The Home Office publishes data on the number of persons convicted, following an arrest for a terrorism-related offence, in the quarterly ‘Operation of police powers under the Terrorism Act (TACT) 2000 and subsequent legislation’ statistical release. The number of people (to September of each year) convicted for terrorism related offences over the last five years are as follows:
