RESPONSE

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

USED

I have included a count of offences recorded on the CMS crime register where the Vehicle type MOPED has been recorded as USED, where the offence was recorded between 01-Apr-2012 and 31-Mar-2017.

Of the above count, I have provided a breakdown of the offence outcome.

STOLEN

I have included a count of offences recorded on the CMS crime register where the Vehicle type MOPED has been recorded as STOLEN, where the offence was recorded between 01-Apr-2012 and 31-Mar-2017.

Of the above count, I have provided a breakdown of the offence outcome.

Please note – more than one vehicle can be recorded on any offence, therefore a count of vehicles is expected to exceed a count of offences.

Offences = 364

Vehicle type MOPED, STOLEN ‘Y’ = 374

I have also provided the crime scene premises type from where the MOPED was stolen, again more than one premise type can be recorded on any offence so a count of premises type is expected to exceed a count of offences.

I have provided data for financial years, however from the request is not clear if it is financial or calendar years that are required.
