Racist incidents/racially motivated crime by ward level

John Chua made this Freedom of Information request to West Yorkshire Police as part of a batch sent to 29 authorities

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was successful.

Dear West Yorkshire Police,

Under the Freedom of Information Act I would like to request the following data:

1) A summary of the number of ‘racist incidents’ and ‘racially motivated hate crimes’ taking place in each of the wards inside your police force area (or, if that is not possible, another small geographic area, such as policing neighbourhood, postcode or census output area). I am seeking minimally yearly data for these categories from January 2012 to March 2017, though quarterly data are preferred if possible.

2) If information about the ethnicity of the victim is available, please provide a breakdown of the same information (number of ‘racist incidents’ and ‘racially motivated hate crimes’ by ward by quarter or year from January 2012 to March 2017) by ethnicity of the victim.

Please could this be provided in an excel format. Any other electronic format would also be welcomed if that is not possible.

Yours faithfully,
John Chua
