Arrests for children aged 12 and under (1474A/23)


A list of arrests for children aged 12 and under since the start of 2023 to now.

I would like details to include: their age, the offence they were arrested for, the outcome of their case (were they charged and convicted? released under investigation, no further action etc)

and the area they were arrested (town/city/postcode etc).


Please note that these data should be interpreted with caution.


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 a number of data sources used by forces for police purposes. The detail collected to respond specifically to your request is subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large scale recording system. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when interpreting those data.


The figures provided therefore are our best interpretation of relevance of data to your request, but you should be aware that the collation of figures for ad hoc requests may have limitations and this should be taken into account when those data are used.
