In the last 5 years how many dog attacks have there been within each year and altogether?

Thank you for your recent request for information regarding the above,
which has been passed to me for attention and reply.


This organisation does not respond to FOI requests, as the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 (“the Act”) does not apply to us.


Neither York Minster nor the Minster’s governing body (the Chapter of
York) is a “public authority” as defined by Schedule 1 of the Act.


“York Minster Police” is simply the name we use for York Minster’s
in-house security team – it is not a part of the national police service.


The territorial police force responsible for investigating all crime and
responding to all 101/999 Police calls in York is North Yorkshire Police.


I hope that this clarification is helpful to you.
