2016 Disclosures

How many police vehicles have been involved in traffic collisions over the last three financial years? Please break down by 2012-13, 2013-14, and 2014-15.

Please also break down by: i) how many of these incidents occurred during emergency calls, and how many did not. ii) how many injuries and fatalities were caused, and whether these were police officers, or members of the public iii) the financial cost of repair to vehicles, and whether the vehicle was written off

The information I wish to receive also relates to incidents where one of your vehicles was involved in a collision where the vehicle was not damaged (but, for instance, where someone may have been injured, or another vehicle or property was damaged).

To add - by 'collisions' - I mean bumps and scrapes with objects and people, as well as other vehicles.
