In relation to 2017 ( from 1st January 2017 to 31 December 2017), can you confirm if in relation to incidents of racism or hate crime, separate records are kept for incidents of anti Semitism.
If separate records of anti Semitism are kept, please confirm if the definition of anti Semitism used in establishing if an incident is deemed to be antisemitic is the International Holocaust Rememberance Alliance (IHRA) definition.
If the IHRA definition is not used, please state what definition is used.
Please confirm how many incidents were treated as anti Semitic in 2017.
Please confirm if any of the incidents treated as anti Semitic were referred to the Community Security Trust (CST).
If incidents were referred to CST, please confirm how many in total were referred.
Was any officer from the Jewish Police Officers Association involved in dealing with anti Semitic incidents, if so, on how many occasions did this occur.
Finally, in relation to assaults considered to be antisemitic, were incidents of verbal abuse or hate speech as a stand alone incident treated as an assault.
The Office of the Police & Crime Commission for Cleveland holds no recorded information on this subject.
However s16 of the Act requires me to provide advice and assistance on how best you may find the information you seek. To that end the information you are trying to find may be held by Cleveland Police.
