SYP Response: 

I approached our Crime Management System (CMS) Analyst for assistance with your request. The CMS system is used to record complaints or allegations of those matters, which the Home Office specify should be recorded as ‘crimes’. She conducted a search of the system using the criteria above and provided the enclosed data in response to each question. Please note that we have taken question 5 to mean ‘outcomes’ of each offence
