Crime falling

Local MP Brooks Newmark has welcomed news that crime is falling. Crime recorded by the police in Essex has fallen by 2 percent since 2010. 
 
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.
Commenting, local MP Brooks Newmark said: 
 
‘The Government is following an action plan to tackle crime and make Braintree a safer place to live.
 
‘Crime has fallen by 2 percent in Essex thanks to our plan and the hard work of police officers.   
 
‘This means families are safer and more secure – and Braintree can enjoy a better, brighter future.’
