Recorded crime falls again

The figures for recorded crime in the Thames Valley have fallen again. Crimes are now 28% lower than in June 2010 when the Coalition government took over.

I thank all those who have played a role in bringing about this improvement. One crime is one crime too many, but it is good that overall the numbers are falling, including falls in crimes like violent assaults and burglary which are most worrying to victims.

    Crime has been falling all over the developed world for the last twenty years, regardless of the complexion of governments. No one is really sure why, but we can be pretty confident politicians don’t deserve the credit.
