Date Responded 18 March 2020

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:

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?

Of which:

2  How many of the arrests of females for violence were for assault without injury?

3  How many of the arrests of females for violence were for assault without injury on a constable?

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.

In Response:

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.
