Dear Immigration Department,

I am writing to make a data access request about the gender of detainees at Castle Peak Bay Immigration Centre. May I know, in each of the years between 2018-20:

a) the detainee population on 31 December of each year broken down according to gender (men and women)

If a CSV or Excel format is possible, I would greatly appreciate it. Otherwise PDF or similar would be fine as well.

Yours faithfully,

Surabhi Chopra
