1) Figures for some crime categories may have been inflated by some police forces implementing the principles of the National Crime Recording Standard before 1 April 2002.
2) The introduction of the NCRS in April 2002 means that data prior to this date are not directly comparable with later figures. See Box 2.1 for more details.
3) From 2005/06, 'threat or conspiracy to murder' offences are included within the 'other violence against the person' category.
4) Although firearms were involved in 60 homicides in 2010/11, in two cases the firearm was not the cause of death.
