Hate Crime (3152/15)


Post April 2014, in order to be providing more accurate data we introduced a ‘hate strand’ marker, which can be added to crimes where homophobia, Islamophobia and anti-semitism are considered to be elements of the offence. Although the marker will have been used on the majority of hate crimes, it is not a compulsory marker. This means that not all offences will be captured. We can provide the number of offences where a ‘homophobic’, ‘religious – perceived judaism’ and a ‘religious – perceived Islam’ marker has been used. We can thenprovide information on the defendants ethnicity.


Please find attached our response (3152_Attachment). However, please find a key below that you will need to interpret the data.
