Stalking, Harassment and Domestic Abuse (1442A/21)
I would like to know the following for the time period January 1, 2016 and September 30, 2021:
- Please provide any stalking and harassment related incidents recorded by their Home Office offence codes and outcome codes, broken down by victim ethnicity, victim gender, and the time taken to record the outcome (in days).
|Year||Offence Code||Outcome Code||Gender of victim||Ethnicity of victim||Time taken to record outcome (days)|
- Please provide the Home Office offence codes and outcome codes of incidents flagged as domestic violence or abuse related, broken down by the victim’s ethnicity and gender, as well as the time taken to record an outcome to the incident. (Please use the same format as above).
Please also include a summary of the offence codes and outcome codes used.
Please find attached our response. Please note we do not record how long it takes to record an outcome, therefore we are unable to answer this question.
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 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.
