Answer for Knife Crime with Injury (2)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Please see below the requested Excel table. This table gives us the age of victims of all Knife crime with injury offences during the last 4 years. This table was created using the most recently available data.

Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary's (HMIC) Crime Data Integrity report of 2014 highlighted compliance concerns regarding the classification of crimes by police forces in England and Wales. For the MPS, the implementation of the HMIC recommendations has led to an additional recorded increase in violence with injury (which includes the majority of knife crime w/injury offences).  It is not possible to forecast the trend in the coming months, however, it is expected that the increase seen in recent months will subside.

Knife Crime w/Injury is any notifiable offence that involved the use of a knife where an injury occurred. This can range in terms of crime type and severity. For example, Knife crime w/injury can include offences within any classification (such as Violence against the person, sexual offences and robbery), yet predominantly these offences are classified within the Violence w/Injury grouping. The level of injury can vary from those relatively minor in nature, for example a small cut or laceration, to more substantial wounding.
