Request

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, I am seeking the following piece of information in relation to public order offences committed in your constabulary over the past three years.

 

In your constabulary, between January 2012 and January 2015, I would like to how many members of the public have committed racially or religiously aggravated public fear, alarm or distress.

 

On the Home Office Counting Rules for Recorded Crime, the code for this criminal offence is 9B. (Click here to see the full Home Office document.) I would like this information on a year-by-year basis.

Please note that these data should be interpreted with caution. Comparing numbers of crimes can be misleading and does not necessarily indicate the likelihood of someone being a victim of crime. In addition, the number of incidents/crimes recorded in an area over a period of time can be influenced by a number of factors. Consequently statistics on incidents/crimes for one period may not necessarily be a good indicator of future incidents in that area.

 

Every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete. However, it is important to note that these data have been extracted from a number of data sources used by forces for police purposes. The detail collected to respond specifically to your request is subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large scale recording system. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when interpreting those data.

 

The figures provided therefore are our best interpretation of relevance of data to your request, but you should be aware that the collation of figures for ad hoc requests may have limitations and this should be taken into account when those data are used.
