Question for Home Office

UIN 222763, tabled on 29 January 2015

The Home Office does not publish crime statistics on a monthly level. The lowest level of detail available in the published figures is on a quarterly basis. These have been provided from April 2014 for Elmbridge and Surrey in the
accompanying table. Caution should be taken when comparing quarterly periods due to the seasonal nature of the data.

The Home Office collects police workforce statistics twice a year on a police force area basis. There were 1,938 full-time equivalent police officers employed by Surrey Police as at 31 March 2014 and 1,885 full-time equivalent
police officers as at 30 September 2014. The Home Office does not collect these statistics for Elmbridge or any area below police force level.

Total number of police-recorded offences, quarterly from April 2014, by CSP and PFA.
