From the information collected centrally on recorded crime, it is not possible to identify recorded cases of domestic violence. Such offences are not specifically defined by law and details of the individual circumstances of offences are not collected.

The offence of trafficking for sexual exploitation was introduced by the Sexual Offences Act 2003 and was implemented in May 2004. Edmonton comes within the Enfield basic command unit and there were two offences of trafficking for sexual exploitation recorded by the police in Enfield in 2005-06.
