We all live and work in communities that are affected by crime. Understanding youth justice and youth crime patterns is therefore important to everyone. Our survey of communities and young people in 2015 found that many people misunderstand youth crime trends, but also that many people desired to have access to accurate and useful information about youth crime, especially in their local area. This paper draws together the current key published national statistics into one place. The Centre for Youth & Criminal Justice will be working with our partners and consulting with stakeholders to continue to bring you the most up to date statistics available.
