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.The number religious hate crimes recorded by police in the past three financial years (2017/18, 2016/17, 2015/16), broken down by type of religion..

Perceived religion of the victim          

Buddhist                                 

Christian                                 

Hindu                          

Jewish                        

Muslim                        

Sikh                            

Other                          

No religion                              

Unknown                                

2.The outcome of the crime for Jewish hate crimes specifically - eg arrest, charge, warning, in the financial year 2017/18

In Response:

The data has been taken from the crime table in the central database using the faith hate flag to identify those crimes specific to this request.

It should be noted that the religion that the faith hate relates to has only been consistently completed as a field from April 2017 which accounts for the faith hate crimes before that date that have 'unknown' in the religion field.

With the above noted I am able to disclose the located information to you as follows.

Due to the different methods of recording information across 43 forces, a specific response from one constabulary should not be seen as an indication of what information could be supplied (within cost) by another. Systems used for recording these figures are not generic, nor are the procedures used locally in capturing the data. For this reason responses between forces may differ, and should not be used for comparative purposes.
