Data on breaches broken down by individual order is collated centrally only for the community punishment order, community rehabilitation order and community punishment and rehabilitation order. The percentage of offenders fully completing these orders, alongside percentages of offenders whose orders are terminated together with reason and sex is given in the following table. This information is contained in the offender management caseload statistics 2006.
