Racist incidents/racially motivated crime by ward level

M Westcott made this Freedom of Information request to West Yorkshire Police

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was successful.

Dear West Yorkshire Police,

Please could you provide a summary by year of the number of ‘racist incidents’ and ‘racially motivated hate crimes’ taking place in each of the ward/policing neighbourhoods inside your police force area (or, if that is not possible, another small geographic area,
such as postcode or census output area). I would like the information on the finest geographic level that you can provide.

If information about the ethnicity of the victim is available, please provide the same information (number of ‘racist incidents’ and ‘racially motivated hate crimes’ by geographic area by year) limited to cases where the at least one of the victims' ethnicities
is recorded as black/afro-carribean.

Please provide information for as many years as possible, ideally at least from 2010 onwards but preferably back further!

Yours faithfully,

M Westcott
