To whom it may regard,

My name is Carly Roberts and I'm using a What Do They Know account, shared by Claire Wilde and Harriet Clugston.

I am writing to make an open government request for all the information to which I am entitled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

I would like data on the total number of domestic abuse-related offences recorded by the force between 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020, broken down by the victim’s ethnicity.

Please send me:

1). The number and type of crime outcomes recorded for domestic-abuse related offences*, broken down by sex and ethnicity of the victim, and the nature of the offence – eg psychological, physical, sexual or emotional. Please only include offences that have been assigned an outcome, and group them by the year the outcome was recorded rather than the year the crime took place.

2). Of the cases that resulted in a charge or summons in part 1 of this request (by year the outcome was recorded), please provide a breakdown of the sex and ethnicity of the suspect, whilst retaining the breakdown of the sex and ethnicity of the victim

3). The number of times a suspect was arrested in relation to a domestic abuse-related offence, broken down by the sex and ethnicity of the suspect and of the victim

4). The number of women who sought a domestic abuse protection order, by ethnicity

5). The number of women who were granted a domestic abuse protection order, by ethnicity

6). The number of men who sought a domestic abuse protection order, by ethnicity

7). The number of men who were granted a domestic abuse protection order, by ethnicity

Please provide the requested data in a spreadsheet format.

If this request is too wide or unclear, I would be grateful if you could contact me as I understand that under the Act, you are required to advise and assist requesters.

If any of this information is already in the public domain, please can you direct me to it, with page references and URLs if necessary.

Many thanks, Carly Roberts.

(currently 18 hours or £450), or if the request is otherwise manifestly

submitted at the same time, may make it necessary for Essex Police to
refuse the requests wholly or in part.  The exemption at Section 14 may be
engaged if the burden on the authority is increased through multiple
requests on differing subjects.

Thank you for your patience in regard to your initial request. We must
firstly apologise for the lack of updates from this department. The
department has struggled with resourcing and workload, therefore the level
of service provided has been below what is expected.

 

Thank you for your enquiry which has been logged under the above
reference.

 

Section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) places two duties
on public authorities.  Unless exemptions apply, the first duty at Section
1(1)(a) is to confirm or deny whether the information specified in a
request is held.  The second duty at Section 1(1)(b) is to disclose
information that has been confirmed as being held.  Where exemptions are
relied upon Section 17 of FOIA requires that we provide the applicant with
a notice which: a) states that fact b) specifies the exemption(s) in
question and c) states (if that would not otherwise be apparent) why the
exemption applies.

 

In respect of your enquiry:

 

I would like data on the total number of domestic abuse-related offences
recorded by the force between 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020, broken down
by the victim’s ethnicity.

Please send me:

1). The number and type of crime outcomes recorded for domestic-abuse
related offences*, broken down by sex and ethnicity of the victim, and the
nature of the offence – eg psychological, physical, sexual or emotional.
Please only include offences that have been assigned an outcome, and group
them by the year the outcome was recorded rather than the year the crime
took place.

2). Of the cases that resulted in a charge or summons in part 1 of this
request (by year the outcome was recorded), please provide a breakdown of
the sex and ethnicity of the suspect, whilst retaining the breakdown of
the sex and ethnicity of the victim

3). The number of times a suspect was arrested in relation to a domestic
abuse-related offence, broken down by the sex and ethnicity of the suspect
and of the victim

4). The number of women who sought a domestic abuse protection order, by
ethnicity

5). The number of women who were granted a domestic abuse protection
order, by ethnicity

6). The number of men who sought a domestic abuse protection order, by

Please provide the requested data in a spreadsheet format.

If this request is too wide or unclear, I would be grateful if you could
contact me as I understand that under the Act, you are required to advise
and assist requesters.

If any of this information is already in the public domain, please can you
direct me to it, with page references and URLs if necessary.

 

In respect of Sec 1(1)(a), Essex Police does hold information relating to
your request in respect of Question 1 2 and 3, and under Section 1(1)(b)
please see the below information .

 

The results and findings of the FOI 15780 Domestic Abuse Crime Data by
ethnicity from 2016 to 2020 are presented below. The results are also
attached in an Excel spreadsheet.

Key points to note:

All relevant crime outcomes for Domestic Abuse related Offences (whereby a
NC/11 Investigation was present) were gathered from January 2016 to
December 2020.

The crime outcome types have been broken down by the ethnicity and gender
(sex) of the victims or suspects where needed.

Outcome types 1 and 1A were used to filter out records where the
perpetrator had been charged or summoned for a domestic abuse related
offence.

The number of arrests for domestic abuse related offences have been
recorded from January 2016 to December 2020 and have also been presented
in a table.

Dates Period:

1^st January 2016 to 31^st December 2020

 

A total of 127,906 crime outcome decisions were made between 1^st January
2016 and 31^st December 2020 for domestic violence reports received by

Under the Freedom of Information Act we are required to reply within 20
working days. The Act does not specify a limit to the number of
information requests a public authority may receive or the number of
requests or questions an applicant may submit. However, there are
exemptions in the Act that can apply and these include where the cost of
complying with the request would extend beyond the reasonable cost limit,
(currently 18 hours or £450), or if the request is otherwise manifestly
unreasonable in its scope or nature.

Requests that ask a great many questions, or a number of detailed requests
submitted at the same time, may make it necessary for Essex Police to
refuse the requests wholly or in part. The exemption at Section 14 may be
engaged if the burden on the authority is increased through multiple
requests on differing subjects.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has responsibility for
providing oversight and guidance for the legislation and they have
produced advice for applicants on submitting effective requests. Further
information can be found on the Commissioner’s website at
[7]www.ico.gov.uk, specific information relating to submitting a request
can be found at:
[8]https://ico.org.uk/for-the-public/offici...

While we process your request, please take the time to consider the ICO’s
advice and whether you feel it may be beneficial to amend or refine your
request. Our team is happy to discuss your request with you and will be
able to provide advice as to what kind of information will be available
from Essex Police.

Although every effort will be made to ensure a response is provided within
statutory deadlines, due to current circumstances, delays may be
unavoidable. We apologise for any inconvenience and will endeavour to
process your request as quickly as is practicable.

Please ensure all future enquiries are sent to the
[9][Essex Police request email] mailbox.
