Caveats:

1. JPA is a live system which is updated for retrospective complaints/allegations and therefore, data can be subject to change.

2. These figures are single service estimates only and are not official statistics produced by Defence Statistics.

3. The data represents the number of charges; it may be that more than one charge has been brought against the same person.

4. Table two shows the number of other sexual offences under the Sexual Offences Act 2003 or its historical equivalent.

5. People working at AFC Harrogate does not include recruits.

6. The % columns detail the proportion of convictions in relation to charges at Court Martial.
