The Crime and Policing Analysis Unit (CPAU) in the Home Office collect information on the number of notifiable offences that have been reported to and recorded by the police. CPAU have also collected information on whether an offence was domestic abuse-related since April 2015.

This information is published by the Office for National Statistics in their quarterly statistical bulletin ‘Crime in England and Wales’. The most recently published data for all notifiable offences can be found in Appendix Table A4 available here: https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/crimeandjustice/bulletins/crimeinenglandandwales/yearendingdecember2017/relateddata

Information on domestic abuse-related offences for the year ending December 2017 can be found in Table F5 in the ‘Other related tables’ from the same link. Data for the previous year can be found in the December 2016 release.
