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.
1 In the year ending 31 March 2019 how many arrests of females were made by your police force for offences of violence against the person?
2 How many of the arrests of females for violence were for assault without injury?

Please break down the figures by ethnicity. (eg White -300 arrests; Black -100 arrests; Asian -50 arrests; other -20 arrests; unknown or unrecorded -15 arrests.
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.
Please see the attached document which should satisfy your queries. However, the following should be noted:
- "Assault without injury" and "Assault without injury on a constable" are mutually exclusive and therefore there is no crossover in the response data for Q2 and Q3.
- Should someone have been arrested multiple times in the time period, they have been counted that many times.
