Released Under Investigation and Bail statistics by month from June 2018

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Warwickshire Police should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Warwickshire Police,

I am writing to make a request for all the information to which I am entitled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

James Stott made a similar request in 2020 which may be relevant to forces who replied with information. This request, however, extends and expands beyond that request.

-Released under investigation

1. How many people did your force release ‘under investigation’ each month from June 2018 up to and including August 2021?

2. For request 1, please may this be split by crime sub groups for all crime types (see HO Offence Classification index. For example, violence against the person offences are split into homicides, violence with injury, violence without injury, stalking and harassment, death or serious injury caused by unlawful driving)?

3. For request 1, for each month, please can you state the average number of days these individuals were under investigation (prior to being charged or any other outcome was given)?

-Pre-charge bail

4. How many people did your force release on pre-charge bail each month from June 2018 up to and including August 2021?

5. For request 4, for each month, please may this be split by crime sub groups for all crime types (see HO Offence Classification index. For example, violence against the person offences are split into homicides, violence with injury, violence without injury, stalking and harassment, death or serious injury caused by unlawful driving)?

6. For request 4, for each month, please can you state the average number of days these individuals were placed on pre-charge bail (prior to being charged or any other outcome was given)?

Yours faithfully,

John Milik
