The Ministry of Justice's extract of the Police National Computer (PNC), which is used for analyses of offenders' criminal histories, only holds information on cautions and convictions given for recordable offences. The information held on MoJ's extract of the PNC will only allow a breakdown by police force area. To provide you with information at a lower level than this as requested, we would need to contact all courts and police forces in the South Staffordshire constituency, and in the Staffordshire and Wolverhampton areas which could be done only at a disproportionate cost.

The Ministry of Justice can provide information on repeat offenders only by police force area. Staffordshire police force area would include Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent local authorities, and the West Midlands police force area would include Birmingham, Coventry, Dudley, Sandwell, Solihull, Walsall and Wolverhampton local authorities.
