The Crime Statistics Agency (CSA) has today released three 'In Fact' research papers on alleged offending by 10-13 year olds recorded by police between July 2012 and June 2022.
The research shows 10 to 13 year old alleged offenders were associated with a very small minority (1%) of all alleged offender incidents, and the number of unique 10 to 13 year old alleged offenders has decreased over time.
