Answer for Terrorism Related Offences

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The data below shows the number of terrorism related arrests made by MPS officers over the last four years. Not all of these arrests took place in London as MPS officers may have made arrests in other regions. However, it is not possible to extract those arrests that took place in London.

Due to the sensitive nature of this data, it is not possible to break the response down by month as the level of detail becomes too granular and may result in security issues. This method of reporting is consistent with data previously provided in response to other Mayor's Questions on terrorism related offences.

Data is current as of 1st August 2016:
