A consultation concluded on 15 January 2010 (announced in the quarterly statistical bulletin published on 22 October 2009) that proposed moving to reporting national recorded crime trends in the regular quarterly crime bulletins on the basis of rolling 12 month comparisons. Two responses to the consultation were made, one of which is supportive of the change, the other makes a number of observations and suggestions, but is not against the change. In the light of this response we plan to implement the proposed change in reporting in the next quarterly bulletin on crime (due to be published on 22 April 2010 giving results for the 2009 calendar year).
