Dear Information Compliance,

Apologises for the lack of clarity in respect of one part of my FOI request.

I hereby clarify my FOI request as follows:

By "Sexual Contact Crimes" against Children, I mean Crimes such as Rape, Indecent Assault, Molestation of a Child or Children under 16, or Grooming of a Child or Children under 16 with evidenced or clear intent to commit Sexual Offences;

Furthermore, by "more than a handful" of Cat A or Cat B images, I mean at least 1% of the overall number of images, except where that 1% of images would be over 25 images (to wit, the total number of images was over 2,500);

The number of images for those under 1% and those over 1% would be very much appreciated, together with the percentage and associated numerical statistics for those with a moderate to very large total of overall images (to wit over 1,000 to potentially millions images.)

The more data the better, but I am conscious you have time limits and there would be a potential charge for a lot of information and research.

Of course, given sufficient statistics, I could work out the percentages for myself, but I will leave yourselves to decide whether or not you are willing to table all of the relevant numbers and percentages (I would suggest that an Excel table would work these out automatically).

Thanking you in advance.

Yours sincerely,

Adrian Paul Bryan-Vince

Dear Boynton, Sian 8066,

In view of your comments regarding Resources and Time Costings, I am hereby
significant simplifying my FOI Request as follows (I have calculated that this will
reduce the amount of Data required by around 70% - the change in the Time Period
reduces this by 60% in itself):

1. [ During 2014 ], how many people were Charged with Offences of
Possession of Child Pornography?

2. Of those Charged, how many were Convicted?

3 [ Question removed ]

4. Of those Convicted, how many were given a Sexual Harm Prevention Order
(S.H.P.O or S.O.P.O.)?

5. Of those Convicted, how many had previously been Convicted of Sexual
Contact or Grooming Crime(s) against Children Under 16?

6. Of those Convicted, how many were later Convicted of Sexual Contact or
Grooming Crime(s) against Children Under 16?

If your Police Force will even not Comply with the above Significantly Reduced FOI Request, I would immediate insist upon an Internal Review.

Thanking you in advance of your cooperation.

Yours faithfully,

AdrianPaulBryanVince
