Convictions

The annual figures for adult and juvenile convictions. Detailed information is available on the laws and the individual offences.

In addition information has been available on the laws and individual offences in time series since 1999 for minors and since 1984 for adults. This statistical information is shown at national and in almost all cases also at cantonal level.
