Quarterly statistical update to December 2011 on the use of powers under the Terrorism act 2000 by police in Great Britain. A total of 167 persons were arrested for terrorism-related offences in the year ending 31 December 2011, compared with 127 in the previous 12 months and a total of 2,114 since 11 September 2001. Thirty-two per cent of persons arrested for terrorism-related offences in the year ending 31 December 2011 were arrested under section 41 of the Terrorism act 2000, compared with 42 per cent in the previous year and 75 per cent since 11 September 2001. The increase in arrests in the last year related to the policing of a demonstration in the most recent quarter (October to December 2011), where a number of arrests were made under the Police and criminal evidence act 1984 for suspected Terrorism act 2000 offences. Of the 167 persons arrested in the year ending 31 December 2011, 28 per cent were charged, compared with a charging rate of 39 per cent in the previous 12 months.
