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. Please could you reveal how many crime reports of "revenge porn" or "image based sexual abuse" or "intimate image abuse" (distributing private sexual image of someone without their consent and with the intention of causing them distress) have been made since the 23rd March 2020. Please could you break down the numbers by weekly periods, if possible.
  2. Please could you reveal how many people have been charged with the offence of "Revenge Porn" since the 23rd March 2020. Please break down this figure to show how many people received cautions.
  3. Please could you break down the victims of "revenge porn" since the 23rd March 2020 by gender and into the following age groups 0-9, 10-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60+.
  4. Please could you provide how many crime reports of "revenge porn" or "image based sexual abuse" or "intimate image abuse" (distributing private sexual image of someone without their consent and with the intention of causing them distress) have been made in the same complete period as you are able provide for (1) for the years 2019, 2018 and 2017. Please could you break down the victims of "revenge porn" during these periods by gender and into the following age groups 0-9, 10-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60+.
  5. Please could you provide how many crime reports of "revenge porn" or "image based sexual abuse" or "intimate image abuse" (distributing private sexual image of someone without their consent and with the intention of causing them distress) have been made in the last 5 years, broken down by year.

 

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.

All data relates to HO code 008/71 - Disclose private sexual photographs and films with intent to cause distress.

You asked 'how many people have been charged with the offence of "Revenge Porn" since the 23rd March 2020. Please break down this figure to show how many people received cautions.'  If the person was charged, it is unlikely that they would go on to be cautioned as this is a lesser penalty than a charge.

All data within this FOI relate to HO code 008/71 - 'Disclose private sexual photographs and films with intent to cause distress.'
