The latest crime statistics from the Office for National Statistics show that crime was down overall in the quarter April-June 2020 as compared with the same period of last year.
On Friday 17 July 2020, the Office for National Statistics released their quarterly crime statistics for police forces across the country.
The crime statistics for 2018 have today (Thursday, 18 July 2019) been published by the ONS and South Yorkshire has seen an overall 2% increase in crime, compared to an 8% increase nationally.
The Crime Statistics have been published today, (Thursday, 24 January 2019) by the Office of National Statistics (ONS).
“The Crime Statistics published today show that crime has risen across the country including South Yorkshire, in the year June 2017-2018.
Dr Alan Billings, South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner said: “I note today’s crime statistics from the ONS. The crime figures present a mixed picture – drug offences down by 7% in South Yorkshire but violence against the person up by 35%.
The Crime Survey for England and Wales shows an increase in crime over the past year of about 10% across almost all types of crime. This is shocking in itself but if it points to a developing trend, it is seriously worrying.
“There has been some comment recently about the low detection rate for burglaries in South Yorkshire.
Statement from Dr Alan Billings, South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner:
“The latest national crime figures make it very clear that the years of cuts to police budgets are starting to have undesirable consequences.
