Theft from a shop or stall: data release pre-announcement
The Council will be publishing data collected from magistrates’ courts covering the factors taken into account when sentencing adult offenders for theft from a shop or stall, (where this was the principal offence), on 17 December 2020.
This will be the first data release of its kind since the cessation of the Crown Court Sentencing Survey.
The Council has moved to using bespoke targeted data collections in recent years to support guideline development and evaluation. It intends to publish additional data collections covering Drug offences, Robbery and other offences in due course.
