Dangerous Dogs

C Bell made this Freedom of Information request to Greater Manchester Police

The request was refused by Greater Manchester Police.

From: C Bell

4 January 2012

Dear Greater Manchester Police,

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

Dear C Bell,

I write in connection with your request for information which was received
by Greater Manchester Police today.  Your request will now be considered
in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the Act). 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 Greater Manchester Police 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.
Should you have any further inquiries concerning this matter, please write
or contact The Information Access Team, on any of the following telephone

Kind regards
