There were 17,651 recorded Controlled drug offences (ICCS 10) in 2011, a decrease of 11.3% since 2010. The number of drug offences had decreased every year since 2008. In 2011, over 70% of recorded offences in this group were Possession of drugs for personal use (ICCS 1022) offences.

The overall detection rate for this group in 2011 was 98.9%. 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.

Relevant proceedings were taken for 12,119 Controlled drug offences recorded in 2011, with court proceedings commencing for 10,807 offences. Convictions were secured in 3,694 instances, while 1,698 offences were still pending.
