The arrests collection held by the Home Office covers arrests for recorded crime (notifiable offences) only, broken down at a main offence group level, covering categories such as violence against the person and robbery.

The offence of forgery of passports and setting off fireworks is not a notifiable offence and does not form part of this collection.
