Men (and women) behaving badly.

C/O Hansard:

Paul Holmes: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people have been issued with penalty notice disorders for being drunk and disorderly in each of the last three years.

The table breaks down the figures by police authority and by gender, and Lancashire's Finest were the keenest on dishing out PNDs last year at just shy of 5900. They were better behaved on the other side of the country, or the plod were less trigger happy, with all of 77 issued in Lincolnshire.

What is perhaps more interesting is the ratio of male to female penalty notices, with the ladies policed by the Northumbria Constabulary (includes Newcastle) the least genteel at a ratio of 3.3:1, compared to 5.2:1 nationally and 11.8:1 in Lincolnshire. Surrey ladies defy the stereotype at 3.7:1. Also nicked at a rate of less than or equal to one for every five men were the ladies of Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Merseyside and West Yorkshire. The Met's area lags the national average at 6.2:1
