1 An incident is cleared by charge when at least one accused has been formally charged. An incident is cleared "otherwise" when the police have identified at least one accused and there is sufficient evidence to lay a charge in connection with the incident, but the accused is processed by other means. This could occur for a number of reasons: the police may have used discretion and decided not to lay a charge, or the accused has been diverted to an alternative measures program.
