Dear Metropolitan Police Service (MPS),

In reply to this question"
Please specify your meaning of vehicle related crime relating to robbery /
burglary?

Do you mean "a" and /or "b" shown below:

(a) Count of Vehicles that were stolen by means of robbery or burglary ?

(b) Vehicle that was used to commit the robbery / burglary ?"

We require A in addition too requiring information on crime stats related to how many vehicles were broken into, for example theft or vehicle related burglary, such as property being stolen inside of cars. I'm also aware that there are other guidelines that can be used to charge suspects such as interference with a motor vehicle, for example, when someone has attempted to open car doors.

Yours faithfully,

Arnie h

Dear Metropolitan Police Service (MPS),

Clarified on 11/10/2017:

"Please specify your meaning of vehicle related crime relating to robbery
/ burglary?

Do you mean "a" and /or "b" shown below:

(a)  Count of Vehicles that were stolen by means of robbery or burglary?

SEARCHES TO LOCATE INFORMATION

To locate the information relevant to your request searches were conducted
at Met HQ Strategy and Performance.

DECISION

I have disclosed the located information for you:

Please find attached to this email, a spreadsheet in which the requested
information has been provided.

The attached spreadsheet shows Vehicle Offences and the number of People
Proceeded Against for Vehicle Offences on the London Borough of Harrow
between the dates of January 2012 and October 2017.

INFORMATION

In response to your request:

"Number of suspects arrested".

The MPS system NSPIS, is used within the MPS to log an individual detained
in police custody. Although a lot of statistical information can be
extracted from NSPIS, the data that you have asked for cannot be
extrapolated. There is no fields on NSPIS that records the borough where
the arrests took place. In relation to borough held information on NSPIS,
NSPIS only shows the borough of the custody suite where the suspect was
detained. This may well be different form the borough on which the crime
occurs.  

In response to your request:

"Number of no further actions."

Since November 2014, each offence is assigned 1 of 29 outcomes. "No
Further Action" is not shown in the list of outcomes. The closest would be
outcome 18 - Investigation complete and no suspect identified.    

Note:

In response to:

"Number of suspects successfully prosecuted, length of custodial sentence
if any. "

The information you have requested is not held by the MPS.

Please note that the police service is responsible for the investigation
of offences however the subsequent prosecution - and potentially a
conviction - would be a matter for the Crown Prosecution Service.
