|(1) These data are on the principal offence basis. (2) Every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete. However, it is important to note that these data have been extracted from large administrative data systems generated by the courts and police forces. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when those data are used.

The data provided in the above table are for reprimands and final warnings, as simple cautions can no longer be issued to people under 18. Source: RDS-OCJR, Ministry of Justice.|
