Hate Crime (816A/23)


Can you provide the annual data (from 2015 to 2022) for each of the following hate crime strands disaggregated by sex of the a) victim, and b) perpetrators: Race hate crime (broken down by ethnicity) & Religion hate crime (against Muslims).

Clarification received 24/05/2023:

Can you email me the data that is recorded as hate crime recorded as a crime and hate crime recorded as a non-crime too. If the data can be sent in two different docs one for hate crimes and the other hate crimes as a non-crime that would be very helpful.


Please find attached our response (816A_Attachment). Please also be advised that due to system/recording changes, table headings on the attached document will differ across the requested time period (i.e. 2019 – 2022 data has been extracted from our current system and 2015 – 2018 data has been extracted from our old system).

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.
