COVID-19 and the production of statistics
Unfortunately, the COVID-19 situation reduced the resource available for the processing of road traffic collision (RTC) data within the PSNI. As a result, Statistics Branch had no option but to delay the publication - ‘Police recorded injury road traffic collisions and casualties Northern Ireland, 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020’ - which was due to be released on Friday 29 May 2020, as well as the subsequent monthly update in June 2020. These will be published on 31 July 2020 and 28h August 2020 respectively.
Publication of Police Recorded Crime Exceptional Release
On the 6 May 2020 PSNI will publish an exceptional release presenting police recorded crime statistics at Northern Ireland level, covering the changes in crime levels experienced since Covid-19 lockdown measures were introduced on 23 March. This release will be published on a weekly basis until 25 June 2020 when the normal monthly publication schedule will resume.
Publication of Management Information on Domestic abuse calls received by police
On 13 May 2020 PSNI will publish an exceptional release presenting weekly management information on domestic abuse calls received by PSNI since the Covid-19 lockdown measures were introduced on 23 March. The management information contained in the release will not have undergone the rigorous quality assurance checks carried out prior to the publication of official statistics. This release will be separate to, and not a replacement for, the official statistics data series on Domestic Abuse Incidents and Crimes Recorded by the Police in Northern Ireland. The weekly publication of this release will be reviewed in mid-June.
The following statistics are published on this website on a regular basis, as outlined in the publication scheduled below.
