I am writing to request information under the Freedom of Information Act about Osman (threat to life) warnings issued to youths in your police force since 2008.

For the avoidance of doubt, I am only interested in offenders aged 10 to 17 inclusive at the time the Osman warnings were given. 

I would like to know for every financial year since 2008.


  1. a) how many youths were given Osman warnings in total
  2. b) how old they all were (eg one 10-year-old, 15 17-year-olds etc)


If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12, please provide advice and assistance, under the Section 16 obligations of the Act, as to how I can refine my request. 

If you can identify any ways that my request could be refined please provide further advice and assistance to indicate this.

If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact me via email or phone and I will be happy to clarify what I am asking for, my details are outlined below. I would like the information electronically, please.’
