Dear Greater Manchester Police and Crime Commissioner,
I would like to obtain the number of racist allegations towards GM Police officers yearly, from May 1 2003 to May 1 2013.
This includes allegations of harassment and similar based on race on religion from civilians against the police.
Also, the percentage of the number of allegations for each year - that there has been a disciplinary towards an officer i.e out of the allegations - how many disciplinary actions per year.
Finally, out of the allegations the number or percentage of civilians divided by ethnicity - i.e. how many allegations were from african background, indian, pakistani, etc if recorded.
Mr N Saeed
