The Home Office collect and publish data on use of various police powers, including pre-charge bail. Information has been collected on the number of individuals on pre-charge bail and the length of pre-charge bail since April 2017. The data are published as part of the annual ‘Police Powers and Procedures’ statistical release, available in Annex B:
