Errata

Errata

A second errata was published on 13 May 2021 as a result of a change on page 80 of the PDF. The Handling offensive weapons row of Table 4 has been updated to reflect that 14 crimes of this type were recorded per 10,000 population in 2017-18, 16 were recorded per 10,000 population in 2018-19 and 18 were recorded per 10,000 population in 2019-20, rather than 34, 34 and 36 crimes of this type per 10,000 population for these years as was originally published. The HTML, PDF and Excel tables have been updated to reflect this change.

An errata was published on 3 November 2020 as a result of a change on page 57 of the PDF. The second paragraph in the Driving under the influence section was updated to reflect that 616 offences were recorded in 2019-20 under the new offences of driving or being in charge of a motor vehicle with concentration of a specified controlled drug above a specified limit, rather than 573 as was originally published. The HTML and PDF have been updated to reflect this change.
