It is not possible to provide the number of prosecutions for alcohol consumption in designated public places made by each police force. The Ministry of Justice does not hold information about prosecutions brought by individual police forces. Published prosecution breakdowns by location are based only on where defendants were dealt with in court.

The number of prosecutions for alcohol consumption in designated public places is available for each year between 2013 and 2017 in the Experimental statistics: Principal offence proceedings and outcomes by Home Office offence code data tool (offence code 14011).
