Race and Religious Hate Crimes, Arrests and Convictions by Month Since March 2014

Question

Could I please request the number of race hate and religious hate crimes recorded by the police force for the period between 1st March 2014 and 30th July 2017. 

1) Please provide this information broken down by calendar month

2) For the above above information how many arrests and how many convictions were made?

Answer

Please see the number of race and religion motivated hate crimes in the table below. Please note that the ‘race’ and ‘religion’ breakdown total may be higher that the crime count as a crime can be flagged with more than one type of hate. E.g. both race and religion motivated.

Please see the tables below for the number of arrests and convictions for race and religion motivated hate crimes. We are unable to provide the number or arrests or convictions before August 2015 as due to a change in our recording systems we would be required to individually review each crime and any associated custody record to extract this information. This would then attract the section 12 cost of compliance exemption. In relation to conviction data, this is the information that we hold. Accurate and up to date conviction data is held by the courts as the convictions are issued by them.
