Cautions Issued in 2015/16, 2016/17

Question

1.) In the financial years 2015-16 and 2016-17, how many cautions were issued by your force? Please break down by year.

2.) Broken down for each year, above please provide a full list of offences that cautions were used for.

3.) In this period, what is the highest number of cautions that one individual has received? If possible, please list the offences.

Answer

Q1 & Q2: Please see the number of cautions issued in the last two financial years, broken down by crime type in the table below. Due to a change in our recording system we are unable to provide information prior to November 2015, as to do so would require a manual review of all custody records which would attract the section 12 cost of compliance exemption.
