Offences under the Dangerous Dogs Act by Breed

The request was refused by Police Scotland.

Dear Police Scotland,

For all years you have data, could you please provide the number of dangerous dogs out of control seized under Section 3 of the Dangerous Dogs act in total and classified by dog breed?

Additionally, for each dog breed where applicable, if you maintain this information, could you please note what proportion of these dogs had been on the Index of Exempt Dogs?

Yours faithfully,

B Treloar

Dear Police Scotland,

Another police service has asked me to clarify my request, so to assist your officers in answering this request I would like to clarify there relevant timeline: please provide the requested data (i.e. the number of dogs out of control seized under S3 of the DDA 1991) for every calendar year since 2000 for which data is available.

Additionally, could you please provide the number of complaints, arrests, and persons charged for an offence relating to S3 Dangerous Dogs Out Of Control of the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 for each calendar year since 2000, to provide data on such offences which did not result in a seizure.

All data should be broken down by breed where available, with a further category for the number of offences which are unclassified.

Yours faithfully,

B Treloar
