CRIME is continuing to fall in Derbyshire, according to the latest figures published by the police.
During the first six months of the year, overall crime fell by six per cent across the county compared to the same period last year – meaning nearly 2,000 fewer victims of crime.
Between April 1 and September 30 crime fell from 34,898 to 32,934 offences.
House burglary is down by 17 per cent, vehicle crime nine per cent and criminal damage nine per cent.
Violent crime is also bucking the trend with a 15 per cent reduction equating to a thousand fewer victims of crime.
What hasn’t been factored in ofcourse, is the number of crimes that do not get reported for whatever reason!!Follow @pdview
