Page 52 - There were 19,943 recorded Controlled Drug Offences (ICCS 10) in 2010, a decrease of 9.1% since 2009. The number of drug offences had increased every year between 2003 and 2008, but decreased since then. In 2010, over 70% of recorded offences in this group were Possession of drugs for personal use (ICCS 1022) offences. See table 10.1 and figure 10.1.

The overall detection rate for this group in 2010 was 98.6%. Drug offences have high detection rates due to the fact that a suspected offender is generally present when the incident becomes known to the Gardaí.
