Dear Mr/Ms Wells,

Enquiry Ref: 11842/2020

I write in connection with your request for information dated 22nd March 2020 and received by this office on 23rd March 2020. Please accept our sincere apologies for the late response due to staffing issues in the department that records and holds this information, your patience is appreciated. Below are the questions raised in your request and our response.

1) Since 12th January 2019 how many instances of arrest have resulted in:
(a) criminal charges?
(b) court proceedings?
(c) sentencing?
2) How many crimes have been reported to Cleveland Police involving theft or attempted theft from or fraud against an elderly person during:
(a) the period from 12th January?
(b) the past 5 years?
For the avoidance of doubt an elderly person should be taken to be 65 or older.
3) For response (2 - crimes against elderly people) please provide the information from question (1 - number arrested / charged / appearing in court / sentenced).
Please provide this information in full where possible.
a) We have made enquiries with the PQR Performance Team and have attached a document that contains all of the requested information we have been able to retrieve, if a suspect is not recorded as arrested and just charged they are not included in the arrested figures.
In relation to Court proceedings and sentencing whilst it is the duty of Cleveland Police to identify and apprehend suspects, decisions regarding prosecutions (court proceedings) is the responsibility of the Crown Prosecution Service and Convictions (sentencing) is that of HM Courts Service therefore such data will be held by them.

Please note any statistical data supplied in relation to Freedom of Information requests is a snapshot of data held at the time the request was received by the Freedom of Information office and is subject to constant change/updates.

The Cleveland Police response to your request is unique and it should be noted that Police Forces do not use generic systems or identical procedures to capture and record data therefore responses from Cleveland Police should not be used as a comparison with any other force response you receive.

If you are not satisfied with this response or any actions taken in dealing with your request you have the right to request an independent internal review of your case under our review procedure. The APP College of Policing guidance states that a request for internal review should be made within 20 working days of the date on this response or 40 working days if extenuating circumstances to account for the delay can be evidenced.

We have made every effort to ensure a response was provided within statutory deadlines, however due to current circumstances delays have been unavoidable. If your response was late we apologise for any inconvenience it may have caused. If we can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact this office.

Yours sincerely,

Ms E McGuigan
