Drugs Possession and Drugs Supply Offences and Arrests 2012 – 2016

Question

I would like to access the data per Lower Layer Super Output Area (LSOA) collected by Avon & Somerset Police within the Bristol Area regarding the following, in order of priority:

Drug specific:

  • Overall number of drug offences
  • Breakdown of offences between a) possession and b) intent to supply
  • Type of drugs per class
  • Size of seizure in weight and/or estimated street value

Individual information:

  • Age of the individual arrested Ethnic background or Nationality of individual

Please share this information for the past 5 years and also for 2006.

Clarification received:

Considering the LSOA level is not being recorded I would be grateful for the data to reflect the location of the police intervention with the most accurate geographical indicator available. 

I take notice that you make no comparisons of police beats, however, I am aware that the geographical coordinates are taken every time. In order of priority, if possible, I would like this geographical information to reflect either the 1) Ward, 2) latitude and longitude coordinates, 3) the general area of Bristol.
