Criminal court statistics

National Statistics on cases in the magistrates’ courts and Crown Court and, from March 2017, includes language interpreter and translation services statistics.

These reports present the latest statistics on type and volume of cases that are received and processed through the criminal court system of England and Wales. The figures give a summary overview of the volume of cases dealt with by these courts over time, with statistics also broken down for the main types of case involved.

Also published are detailed breakdowns of the headline court caseload and timeliness statistics, broken down by court or Local Justice Area. More information can be found on the Open Justice website
