Car Theft from outside a dwelling
The latest crime stats published in June show a 31% decrease in domestic burglary offences and a 23% reduction in vehicle-related theft offences, driven by national lockdown restrictions.

Statistics show that patterns of crime have been significantly affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and government instructions to spend more time in their homes. Periods of national and local lockdown have seen decreases in the incidence of many types of crime, but unfortunately this has generally been followed by a return towards previous incidence levels once lockdowns ended, so itís still wise to protect your home and your driveway with a CCTV system.

Top 10 postcode hot spots for car theft are:

  1. Romford: RM
  2. Ilford and Barking: IG
  3. Birmingham: B
  4. North London: N
  5. Enfield: EN
  6. Dudley: DY
  7. South-West London: SW
  8. Bromley: BR
  9. Stockport: SK
  10. West End: W

Anti-Social Behaviour

The police recorded 1.8 million incidents of anti-social behaviour (ASB) in the year ending June 2021. Following consistent decreases over the past 10 years, this was an increase of 7% (excluding British Transport Police) compared with the year ending June 2020. The largest increase was seen in January to March 2021, with incidents up 46% compared with January to March 2020. This increase may reflect the reporting of breaches to public health restrictions, as most police forces include breaches reported to them by members of the public as an ASB incident.
