The number of Fraud offences recorded by An Garda Síochána rose by 35.1% in the year to September 2019 from 5,779 to 7,805 recorded incidents. Drug offences increased by 17.2%, from 17,896 to 20,972. The upward trend in reported Sexual offences continued, up by 7.1% on the previous 12-month period to 3,332 incidents in the 12 months to September 2019. The number of incidents of Kidnapping and related offences also rose by 19 (16.2%). See Table 1.1.
The number of Homicides recorded for the 12 months to September 2019 fell by 27 compared with the previous period. This was largely driven by a decrease of 22 in the number of confirmed incidents of Dangerous driving leading to death compared with the previous year. Care should be taken when interpreting this drop, as the more recent figure may rise as investigations into fatal road traffic collisions conclude.
The figure for Homicide offences also reflects a technical revision carried out by An Garda Síochána during Q3 2019 to correct 156 PULSE records of Dangerous Driving Causing Death for the period 2003-2019 which were identified as having an incorrect reported date.
The number of Burglary and related offences decreased by 6.3% in the 12 months to September, from 17,694 to 16,580. A more detailed analysis of the data in Table 1.1 is provided in Chapter 3.
