Dear Essex Police,

Under the Freedom of Information Act, I would like details of each time Essex Police officers caught an under 18 carrying a weapon in the past two years. How old was the child and what was the weapon? I would also like to know which of these were in Central Division.

the attachment appears to be missing - if the requester still wants the information, they should contact the public authority.

There is no delivery error as such so I will change the category.
