Supplementary notes

In 2015/16 the 'reason for arrest' offence groups were updated to match the groups used in crime statistics. Whilst this should not have an impact on the total number of arrests, or on the number of arrests broken down by age, ethnicity, and gender, data from 2015/16 broken down by offence group are not comparable with previous data. Though some offence groups have the same name as in previous years, the individual offences that make up that group may have changed, so these are also not comparable.
Two forces (Norfolk and Suffolk) could not supply 2015/16 data using the new 'reason for arrest' groups format. These forces supplied data using the old groups, and estimation methods were used to recategorise their data in to the new groups. Data broken down by age and gender are unaffected by this estimation i.e. actual data provided by the force are used.
Nottinghamshire could not supply 2015/16 data. Data have been estimated for this force for this year.
Lancashire could not supply 2016/17 data. Data have been estimated for this force for this year.
