General description
This dataset gives information on the recorded non-notifiable offences on the rail network in Wales up to the 2015-16 financial year. Information about railway crimes comes from the British Transport Police’s computerised crime reporting system, CRIME. Data are presented as the total number of recorded non-notifiable offences in that financial year.

Revisions information
Data for previous periods are routinely updated. Data for the current financial or calendar year may be revised with the release of next year’s data set.

Statistical quality
Rail crime information is compiled by the British Transport Police’s (BTP) computerised crime reporting system, CRIME. The Home Office introduced a National Crime Reporting Standard (NCRS) that all police forces across England and Wales were required to adopt. BTP adopted this standard on 1 April 2002.
