8. Between April 1st and July 1st 2020 how many FEMALE arrests were made on suspicion of domestic abuse of a FEMALE?

In Response:

Following receipt of your request, searches were conducted within Northumbria Police. I can confirm that the information you have requested is held by Northumbria Police.

The below should be noted when reviewing the information provided:
- "Reported by" has been taken to relate to "being the victim of"
- The counts provided refer to cases wherein any of the parties involved were male or female; this means that some crimes may have been included on multiple counts (eg, if a crime had both a male and female offender, along with a female victim, it would be included in both 3 and 4 - as such the counts provided here do refer to a count of events, rather than individuals.
- This information has been based on a count of crimes with the DV flag, rather than incidents, as we typically do not hold personal data for incidents.

With all the above noted I can advise the below.

1. 885
2. 506
3. 4089
4. 474
5. 1796
6. 250
7. 178
8. 173
