Supplementary notes

* Up until April 1, 2012, the offence type 'cruelty to children/young persons' was divided into the following seperate offences:
- Cruelty to and neglect of children
- Abandoning a child under the age of two years
The figures shown here from 2002/2003 to 2011/2012 are a sum of these two offences, after which they were officially combined and reclassified as 'cruelty to children/young persons'.
