Hate crime statistics (FOI)Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 07 January 2022.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
Please could you release the number of hate crimes that were reported in 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 - breaking down the numbers per year.
Please can you also specify how many were related to racism and how many were related to sexuality in each of the years.
Number of hate crimes recorded:
¹ For the purpose of this disclosure, sexuality includes incidents of homophobia or transphobia. A previously released Freedom of Information response provides data specific to incidents of transphobia and is available at: Reported hate crimes (FOI)
² One incident involved both an element of racism and homophobia. This explains why the total number of hate crimes remain at 29 rather than 30.
