Dear West Yorkshire Police,

In your response, the figures dont add up.

For example, the number of rapes submitted where 43 and the number
of sexual assaults submited was 54. Yet when you detailed the
ethnicity of the offenders the number totaled 44 convicted rapists.

Then where you detailed the ethnicity of the victims, the numbers
where a total of 124 victims of rape and 179 victims of sexual
assault.

I fail to understand how 44 rapists + 124 victims can equal 43
cases of rape. Nor can i work out how 179 victims of sexual assault
+ 54 attackers can result in 54 cases.

Can you please explain why the figures dont agree with each other.

Yours faithfully,

Joe Uttley

Dear Mr Uttley,

Further to your correspondence received by our office on the 22nd June 2011, I apologise if the

original response we sent out to you was unclear.

You mention that you are confused as to why there were 43 rapes detected in 2010, but there werre

44 recorded offenders. As noted on your response 'one crime may have been commited by multiple

offenders of different ethnicity'. It may be the case that of the 43 detected rapes, one of the rapes

had two offenders linked to it, which would result in their be 44 offenders recorded.

Further to this, in your last question you asked, for the females who had been raped or sexually

assaulted in the Bradford District in 2010, how many of these females were from a White British

ethnic background.

The reason why the number of recorded victims is significantly higher is because not all incidents of

rape and sexual assault have yet been detected and so they will not have been included in the

answer to question 1 or 2.

I hope this further information is useful to you, if you would still like an internal review to be carried

out please can you let us know.

Many thanks and kind regards,

Bronwen Salmon
