Dangerous Dogs

C Bell made this Freedom of Information request to Lancashire Constabulary

The request was partially successful.

From: C Bell

4 January 2012

Dear Lancashire Constabulary,

I would like to know how many suspected dangerous and/or illegal
dogs you have seized in total under the Dangerous Dogs Act since
June 2010.

I would also like to know how many of the above dogs were seized
because they were suspected banned breeds, and how many were seized
because of their dangerous behaviour.

In addition, please tell me how many people were charged under the
Act following these seizures, and how many of the dogs were
returned to their owners with no further action taken.

Yours faithfully,

C Bell.

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST REFERENCE NO: 3642/12

I write in connection with your request for information dated the 04/01/2012 which was received by Lancashire Constabulary on the same day. I note you seek access to the following information:

INFORMATION RELATING TO DANGEROUS DOGS

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

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.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in Lancashire Constabulary.

Regards,
