The government does not currently hold data on the behaviours of those who have not yet been convicted of a crime but are nevertheless awaiting trial.

As part of the Rape Review Action Plan, the government also set out its action plan to drive improvements across the system; ensuring that victims of rape do not have to wait years to see justice and that our streets are made safer as quickly as possible.
