Data Sources: Police Recorded Crime in England and Wales, year ending March 2014.
1. Source: Police recorded crime, Home Office
2. Police recorded crime data are not designated as National Statistics.
3. Caution must be taken when interpreting offences that contain small numbers.
4. '-' indicates the base number is less than 50.
5. When interpreting data for Kent, users should be aware of recent changes to recording practices in that force. For further information see the section on 'Accuracy of the statistics' in the introduction to the statistical bulletin.
6. Percentage change figures for fraud are not presented. Action Fraud have taken over the recording of fraud offences on behalf of individual police forces.
Additionally, as part of a recent inquiry by the Public Administration Select Committee (PASC) into crime statistics allegations of under-recording of crime by the police have been made. This inquiry also heard evidence from the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Kent in which she referred to improvements in crime recording following an HMIC inspection in Kent that reported in February 2013 (HMIC, 2013). HMIC concluded that in Kent the decision to record a crime was made correctly approximately 90% of the time. In her evidence to the PASC inquiry the Kent PCC reported that subsequent internal audits have indicated compliance with the NCRS has increased to over 95%. This is consistent with the force level breakdown of police recorded crime data which shows a marked increase (up 11%) in the number of crimes recorded in Kent in the last year. Action taken in Kent to improve compliance with the NCRS is likely to have been an important factor in driving this increase1. These types of increases may be seen for other police forces over the coming months as a result of renewed focus on the quality of crime recording and a tightening up of compliance with the NCRS (see section on 'Interpreting data on police recorded crime').
