Reported Hate-Crime/Racist Crimes

We're waiting for Scott Robinson to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Cleveland Police,

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
