REQUEST UNDER THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 Ref No: FOI2019/02961

I write in connection with your request for information received on 2nd May. I note you seek access to the following information:

Could I please request the number of hate crimes recorded by the police force for the period between 23 June 2016 and 2 May 2019.

1.) Please breakdown the information by calendar month

2.) For the above information how many arrests and convictions were made? I understand you do not have conviction data so could you please substitute this with people proceeded against (PPA) information. I'd also like to know how many more specialist hate crime investigators the force has employed in the same time frame.

I am required by the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (The Act) to handle all requests in a manner that is blind to the identity of the requestor. Any information released in response to a request is regarded as being published and therefore, in the public domain without caveat.
