Since 2009-10 data have been extracted from the Incident Recording System (IRS). This is a live system and consequently it is possible that data extracted at a different time may not match the figures in this table. For instance the data published in the Performance Indicator tables are extracted at a different time and so may not match exactly those presented here.

2010-11 data were extracted from IRS in May 2012.
2011-12 data were extracted from IRS in May 2013.
