Rydym yn edrych ar droseddau a gyflawnwyd, a nodweddion dioddefwyr. Rydym yn casglu'r ffigurau hyn o droseddau a gofnodwyd gan yr heddlu, ac o Arolwg Troseddu Cymru a Lloegr. Rydym hefyd yn cyhoeddi data ar ganlyniadau troseddau, o ran yr hyn a ddigwyddodd i'r troseddwr.
Patterns of crime in the year ending June 2021 have been significantly affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and government instructions to limit social contact. Periods of national lockdown have seen decreases in the incidence of many types of crime. This has generally been followed by a return towards previous incidence levels once lockdowns ended.
Fraud and computer misuse offences do not follow the lockdown-related pattern of reduced victimisation. Increases in these offences more than offset the reductions seen for other types of crime.
Sexual offences, as recorded by the police, were also lower during periods of lockdown, but to a lesser extent during the winter 2020 to 2021 lockdown than during the spring 2020 lockdown. The number of sexual offences reached its highest ever quarterly level between April and June 2021. Caution is needed when interpreting the level of police recorded sexual offences. Recent figures may reflect a number of factors including the impact of high-profile cases and campaigns on victims’ willingness to report incidents.
