Hate Crimes Against Chinese (Race/Ethnicity) Since 2012

Question

I am investigating into hate-crime against the Chinese population living in the UK. The hate crime data that the Home Office releases aggregates Chinese with “Other”, therefore it makes it difficult to ascertain a definite figure for just Chinese. Could I please be provided with the following information:

Can I receive the following information for the past 5 years (from 2012-201:

1. Hate-crime against Chinese (race/ethnicity) broken down into boroughs;

2. Hate-crime broken down into ethnicity/race (so a comparison can be made with Chinese);

3. Figures of police officers by ethnicity, with a clear figure of the percentage or number of Chinese police officers

4. Then provide figures on:

• The amount of Chinese hate crime reported from 2012-2017 (broken down by year);

• The amount of successful prosecutions of hate crime against Chinese from 2012-2017 (broken down by year).

Answer

With regards to question 3, please find attached breakdown of ethnicity with regards to the constabularies officers and staff. Please note that there is not a mandate for individual officers or staff to provide ethnicity details and not all do. Of those who have provided these details, one officer has recorded their ethnicity as Chinese.

The remainder of the information is in the tables below:
