Number of Call Records Referring to the Drug 'Spice'

Question

I would like to be provided with the number of times police have been called to an incident or disturbance in your force area involving the use of the drug ‘Spice’ for each month covering the last two years. So the figure can be rounded to the fullest, I am concerned with the time period March 2015 to March 2017.

I am interested in any incident or disturbance where Spice or the use of Spice is mentioned as a contributory factor. I do not require the circumstances of the offence, merely the number for each month over the two year period.

If it could be broken into a table listing the month and then the number of the Spice-related offences, that would be very helpful.

Answer

The below table details the number of call records we have identified that referred to the drug ‘spice’ in the time frame you requested.
