Bicycles Stolen/ Recovered/ Sold Reports Between 2014-2016

Question

Under the Freedom of Information act I’d like to request the following

The total number of bicycles reported as stolen (inc from burglary) in your force area for 2016/15/14

The number of bicycles returned to their owners in your force area for 2016/15/14

The number of bicycles sold at auction in your force area for 2016/15/14.

Answer

The information provided below may not be 100% accurate.

The stolen figure is a count of each crime of theft of pedal cycle (1 bicycle per crime), and a count of burglaries where a bicycle is listed as property stolen.

We have provided the recovered figure as it is centrally recorded. There are instances where the bicycle will not have been returned to the owner for example when it is retained for evidence.
