The Home Office does not hold information on the use of fixed penalty notices (FPNs) in each local authority area.

The Department manages the PentiP system that police forces use to record offences committed where the offence would be suitable for disposal via FPN. Whilst the system provides an opportunity for a local authority area to be recorded, this is not mandatory, so it is unlikely that a full national breakdown is held.
