Violent Crime up 33% under Labour

The Police have published their data for December 2022, so we can now look at crime rates over the last five years.

The number of violent offences was relatively static at 50,000 from 2015 to 2018, but in the last four years has increased to over 70,000. That is 20,000 more victims and almost 200 people a day being assaulted.

If you adjust for population growth, it is still a huge 33% increase in the rate of violent offending since 2017.
