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

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 s14 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
[1]www.ico.gov.uk specific information relating to submitting a request
can be found at:
[2]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.

Dear G Millward, 

 

We acknowledge the receipt of your Freedom of Information (FOI) request
dated 18^th February 2018, which has been recorded in accordance with our
procedures.

 

The Office of the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner does not hold the
information you have requested, but it may be held by Essex Police.

 

FOI legislation allows for the transfer of FOI requests with the agreement
of the applicant but rather than delay your request, and create more work
for you in providing that agreement, we have transferred your request in
the expectation you will be happy for that transfer to take place in an
effort to answer your question(s).

 

We hope that is in accordance with your wishes but please let us know if
you do not wish that transfer to take place.

 

We hope this is helpful.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Office of the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex

Please accept our apologies in regard to the delay in responding to your
original request. This unit has had a substantial increase in FOI requests
which has resulted in a delay to the service provided from this unit.

Section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) places two duties
on public authorities. Unless exemptions apply, the first duty at
Sec1(1)(a) is to confirm or deny whether the information specified in a
request is held. The second duty at Sec1(1)(b) is to disclose information
that has been confirmed as being held. Where exemptions are relied upon
s17 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:

In relation to 2017 ( from 1st January 2017 to 31 December 2017), can you
confirm if in relation to incidents of racism or hate crime, separate
records are kept for incidents of anti Semitism.

If separate records of anti Semitism are kept, please confirm if the
definition of anti Semitism used in establishing if an incident is deemed
to be antisemitic is the International Holocaust Rememberance Alliance
(IHRA) definition.

If the IHRA definition is not used, please state what definition is used.

Please confirm how many incidents were treated as anti Semitic in 2017.

Please confirm if any of the incidents treated as anti Semitic were
referred to the Community Security Trust (CST).

If incidents were referred to CST, please confirm how many in total were
referred.

Was any officer from the Jewish Police Officers Association involved in
dealing with anti Semitic incidents, if so, on how many occasions did this
occur.

Finally, in relation to assaults considered to be antisemitic, were
incidents of verbal abuse or hate speech as a stand alone incident treated
as an assault

many were given tickets? Or whatever other type of punishment there was?

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

In respect of Sec 1(1)(a), Essex Police does hold information relating
to your request however the obligation of Sec 1(1)(b) cannot be met as
Essex Police does not hold all the information requested in a format that
allows it to be retrieved within the time and cost limits of FOI.

 

When responding to a request for information under the terms of the
Freedom of Information Act, a public authority is not obliged to provide
information if the authority estimates that the cost of the retrieval of
the information requested would be in excess of £450 (equivalent to 18
hours work). The costs criteria relates to a request in its entirety,
which means that if we cannot retrieve all of the information requested
within the costs limit, we are not obliged to retrieve any of the
information requested.

 

Section 12(1) of the Freedom of Information Act states that a public
authority is not obliged to:

“…comply with a request for information if the authority estimates that
the cost of complying with the request would exceed the appropriate
limit.”

 

The following will explain the difficulty in providing all the information
requested under Questions 5 and 6, each individual Athena record would
need to be examined to establish if a notification took place and if a
Jewish Officer dealt with a specific case note (please note there are
mechanisms for enhancing victim care such as the victims code and for hate
crime victims receive an enhanced service. Also as these mechanisms are
statutory in nature enforcing compliance is much easier) Therefore to
provide these details would require the manual examination of each
individual case and the collation and creation of data as results cannot
be processed by means of sorting or filtering data sources or running a
database query tool. There is no requirement under the act for this to be
carried out.

Consequently, and to this extent, Essex Police are exempt from the duty to
provide information you have requested under Questions 2 and 3 under the
provisions of section 12(1) of the FOI Act. Therefore, and in accordance
with section 17(1) of the Act, this communication must act as a refusal
notice to provide the information that could be interpreted as being
captured by this part of your request.

 

Although Section 12(1) excess cost removes the forces obligations under
the Freedom of Information Act, in an effort to assist the following
information has been provided

 

 

1) In relation to 2017 (from 1st January to 31 December 2017), can you
confirm if in relation to incidents of racism or hate crime, separate
records are kept for incidents of anti-Semitism?

Athena has been upgraded and can now record desegregated religious hate
crime including anti-Semitism.

2) If separate records of anti-Semitism are kept, please confirm if the
definition of anti-Semitism  used in establishing if an incident is deemed
to be anti-Semitic is the international Holocaust Remembrance Alliance
(IHRA) definition.

No because Essex police operate according to national operational guidance
which employs perception based recording. This is possibly more effective
as those targeted for abuse or harassment do not have to
provide evidence to fit any definition if they perceive they were
targeted because of any protected characteristic for example
Race/Religion* the force will record as a hate crime.

* it is settled case law that Jewish is a racial group and also a
religion so the force could record against either protected characteristic
or both dependent on the perceptions of the victim or/witnesses/third
parties or even the attending officers.

3) If the IHRA definition is not used, please state what definition is
used?

 See answer to question 2 above.

4) Please confirm how many incidents were treated as anti-Semitic in 2017?

See data set.

7) Finally, in relation to assaults considered to be anti-Semitic, were
incidents of verbal abuse or hate speech as a stand alone incident treated
as an assault?

The force will record the most appropriate offence dependent on
the individual circumstances of each incident in line with NCRS.  For
example it may be more appropriate to treat verbal abuse as an offence
under the public order act or as stalking or harassment as verbal abuse in
these circumstances will more likely lead to a more severe penalty on
conviction.

Essex Police trusts that the information provided is of assistance. Thank
you for your interest in Essex Police.
