Table 7: Number of persons committed to Irish prisons & places of detention between 2001-2006

Year Total number of persons committed   Total number of committals
2001 9,539 12,127
2002 9,716 11,860
2003 9,814 11,7821
2004 8,820 10,657
2005 8,686 10,658
2006 9,700 12,1572
  1. This figure is based on the revised figure for 2003 presented on page 10 of the Irish Prison Service Annual Report 2004.
  2. This figure is higher than the total committals figure quoted in the Irish Prison Service Annual Report 2006. This is because the figure quoted in the Annual Report 2006 (12,153) does not include committals which were initially received on remand/ awaiting trial and were subsequently recommitted under sentence. According to the Irish Prison Service Annual Report 2006, 160 committals were already in custody at the start of the year on remand/ awaiting trial and were subsequently recommitted on conviction. This increases the committals under sentence figure from 5,642 to 5,802 and the total committals figure by an equivalent amount.
