Details of anti Semitic incidents

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Essex Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Essex Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner,

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

Yours faithfully,
G Millward

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.

 

Kind regards

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
