Today’s published crime data shows police recorded crime for the 12 months to September 2011 is down 4% when compared to the previous 12 months.

ACPO lead on crime, Chief Constable Jon Murphy, said:

“The latest crime statistics show continuing efforts to reduce crime, protect the public from harm and improve public confidence in policing. Today’s published crime data shows police recorded crime for the 12 months to September 2011 is down four per cent when compared with the previous 12 months. The independent British Crime Survey also shows crime levels remain steady and the service is encouraged by a continued increase in those people who believe the police in their local area are doing a good or excellent job.

“There was an eight per cent fall in police recorded violence against the person offences and it is particularly encouraging to see a continued trend towards a reduced number of police recorded firearms offences. Although these crimes are relatively small in number, their impact on communities can be severe and police forces will continue to work with the National Ballistics Intelligence Service and other law enforcement agencies to build on this performance and further disrupt criminals’ access to firearms.

“While incidents in violence against the person overall fell, a continued cause for concern was the increase in pick-pocketing, robbery, and robbery with knives. This has been driven by a rise in robberies of personal property and police forces will want to focus actions on tackling these offences and offering crime prevention advice. Keeping valuables hidden from view and taking precautions such as setting passcodes on mobile phones and other electronic devices are all important measures that people can take to prevent becoming a victim of crime.”
