Domestic violence (911A/22)
I would like to know the number of domestic violence incidents reported in the last 12 months (01/07/2021 to 01/07/2022). This can include reports that were retracted and incomplete.
The term ‘domestic violence’ can include any situation that reported any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive, threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those aged 16 or over who are, or have been, intimate partners or family members regardless of gender or sexuality.
I would also like this information to explain the following:
- The month in which it was reported
- The age and gender of who it was reported by
- The outcome of the report
Please find enclosed our response.
Please note that an incident is created from an initial report. As a result of the incident a crime is recorded. The crime is where the ages, genders, outcomes, are recorded. These details are not recorded on an incident. Therefore this response is based on reported crimes from incidents reported.
The total amount of crimes reported per month. Please note that this is when the crimes were reported, therefore some of these crimes may be historical reports.
This the is age / gender breakdown. Please note that gender is recorded as in the highlighted boxes below, some of which have not been recorded as a gender but as unknown / – / indeterminate.
|Age & Recorded Gender||Total|
Below are the outcome codes, a full list of the outcome codes is also attached.
Please note that these data should be interpreted with caution. Comparing numbers of incidents/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 considered 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 considered 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.
