Dear Ms Brommage

 

Thank you for your request which I have copied below. In order for us to
provide you with the information you require some clarification is
necessary.

 

As you may be a wear there are calls to scrap investigations into historic
child sex abuse cases.

 

I would like to know figures of child sex abuse cases brought to Avon and
Somerset constabulary from 2012-2015.

 

Please can you clarify what particular information you are seeking in your
questions. Do you require the number of historic child abuse cases that
have been reported to the Constabulary between 2012-2015 or alternatively
are you looking for the total number of all child sex abuse cases that
were reported between 2012-2015? Can you also please clarify that by child
you mean a victim under the age of 18? Finally can you please specify what
you mean by a sex abuse case – we record crimes by offence committed. Do
you require the number of crimes that we would classify as a sexual
offences where the victim is under 18?

 

I will be unable to start to process your request until I have received
your clarification. If your clarification is not received within 20
working days this request will be closed.

Yours sincerely,

 

R Pritchard
