According to a 1998 MORI survey of 11-16 year olds, reported in the Youth Justice Board’s ‘Annual Report’, only seven out of 10 school children can say with certainty that they have not offended in the past year and a quarter (24%) admit to committing an offence during that time.
However, only one in six of those who admitted offending said their last offence had been detected by the police. In its ‘Crime Reduction Strategy’, the Government estimates that young people under 18 commit around seven million offences a year.
