Whilst crime is falling, more offenders are going to prison and for longer. In 2013, for the first time in the past decade, immediate custody was the most common disposal given for indictable offences. It is also important to note that more sexual offences have been dealt with this year as more victims come forward for historical crimes and because of generally increased reporting.

The number of offenders found guilty at all courts, by age group, offence type and Police force area, in England and Wales from 2010 to 2013 (the latest data available) can be viewed in the table.

Data by police force has been provided as we are not able to group results from the Crown Court by local criminal justice board.

Court proceeding data for calendar year 2014 is planned for publication in May 2015.
