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. Could I please request the number of hate crimes recorded by the police force for the period between 23 June 2016 and 2 May 2019. Please breakdown the information by calendar month

2.For the above information how many arrests and convictions were made?

I understand you do not have conviction data so could you please substitute this with people proceeded against (PPA) information.

3.I'd also like to know how many  specialist hate crime investigators the force has employed in each of those years

In Response:

Points 1 and 2:

The data has been taken from the central database using the crime and arrest tables.  Crimes were included if they had a flag for any of the following:

Racial

Homophobic

Transphobic

Disability Hate

Faith Hate
