We manage research and collect statistics on crime, drugs misuse, immigration and the police.
The areas we cover include:
- drugs misuse
- the police
This information helps Home Office ministers and policy-makers address the concerns of ordinary citizens. It also helps the police, the courts and immigration officials to do their jobs as effectively as possible.
We are made up of skilled specialist staff such as statisticians, researchers, economists, communication professionals and scientists all working together to inform and advise Parliament and the public as well as our Home Office colleagues.
Examples of our work include:
- collecting statistics on offences recorded by the police
- research into human trafficking to the UK
- producing information on drug misuse
