Enforcement of Revenge Porn Law

Question

I'm a journalist with ITV. Would you please supply me with figures relating to the enforcement of the law surrounding 'revenge porn' - that is the offence of  "sharing of private, sexual materials, either photos or videos, of another person without their consent and with the purpose of causing embarrassment or distress".

I would like the same information as detailed in the tables you supplied to a BBC FOI shown in the link below - but I would like the up to date figures for the entire year since the law's introduction - from April 2015 to and including April 2016.

As in the BBC FOI I would like figures relating to:

1. Date of offence and age and sex of the victim.

2. The platform used to publish the image or information - for example Facebook or Instagram.

3. What media was used - for example photo or video?

4. Any further information about the offence?

5. Was it an ex partner?

6. Outcome of the investigation.

Answer

You will see from the link you provided that Avon and Somerset Constabulary data is not included, this is due to us not providing information concerning this request. The provision of the information together for each case as you have asked would identify personal information. Albeit the BBC have presented them in a sanitised way.

 

Your request has been considered and therefore we have concluded that the sanitised data can be disclosed as per the BBC disclosure. We have not included those cases that are still ongoing.
