2) Of the recorded crimes referenced in Q1, how many resulted in a charge or summons for the offender? Please break the answer down by year and class.


Please note that from 2016 Burglary is no longer categorised as ‘dwelling’ and ‘non dwelling.’

In relation to ‘other sexual offences’, this is not a specific category, therefore sexual offences have been provided and this category excludes rape as this has been requested and supplied separately. 

The charges are shown for the crimes in the year that the offence was recorded. I am unable to provide the charges prior to 2016 as due to a change in our recording systems (and at this time to accurately provide the figures) we would need to undertake a manual review of all custody records which would attract the section 12 cost of compliance exemption.

Please find the information attached.

FOI reference: 1266/17.

Date of request: 16.10.17.
