The National Statistician’s 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.
In March 2015, the National Statistician agreed with the Home Secretary to re-establish the former Crime Statistics Advisory Committee with revised terms of reference that focus the Committee’s accountability to the National Statistician. Professor Sir Adrian Smith was asked to chair the re-established committee.
