Section 2 Trends in Number of Cleared Persons for Non-Traffic Penal Code Offenses
It is important to examine criminal trends from the viewpoint of who committed the offense and how. The characteristics of offenders can only be known after suspects are cleared. Therefore, in this Section, we will examine cleared non-traffic penal code offenders to view trends in their characteristic factors. However, we should note that the analysis based on cleared offenders does not reflect the characteristics of all offenders, because not all persons who committed offenses are cleared.
