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 wish to know details of all people who have been arrested for hate crime offences over the past five years.
Providing the following by each financial year (2013-14, 14-15, 15-16, 16-17, 17-18) can you list first :
- the arrested person's age
- then their gender
- the type of hate crime (race, religion, disability etc.)
- whether they were charged
- and, only if this is possible, any details you have available on the crime itself; whether online/in person, verbal / physical etc.
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.
I am able to disclose the located information to you as follows.
To avoid your full request being refused due to Section 12 being applicable for time/costs considerations, we have discounted point 5 as per your instruction.
The remainder of your request is as attached.
