In the last three and a half years, how many occasions have MP’s reported crimes against them to your force? For instance: stalking, cyber bullying, harassment, etc.
I appreciate that occupation (member of parliament, etc.) may not have been reported in every instance and that the true figure may be higher – however, I would like any information that you do hold.
I would like this information broken down by 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016 so far.
We have used a text search using the words ‘MP’ or ‘Member of Parliament’. From this search we have identified 6 crimes that have been reported by MPs or on their behalf. As you mention occupation is not always recorded therefore we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information.
Please find the breakdown by year below:
2014 – 1 report.
2015 – 4 reports.
2016 – 1 report.
FOI reference: 845/16.
