Dear West Yorkshire Police,

I would like to know the statistics for gun crime in the Huddersfield district and where it is within Huddersfield that gun crime/firearm incidents are the most frequent.

Please could you return me the figures for.

1 - The number of incidents in which a firearm was, or was suspected, of being involved.
2 - The location of the incidents.

I would like these figures broken down for the years 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.

Yours faithfully,

Rebecca Corbett
