Dear Kent Police,

Could you please provide me with the total number of reported Islamophobic hate crimes for each year over the last six years? ( from 1st January 2013 to May 2019).

Could the data be broken down into each separate district. Thank you.

I look forward to hearing back from you.

Yours faithfully,

Amber Mehmood

response to your request, I enclose a sheet, which summarises your rights.

Dear Freedom of Information Kent,

I am writing this email to remind you that I have still not received a response from my freedom of information request from you yet. I was expecting a response by 11th July 2019 as this was 20 working days from the date i initially submitted my FOI request.

Is there a reason why i have not had a response yet?

Yours sincerely,

Amber Mehmood

Dear Ms Mehmood,

 

I write in relation to the Freedom of Information request you made to Kent
Police on 13^th June 2019 concerning Hate Crimes. Unfortunately, due to an
increase in workload there has been a delay in responding to some FOI
requests and for this I apologise.

 

We are working on progressing your request and will respond as soon as
possible.
