Revenge Porn 955A/21


  • How many cases of revenge porn have been reported to you since October 2014?
  • How many of those cases remain unresolved?
  • How many cases were dropped by the accuser?
  • How many cases have been reported since 23 March 2020?


Please find attached (955A_21 attachment) our response.

Section 33 of the Criminal Justice and Courts Act 2015 creates the offence of disclosing private sexual photographs and films with intent to cause distress, commonly referred to as ‘revenge porn’. As such, we can only provide details on reports of ‘revenge porn’ from April 2015.

Unfortunately, due to a major change in West Midlands Police recording systems, the information that you have requested after 7th April 2021 cannot be retrieved. Therefore we are unable to provide the information for this part of your request.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience that this may cause.
