Date Responded 22 August 2018

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:

 have looked at FOI 624/18 on the Northumbria Disclosure Log and would like to know if you could you please state the nationalities of those who have reported a hate crime to the police in the last three years? (2015/2016, 2016/2017, 2017/2018) 

In Response:

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 not held by Northumbria Police. 

We do not record the nationality for a person reporting a crime.  We only have a ‘self-classification’ for ethnicity, which we do not record as a matter of course as it is not mandatory, therefore, we cannot accurately answer your request.
