(1) Depositing, causing the deposition or permitting the deposition, treating, keeping or disposing of controlled and special and ‘non special’ waste in or on land without a licence under the Environmental Protection Act 1990Sec.33(8). (2) Dogs (fouling of Land) Act 1996 offences. (3) Offence under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 S.87. (4) Staffordshire Police Force were only able to submit sample data for persons proceeded against and convicted in the magistrates' courts for the year 2000. Although sufficient to estimate higher orders of data, these data are not robust enough at a detailed level and have been excluded from the table. Notes: 1. These data are provided on an all offence basis 2. Every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete. However, it is important to note that these data have been extracted from large administrative data systems generated by the courts and police forces. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when those data are used.
