I contacted our Crime Management System (CMS) Administrator for assistance with your request. She provided me with the enclosed data and the following explanation of her search criteria/result caveats:

POSSESSION OFFENCES – this is a count of offences recorded under the Home Office Offence class - POSSESSION OF ARTICLE WITH BLADE OR POINT, broken down by the scene of crime area. Where the offence was recorded on the CMS crime register between the following dates in the District SHEFFIELD -

  • 01-JAN-2016 AND 31-DEC-2016
  • 01-JAN-2017 AND 31-OCT-2017
  • 01-JAN-2017 AND 31-MAY-2017

USED – This is a count of offences where a KNIFE (in accordance with the Home Office Knife crime definition) has been recorded as USED, broken down by the Home Office Offence class and the Scene of Crime Area. Where the offence was recorded on the CMS crime register between the following dates in the District SHEFFIELD -

  • 01-JAN-2016 AND 31-DEC-2016
  • 01-JAN-2017 AND 31-OCT-2017
  • 01-JAN-2017 AND 31-MAY-2017

The requester has not been specific regarding offence types, therefore I have included all offences types where a KNIFE was used. I have provided the data broken down by Home Office class.
