Decision not to prosecute figures (FOI)Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 23 August 2022.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
In England, statistics are available, by year and principal offence, to show the total number of victims right to review received following a decision not to prosecute and, as a result of these requests, the number of these original decisions overturned. Please provide these statistics for Jersey for the last five years. If it is not possible to provide by offence, the total number of decisions overturned will suffice.
The States of Jersey Police does not hold the information requested. Article 3 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 applies.
