Dear Freedom of Information,

Thank you for your reply. The provision of the links to the data locally and nationally is appreciated.

Is there any recent analytical report produced by Northamptonshire Police on the Use of Force data that you have supplied. The raw data is difficult to interpret.

Yours sincerely,

Paul Crofts
