Hate Crime (8361/19)


Could I please request the number of hate crimes recorded by the police force for the period between 23 June 2016 and 2 May 2019.

  1. Please breakdown the information by calendar month.
  2. For the above information how many arrests and convictions were made?
  3. I’d also like to know how many more specialist hate crime investigators the force has employed in the same time frame.


Please find attached (8361_19_attachment_01.pdf) and note with regard to question 2, arrest and conviction data are not fed back into our central crime recording system. Therefore, the total number of all outcomes for those offences at question 1 have instead been provided.

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.
