Provision of information held by Northumbria Police made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the 'Act')
As you may be aware the purpose of the Act is to allow a general right of access to information held at the time of a request, by a Public Authority (including the Police), subject to certain limitations and exemptions.
Can you please provide the details of the number of Domestic Abuse Victims reporting to Northumbria Police broken down as follows:
The period 1st January 2017 to 31st December 2017 inclusive by Age, Ethnic Origin and Gender and by Police Division
We have now had the opportunity to fully consider your request and I provide a response for your attention.
Following receipt of your request, searches were conducted with the Corporate Development Department of Northumbria Police. I can confirm that the information you have requested is held by Northumbria Police.
Domestic abuse crimes have been identified as those which have been created following a domestic abuse incident. The data included is a count of all victims of these crimes. Note that the same person may be counted more than once if they have been a victim of several domestic abuse crimes within the period. Data has been separated by area command, ethnic origin, gender and age of the victim.
With the above in mind, I am able to disclose the located information to you as attached.
