North Yorkshire Police emergency – 999
PLEASE REPORT ANY INSTANCES OF ANTI- SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR TO ENABLE OUR COMMUNITY SUPPORT OFFICERS TO BUILD A PROFILE FOR THE VILLAGE.
North Yorkshire remains the safest area in England despite the latest official figures which show a 13% increase in recorded crime.
This was confirmed in the Office of National Statistics’ (ONS) “Crime in England and Wales, year ending September 2018” bulletin published today (Thursday 24 January 2019).
It shows there were a total of 42,279 crimes in North Yorkshire during the 12-month period, giving a crime rate of 51.6 per 1,000 of the population. However, it is still the lowest crime rate in England with the national average standing at 85.7.
North Yorkshire Police anticipated the increase following improvements in the way the force records crime.
This was in response to Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Service’s (HMICFRS) Crime Data Integrity Inspection Report, published in February last year, which highlighted administration issues rather than letting victims down.
