Freedom of Information,

Dear Mr Badshah

 

FOI Request Reference: 014421/17

 

Thank you for your request for information, received 28/12/2017.

 

REQUEST

 

I would like to get the figures for the number of sexual assaults on
flights to and from the West Midlands which the force investigated in each
of the past two calendar years please and what the nature of the complaint
was.

 

RESPONSE

 

Please find below our response.

 

Note that these data should be interpreted with caution. Comparing numbers
of incidents/crimes can be misleading and does not necessarily indicate
the likelihood of someone being a victim of crime. In addition, the number
of incidents/crimes recorded in an area over a period of time can be
influenced by a number of factors. Consequently statistics on
incidents/crimes for one period may not necessarily be a good indicator of
future incidents in that area.

 

Every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and
complete. However, it is important to note that these data have been
extracted from a number of data sources used by forces for police
purposes. The detail collected to respond specifically to your request is
subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large scale recording system.
As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes
and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when interpreting
those data.

 

The figures provided therefore are our best interpretation of relevance of
data to your request, but you should be aware that the collation of
figures for ad hoc requests may have limitations and this should be taken
into account when those data are used.

 

If you decide to write an article / use the enclosed data we would ask you
to take into consideration the factors highlighted in this document so as
to not mislead members of the public or official bodies, or misrepresent
the relevance of the whole or any part of this disclosed material.
