Coronavirus (COVID-19): the policing response and what you need to know

Hate Crime by Ethnicity 2019-2020

Date of request: August 27, 2020
Reference: 875/20

Request

Is it possible to have an ethnic breakdown of hate crime victims this past year please?

Is it possible to know how many hate crimes have been recorded against Black-British people in Bristol this past year?

And also, is it possible to know what this figure is as a % of hate crimes recorded this past year?

I’d just like to request on this, also, if the figures could be as refined as possible it would be appreciated. I.e. as pinned down specific ethnicities as possible: Somali British, instead of the broad, all-encompassing Black-British.

For these same dates, is it possible to know the same statistics but for perpetrators of hate crime, please?

Response

Please find your data attached. This has been provided by officer defined ethnicity and perpetrator defined ethnicity.

The detail collected to respond specifically to your request is subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large scale recording system. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when interpreting those data.

Avon and Somerset Constabulary does not record the breakdown of hate crimes by ethnicity percentage. Therefore, the information has been provided for you to calculate this.
