Arrests for Soliciting in the Last 5 Years

Question

How many arrests were performed by your authority under the Street Offences Act, 1959, for soliciting, broken down by a) age at time of arrest, b) sex, and c) ethnicity, in each of the last five full years for which records are available.

Answer

Please find the information requested below. No arrests were made in 2012, 2014, or 2015 and these figures do not include arrests for loitering under the Street Offences Act 1959 as this was not requested. It may be helpful to explain that the number of arrests each year is low as individuals are often arrested for other offences under the Sexual Offences Act 2003.
