The total number of defendants proceeded against as well as those convicted of blackmail for the 2008-2018 decade will appear in the pivot table.</p><p> </p><p>However, specific information regarding blackmail offences, such as the offence of blackmail against people that demanded money to leave sites which they were occupying illegally, may be held on court record. But to be able to identify these cases, as they are not held centrally, we would have to access individual court records which would be of disproportionate cost.</p>

star this property answer text <p>As part of plans for the future of probation announced on 16 May 2019, the National Probation Service (NPS) will assume responsibility for managing all offenders in England and Wales. The NPS is performing well in managing higher risk offenders and is best placed to achieve the benefits of unifying offender management within a single organisation. There are no plans to change the status of the NPS as a public body.</p><p> </p><p>The aim of these changes is to help deliver a stronger, more stable probation system that better plays to the respective strengths of the public, private and voluntary sectors, that will reduce reoffending, support victims of crime and keep the public safe – and merit the confidence of the courts and the public.</p> more like this
