ANALYSIS OF THE ENTIRE DATABASE AFTER THE 6TH REPORT
When this year’s totals are added to last year’s tally the total number is 256 cases between 1901-2007 involving 608 British police officers.
There are 217 On Duty cases on the database involving a total of 564 British police officers.
There are 39 Off Duty cases on the database involving a total of 44 British police officers.
(NOTE: I do not claim to be a statistician so much of the following data is based on what interests me the most).
1. After six years of research 73% of the ‘on duty’ cases are multiple officer
2. The top three multiple officer cases are:
a. April 1984. Stanmore, Middlesex, near RAF Bentley Prior. Up to 20 officers
b. March 30-31 1993 South Wales, Devon and Cornwall involving 19 officers.
c. 28/08/77 Windermere, Cumbria involving 17 officers.
3. 19 ‘on duty’ cases involve 5 or more officers.
4. The five peak years for sightings are:
5. The county in England with the heaviest concentration of police UFO sightings is West Yorkshire with 30 cases recorded on the database. In joint second place are North Yorkshire and London with 14 cases each. Wales and Scotland have been dealt with collectively with 14 and 9 cases respectively.
6. The top five UFO Shapes are:
7. UFO Classification breakdown: Category – On Duty:
NL (NOCTURNAL LIGHT) – 183
DD (DAYLIGHT DISC) – 10
CE1 (CLOSE ENCOUNTER 1ST KIND) – 25
CE2 (CLOSE ENCOUNTER 2ND KIND) – 3
CE3 (CLOSE ENCOUNTER 3RD KIND) – 1
8. UFO Classification breakdown: Category – Off Duty:
NL (NOCTURNAL LIGHT) – 22
DD (DAYLIGHT DISC) – 4

9. There are 34 mulitple UFO cases.
10. There are 2 cases that involve USOs (Underwater Surface Object).
11. There are 6 cases that involve radar confirmation or radar visual.
12. UFO Characteristics: I intend to do more research in this area in the form of graphical charts/spreadsheets but already some interesting aspects stand out. For example when one examines the ‘On Duty’ CE1 (CLOSE ENCOUNTER 1ST KIND) of the 25 cases in this category, 15 display the UFO characteristic of being silent when being observed i.e. 60%.
13. UFO Shapes breakdown in CE1 (CLOSE ENCOUNTER OF 1ST KIND) category:
Fiery Cross 1
Shape change – Cigar/Sphere 1
14. Multple officer breakdown in CE1 (CLOSE ENCOUNTER 1ST KIND) category:
Of the 25 cases in this category 17 are mulitple police officer witness sightings i.e. 68%.
*Note – the UFO Classifications are based on Dr J Allen Hynek’s classification criteria in his book ‘The UFO Experience’ (1972). I have extended the range of CE1 cases from Hynek’s 150 metres (distance from the witness to the UFO) to
400 metres for the purpose of this analysis.
*EM = Electro Magnetic Effects
*INT = Interaction between UFO and observer
