Dog Attacks Reports Since 2009

Question

The number of dog attacks recorded by your police force.

I’d like to see the figures for the last eight years (since 2009), and broken down by year, or where possible broken down by month.

Clarification received 21st July 2017:

I can confirm I would like the number of recorded offences of “Owner or person in charge allowing dog to be dangerously out of control in any place (whether or not in a public place) injuring any person or assistance dog” from the last eight years.

Answer

Please find the requested information below:

Please note that in 2015 there was a change in the offence to include both private and public places.
