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.

You asked:

I would like to know how many incidents and offences involving the far-right have been recorded in your area since 2008. I would like this information to be broken down by year.

 

After we sought clarity as to the keywords to be searched for, you supplied the below.

Please can you include incidents and offences that relate to these groups:

- National Action

- Britannica Party

Britain First

- British Democratic Party

- British National Party (BNP)

- English Defence League (EDL)

- National Front

 

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 caveat should be noted when viewing our response

Incident description

We are only able to search the first three lines of the incident description.  It is possible that one of the keywords may feature later in the incident description but if so, that incident will not be captured in this dataset.

Crime search

As with any keyword search, the search will only return exact matches within the Crime MO. This does not account for differences in terminology and/or spelling used. Also, we cannot search the crime investigation screens/additional information screens, if the terms are not used within the MO the crime will not be identified.

With the above in mind please see the below.
