6. How many people were taken into custody by your force in the financial year ending March 2017?

Answer

1. We had 39 police stations open with 28 front counters as of March 2010.

2. The Force had 10 custody suites open as of March 2010.

3. We had 34 police stations and 26 front counters at the end of March 2017.

4. The Force had 5 custody suites open as of March 2017.

5. 45,410 people.

6. 22,278 people. The drop in arrests can be attributed to a general fall in recorded crime, and a change related to Code G of PACE. The consequence of this change is that there has been an increase in the use of voluntary attendance which is used as an alternative to arrest and detention.
