Thank you for your enquiry which has been logged under the above reference. Having completed my enquiries I am able to respond as follows:

Under the Freedom of Information Act, I would like to know: during the past three years, how many people aged 70 or over were arrested by Essex Police? And what was each of these people arrested for?

This is similar to a recent request where we provided information on "over 65's" arrested and I have attached a chart (ref. 2636results.pdf) which shows the information provided at the time.

I hope this also answers your enquiry.
