The number of individuals currently under investigation for criminal acts is a matter for the police and as such, the Government can not comment on current investigations. Numbers of individuals suspected of involvement in acts of terrorism or criminal matters, arrested and then formally charged with terrorism-related offences or other criminal offences is recorded and collated in the Home Office Quarterly Statistical Bulletin (last published 04 December 2014)
