Dear Correctional Services Department,

Can you provide statistics on nationalities of persons in custody. Do you also know many of these were previously Form 8/Recognisance holders. All the yearly data you have up to 2016 would be useful. If you have a breakdown of types of crimes that would be useful too.

Yours faithfully,

Scott Edmunds

Dear Mr. Scott Edmunds,

We refer to your email of 4.3.2017 and our interim reply of 13.3.2017.

You may refer to the following publications / websites for the statistics
on nationalities and offences of persons in custody:-

(a) our publication "Annual Statistical Report on Receptions" (which could
be found in Hong Kong public libraries / the libraries of different local
Universities); and
(b) our Annual Review
([1]http://www.csd.gov.hk/english/pub/pub_ar...
(c) “The statistics of CSD”
([2]http://www.csd.gov.hk/english/pub/the_st...

As at 1.2.2017, amongst the 1731 persons in custody of other
nationalities, 290 of them were in possession of “Form 8/Recognizance”
during admission to Correctional Services Department.
As persons in custody are not required to submit relevant documents upon
admission, the above statistics may not reflect the actual figures.
