I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the following information:
The number of recorded successful prosecutions where domestic (home) CCTV footage was used in evidence. This request is specific to domestic (private households) CCTV systems and not public space, commercial or other systems.
Please provide the information in the form a dataset (spreadsheet indication date of conviction and what crime it was related to – for instance, theft, ABH, arson etc)
The Office of the Police & Crime Commission for Cleveland does not hold recorded information on this subject.
However, s16 of the Act requires me to provide advice and assistance on how best you may find the information you seek. To that end, the information you are trying to seek may be held by Cleveland Police on their website.
