Dear Central Scotland Police,

How many hate crimes have you investigated between October 2009 and
October 2010?(If you don't have stats between that period yet,
could you please give me the most recent yearly statistics
available)

Could you give me a breakdown on how many of those were racist,
sectarian, homophobic etc?

Yours faithfully,

Ben Archibald
