Can you please provide the details of the number of Domestic Abuse Victims reporting to your Police Authority broken down as follows:
The period 1st January 2016 to 31st December 2016 inclusive by Age, Ethnic Origin and Gender
For ease of reference, please incorporate a summary total by Age, Ethnic Origin and Gender both Force Wide and by Police Division
Please find our response in the attached spreadsheet. This provides the number of victims of reported crimes where the domestic flag has been applied (victims age is 16 or over). The totals for the count of victims by age may be greater than the count by gender or ethnicity as in a calendar year a victim may have reported domestic abuse both before and after their birthday, and may therefore appear in more than one age category.
For clarity these are reports to Avon and Somerset Constabulary and not to the Police Authority.
