I asked the PSNI how many racially motivated crimes there were in N.I during 2013. I did this because I was curious and apparently I have a penchant for face-palming. The PSNI publish a yearly report on the figures but it’s only been sporadically reported on and I wanted all the numbers in a easily digestible chunk.
26 people had their lives threatened between 1st January and 20th November 2013 because of their race. See numbers below and the full FOI response here.
