Total Crimes

Total Notifiable Offences (TNO) is a count of all offences which are statutorily notifiable to the Home Office. Read our crime prevention advice.

The National Fraud Authority now records figures for frauds in the UK, instead of individual police forces. Its Action Fraud service started in the Metropolitan Police's area on 4 February 2013. It should be noted that the count of Total Notifiable Offences (TNOs) will include fraud offences only up to that date, after that period the TNO count excludes fraud offences.
