Outraging Public Indecency Crimes Since 2015

Question

Under freedom of information laws, I am requesting the number of incidents of particular acts of outraging public indecency that have happened in 2015 and 2016, as well as 2017 to date.

Please note I am only interested in acts of two or multiple people having sex or performing sex acts in public places, not in cases of lone individuals exposing themselves.

To narrow the criteria my request to your police force is as follows:

1. The number of reported incidents of couples or multiple people committing the crime of outraging public indecency in the calendar year 2015

b) the date of the incident

c) the location of the incident

d) summary of incident

e) outcome, that is, arrest, caution or no action

f) the ages of the people involved in the incident

e) Same for 2016 3a - e) Same for 2017 to date.

Answer

The information is detailed in the table below.

The ages of those involved have been provided where recorded.
