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. In the last two calendar years (2016 and 2017 Jan-Dec) how many persons have reported being a victim of revenge porn? By revenge porn, I refer to ‘the distribution of a private sexual image of someone without their consent and with the intention of causing them distress.' 

Please break down by year.

 2. For each alleged victim who reported revenge porn, please state their occupation (I realise that not every case will have a reported occupation, so this request refers to those which did include an occupation on the report).

3. For each alleged victim, please break down by age at the time of the reported offence (if you only have the age they were when they made the report to the police, that will suffice).

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 held by Northumbria Police.

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

 Data was collated through a search of all victims where the home office code of the crime is 008/71 Disclose private sexual photographs and films with intent to cause distress.

 Each record was reviewed to establish the occupation of the victim. This is provided how it is recorded on the crime, ie what the victim has advised the police as their occupation .

Note in most records the occupation field has not been completed.

The age provided is the age of the victim at the time of the offence.

 The information has been provided in a way which avoids exemptions being applied to withhold.

With the above in mind please see the attached.
