“Crime in England and Wales has fallen to its lowest level on record, data from the Office for National Statistics shows.

Incidents of violent crime have dropped by 28% in the year to June 2023. The decline has been driven by a fall in criminal damage and fraud offences recorded by the police, ONS said.

A separate Crime Survey for England and Wales, which polls members of the public, suggests theft has dropped by 20% below pre-pandemic levels.”
