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.
I would like you to provide me with the following information:
- Hate crimes and incidents recorded. For each, the total number and the breakdown by monitored strand (race, religion, sexual orientation, disability, and transgender, or other classification available) for each month of the calendar years 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019.
We have now had the opportunity to fully consider your request and I provide a response for your attention.
As advised earlier this request has been aggregated with your previous request (FOI 1420/19) with regards to time constraints under the Act, as they refer to the same subject area – Hate Crimes.
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.
I am able to disclose the located information to you as follows.
Please see the attached spreadsheet which should satisfy your request.
