This bulletin is the second in a series of supplementary volumes that accompany the main annual Home Office Statistical Bulletin, ‘Crime in England and Wales 2009/10’ (Flatley et al., 2010). These supplementary volumes explore topics from the main annual bulletin in greater detail.
This bulletin covers three topic areas related to violence. These are:
Homicide. This chapter contains analysis of figures from the Home Office Homicide Index, including method of killing, relationship between victims and suspect, age and gender breakdowns, ethnicity in homicide and suspect outcomes.
Recorded offences involving the use of firearms. This chapter provides further analysis of the provisional data that were published in the annual bulletin. Analyses include the type of firearms used in recorded offences, how the firearms were used, the types of crime that firearms were used in and injuries sustained.
