Question

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, please can you tell me how many cases you have dealt with in recent years involving people who have entered the UK illegally, either by boat, ferry, lorry or train? I appreciate that such cases are handed on to Border Force to deal with and that in many cases you will not make any arrests and may not even detain people. Therefore if possible, please could you state how many INDIVIDUALS your force has passed on to immigration enforcement (ie Border Force) in each of the past three years (2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16). If this is not possible using your databases, please state how many TIMES your force has passed people on to immigration enforcement (ie Border Force) in each of the past three years (2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16). If that is not possible, please simply state how many people you have dealt with / detained / arrested on suspicion of entering the UK without leave) in each of the past three years (2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16).
