Please can you separate by financial year. 

Please can you separate by Tinder, Grindr and Facebook 

Answer

Please find the information below. We have retrieved the information by conducting a word search in the modus operandi.

I have included the information retrieved from a word search we undertook for ‘social media’ also, as I think looking at your original request, you may find this useful.

This will not include all named social media apps but I have listed is separately so that you can disregard this if not helpful to you.

Please note that if a crime matches more than one it type, it will be counted in each column.

We have separated the results so that you can use either crime alone or add in the incidents (recordable).
