I am advised by the Garda authorities that the attached table outlines the number of cautions issued by offence under the adult scheme in each of the years requested by the Deputy. The information provided is up 30 August 2019 and is operational and subject to change.

It should be noted that to produce this report, data was collated from PULSE of incidents where the suspected offender was issued with an Adult Caution for the years 2007 to 2018 for crime categories Assault, Public Order and Criminal Damage offences. 

Only Sub-Districts where 10 or more Adult Cautions were issued between 2007 and 2018 are listed. Where no Adult Caution was issued in a particular Sub-District in a give year, this is shown as "0".  Where less than 10 incidents are recorded within a particular Sub-District is shown as "*"
