Dear Mr Wesbter,

Thank you for your request for information received by West Yorkshire
Police.

 

Please provide a list of all racist attacks recorded in the different
areas of West Yorkshire between 1990 and 2017.

 

Please provide them according to the ethnicity of the victim(s) and
perpetrator(s), e.g. white on Asian, black on white, Asian on black etc.

 

I would like to clarify the following:

 

For the term ‘racist attacks’ - does that just refer to violent crime
offences? i.e. not criminal damage etc.

 

In addition, because of the time scale of the request, the crime
definitions have changed, as has the WYP recording system.  Therefore, if
you require all racist violent crimes could you confirm if you are happy
for us to search as suggested below:

 

·         Racially or religiously aggravated assault with injury

·         Racially or religiously aggravated assault without injury

·         Any other violent crime that has the RACE or RELIGIOUS hate
crime flag, this will pick up the earlier offences before the above crime
definitions were introduced.

Please note that your request will be put on hold, until we receive a
response from you. If you do not respond to this letter within 20 working
days, your request will be withdrawn.

 

 

Kind Regards

 

Kirsti Kaye
