Return Home Interviews and missing children

We're waiting for Poppy Damon to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Lancashire Constabulary,

Please find below a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act. The data I require relates to Return Home Interviews (RHI), child exploitation and missing children

When you respond with confirmation that you have received my request, could you please advise whether any clarification is needed in order to complete my request? Please ensure any questions arrive to me prior to the 20 day deadline.

My questions are:
+ How many instances of missing children did you have reported to you Jan 2017-Jan 2019? Can you send gender/age/location/outcome breakdown? Please can you also indicate how many different children were reported missing for comparison.
+ Can you send me your information sharing protocols from local authority Return Home Interviews, if you have any? Please indicate if you do not.
+ If a senior member of staff is happy to offer an opinion - would you say you feel enough information is being shared with you by local authorities from return interviews? (Y/N)
+Do you have any data gathering mechanisms for whether child exploitation happens in particular areas and is this database supported by information gained from information sharing with the local authority?
+How many times was child exploitation reported to you in connection with a Return Home Interview Jan 2014-Jan 2019?

Yours faithfully,

Poppy Damon

Dear Olivia,

Thank you so much for your email and for assisting me with my request.

When I say 'different children' this is to avoid being given a number for total instances of a child being reported missing and reflects the fact that often children runaway more than once. Other authorities who have provided this data have laid it out as follows:
child 1- 16 times
child 2- 38 times

Other authorities have also included a total number of children reported missing. For example 'we had 300 missing children and 1K instances of them being reported missing'.

Let me know if I can telephone and offer any further clarification.

Yours sincerely,

Poppy Damon
