Child arrests in England and Wales 2014

This briefing presents an analysis of freedom of information data from 43 police services areas and the British Transport Police in England and Wales.

Data was provided on the number, age, gender and ethnicity of child arrests. The figures confirm the continued success of a long-running Howard League programme of work to keep as many children as possible out of the criminal justice system.
