Dear Cumbria Constabulary,

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act.

I would like you to provide me with the following information:

- Hate crimes and incidents recorded. For each, the total number and the breakdown by monitored strand (race, religion, sexual orientation, disability and transgender, or other classification available) and by offence type (violence against the person, public order offences, criminal damage and arson…, or other classification available), for each month of the calendar years 2015, 2016 and 2017.

- Hate crimes and incidents flagged as online crime recorded. For each, the total number and the breakdown by monitored strand (race, religion, sexual orientation, disability and transgender, or other classification available) and by offence type (violence against the person, public order offences, criminal damage and arson…, or other classification available), for each month of the calendar years 2015, 2016 and 2017.

- In the cases classified as religious hate crime, the breakdown by the perceived (by the offender) religion (or belief or faith) of the victim.

- The date since when the online crime flag is being used by this police force.

I would like to receive that information in an electronic format, preferably in .xlsx or .csv.

If the information requested is not clear enough or if the cost of compliance exceeds the appropriate limit, I would appreciate your assistance in rewriting or narrowing down my search terms.

Yours faithfully,

Victòria Oliveres

Dear Cumbria Constabulary,

I would like to clarify that by "Hate crimes and incidents flagged as online crime recorded" I mean crimes which have occurred online (cyber crime), no matter if they have later been reported online or in other ways.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Emma Glendinning,

On question 2 of the FOI request FOI/268/18 I asked for hate crimes broken down by monitored strand (race, religion, sexual orientation, disability and transgender, or other classification available) for each month of the calendar years 2015, 2016 and 2017.

Can this breakdown be provided?

Yours sincerely,

Victòria Oliveres

Dear Emma,

Thanks for getting back to me. I still have one more question: can it be an error that there are the same number of reported online hate crimes flagged as homophobic as transphobic every month? It seems data may have been doubled.

Yours sincerely,

Victòria Oliveres

Glendinning, Emma, Cumbria Constabulary
