Refugee crime statistics for Central District

The request was partially successful.

Dear Hong Kong Police Force Central District,

Can you please provide data on arrest statistics of refugees (non-refoulement claimants). Specifically I would like the most complete yearly statistics of refugees arrests from your district for every full year you have data going back to 2005, plus total arrest statistics from the same time period to put it into context. If you have a breakdown of prosecution and conviction rates that would be useful too.

On top of total numbers, if you have the nationalities of the refugees arrested please provide that information. I’m happy to take digital files if that’s easier, but please attach PDFs as I can't view information in tabular form in the email .

Yours faithfully,

Scott Edmunds

Dear Mr. Scott Edmunds,
          I refer to your letter dated 8 September 2016 requiring the
crime statistics of refugee (non-refoulement claimants) and the
acknowledgement that Central District had issued to you on 9 September
2016.  Your letter was then referred to this office on the same day.

2.        I am sorry to inform you that the Police do not maintain crime
statistics stated in your request.

3.         As far as we know you are asking for the similar figures from
several Police Regions / Divisions.  In order for us to provide meaningful
assistance to you, Crime Wing Headquarters would like to clarify if the
overall crime statistics, regardless of the suspects' identity, by Police
Region / District would serve your purpose.  As it takes times for the
Police to prepare for the figures with detailed breakdowns by Police
Region / District, your prompt reply is much appreciated.

4.        For enquiry, please contact me at 852-2860 8156.

Regards,
Ms Shirley HO
Crime Wing Access to Information Officer

Dear Shirley,

Thanks for getting back to me. If you don't have statistics for non-refoulement claimants, then do you have figures on recognicance or form 8 holders over the equivalent time period? If you have overall crime statistics, regardless of the suspects' identity, by Police
Region / District that would also be very useful.

Yours faithfully,

Scott Edmunds
