A total of 30,065 Social Enquiry Reports (excluding supplementary reports) were submitted to the courts in 2001-02, an increase of 10% from 27,304 in 2000-01.

6,509 Community Service Orders (including 1,944 Probation Orders with a Requirement of Unpaid Work) were made in 2001-02, a 6% increase over the previous year's total of 6,131. The total of 6,509 equates to 18.1 Orders per 10,000 population.

1,154 breach applications were made to the courts in respect of Community Service Orders (excluding Probation Orders with Requirement of Unpaid Work) in 2001-02, a drop of 7% from the previous year's total of 1,240.

4,368 Community Service Orders (excluding Probation Orders with Requirement of Unpaid Work) were terminated (including orders which were successfully completed) in 2001-02, an increase of 12% from the previous year's total of 3,912.

A total of 7,071 Probation Orders were made in 2001-02, representing a 19% increase from 5,928 in 2000-01. The total of 7,071 corresponds to 19.6 Orders per 10,000 population.

Every effort has been made to ensure that data have been collected on the same basis through time for each local authority. However, as a result of an improved data collection system, there may be slight differences between figures for 1999-00 to 2001-02 and those for earlier years.
