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:

How many crimes under so called revenge pornography laws (section 3 of the criminal justice and courts act) were recorded by your force, broken down by outcome category and age of victim at the time of reporting, in the financial years:

  1. 2015-16
  2. 2016-17
  3. 2017-18
  4. 2018-19

My preference would be to receive an exact age of victim in each case but if the numbers of cases your force has handled is low, and you consider this could identify the victim, please provide the victims' ages in the following bands:

0-10, 11-15, 16-20, 21-30, 31-40, 41-50, 51-60, 61-70, 71-80, 81-90, 91-100 etc.

In Response:

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, which has been presented in a way which avoids the use of exemptions being considered to withhold.
