Helping to prevent you from becoming a victim of crime.
A question often asked is what crimes happen in my town, this can be at certain key times, such as when deciding to move house, or when certain suspicious things are noticed.
We have tried to answer this question here
Firstly go to the Crime Near You menu of this website
Once there you different crime types are split up, there is information for
Violent Crime (Violence against the person)
Theft from the Person (pickpocketing etc)
Vehicle Crime (stolen cars, motorcycle and items stolen from vehicles)

To find out what crime happens where I live you can then find your area in the table. These numbers represent how many crimes have taken place in that area in 2013/14 and what percentage change that was from the year before.
The tables shows details of offences in the last year.
A range of crime prevention advice is available on the mycrimeprevention.co.uk website, in addition to details about key crime prevention products, such as forensic security devices.
A recent report highlighted by the BBC showed that up to a fifth of crimes could be going unrecorded.
This may mean that up to 20% of all crimes that take place, may not be being recorded, therefore more crimes could be taking place than those highlighted official data sources.
The report was produced by the HMIC and involved inspecting a number of forces including, Cheshire, City of London, Devon and Cornwall, Essex, Gloucestershire, Greater Manchester, Gwent, Hertfordshire, The Metropolitan Police, Norfolk, North Wales, North Yorkshire and South Yorkshire. The remaining 30 forces in England, Wales and Northern Ireland will be inspected in due course.
