Police recorded crime statistics on crime outcomes assigned by the police for the financial year ending 2014.
‘Crime outcomes in England and Wales 2013 to 2014’ presents statistics on crime outcomes assigned by the police. The bulletin is the first to be based on the new crime outcomes framework, which was first introduced in April 2013, with the full, broader framework subsequently introduced in April 2014. It replaces the previous ‘Crimes detected’ bulletins, which focuses on a narrower subset of ‘detections’.
The new crime outcomes framework was introduced following a public consultation in October 2012. The Government response to this consultation was ‘A Revised Framework For Recorded Crime Outcomes: Summary of consultation responses and conclusions’.
This bulletin is the first to focus on the new outcomes framework, and invited views from our users on our intentions for reporting on this framework in future. We therefore launched a consultation in section 3.6 of this bulletin which closed on 10 October 2014. The Home Office response was published on 26 February 2015, see ‘Home Office response to 2014 consultation with users of crime outcomes in England and Wales statistics’ above.
Longer term datasets contain police recorded crime for police force areas and local authorities.
