Data released under a Freedom of Information Act request showed that between January 1 and December 31, 2012, there were 1674 complaints logged by police, about one for every 50 people living in the district.

According to the figures, March was a particularly troublesome year for Cambridgeshire police, with 199 incidents recorded.
