Crime Statistics Advisory Committee

The Crime Statistics Advisory Committee is a non-statutory body established by the National Statistician.

The Committee was established following a recommendation from the National Statistician's Review of Crime Statistics: England and Wales (published 6 June 2011) to establish an independent advisory committee on crime statistics.

The Committee functions as a strategic, high level advisory body offering independent advice to the Home Secretary, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) on matters related to the measurement of crime and the collection and presentation of crime data for England and Wales. It advises on how best to ensure that official statistics on crime are accurate, clearly presented, comprehensive, transparent and trustworthy taking account of the needs of users and providers. The current chair of the committee is Professor Stephen Shute - Head of the School of Law, Politics and Sociology and Professor of Criminal Law and Criminal Justice, University of Sussex
