Crime Down in Dorset - Making our community a safer place to live.

The latest figures from the independent Crime Survey of England and Wales show that crime across the country has fallen by more than a fifth in the same period.

In England and Wales this means that in the last year, compared with the year before this Government came to power, there were:

·         More than 2.3 million fewer crimes.

·         160,000 fewer homes burgled.

·         290,000 fewer vehicle crimes.

·         413,000 fewer violent crimes.

·         962,000 fewer incidents of criminal damages.

 The Government is following an action plan to tackle crime and make Dorset a safer place to live.  Thanks to our plan and the hard work of police officer families are safer and more secure in Dorset and can enjoy a better, brighter future.
