Anti – Semitism (4017/16)

Request

1. Does West Midlands Police currently have a distinct flag in its Crime Management System for antisemitic crime, as opposed to other types of hate crime?

2. If West Midlands Police does flag antisemitic crimes separately, does it flag antisemitic incidents as well as crimes?

3. If West Midlands Police does flag antisemitic crimes separately, what guidance or definition if antisemitism is provided to officers in order for them to determine whether to apply the flag?

4. If West Midlands Police does flag antisemitic crimes separately, does the flag apply equally to antisemitic crime that is racially motivated as well as religiously motivated (it is settled law that for legal purposes Jews belong to a race as well as a religion)?

5. If West Midlands Police does NOT flag antisemitic crimes separately, what means are used to track antisemitic crime, if any?
