Dear Durham Constabulary,

I’m writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act to request statistics on the number of hate crimes reported to your Constabulary. I’m building a study which details the changes in hate-crime behaviour in the last 10 years across the UK.

I want to know these three things:

1. The total number of reported hate-crimes in your Constabulary each year from January 1st 2009 to November 31st 2019.

2. From those cases above, how many resulted in a conviction?

3. Out of these hate-crimes, do you have statistics on how many were incidents of racism? If so, can this figure be included for each month?

I understand this may be quite the task to put these figures together, I’m willing to accept a small but reasonable delay in getting the figures back.

Thank you for your time in reading, responding and hopefully delivering my request.

Yours faithfully,

Scott Robinson
