At a meeting of the Thames Valley Police and Crime Panel, held on Friday 20th September, James Sainsbury, Acting Safer Buckinghamshire Partnership Manager, provided an update on the latest crime figures for Buckinghamshire.
Crime rates in the county are low overall compared with other areas of the Thames Valley, with encouraging reductions in public order offences, burglary and rural crime in the twelve months to August 2013. However, for rural crime and domestic burglary the decrease is less than seen in other areas covered by Thames Valley Police.
- Motor vehicle theft has increased by 18.1%
- Catalytic converter and laptop theft have contributed most to the recorded increase
- Theft of registration plates has also shown a disproportionate share of the crimes recorded.
- Domestic violence has also increased by 5.1%
Buckinghamshire has focused on improving the reporting of domestic violence, but it is felt that this crime is still under-reported.
Preventative work currently being done in Buckinghamshire includes the 'Domestic Violence Perpetrators' project, which works with both high and lower risk offenders, achieving better outcomes through early intervention.
