Revenge Porn (6174/19)

Request

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.

Response

Please find attached (6174_19_attachment_01.pdf).

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.

If you decide to write an article / use the enclosed data we would ask you to take into consideration the factors highlighted in this document so as to not mislead members of the public or official bodies, or misrepresent the relevance of the whole or any part of this disclosed material.
