case you will be
informed and the 20 working day timescale will be suspended until we
receive payment from you. If you choose not to make payment then your
request will remain unanswered. Some requests may also require either full
or partial transference to another public authority in order to answer
your query in the fullest possible way. Again, you will be informed if
this is the case.
