Good news on crime

The Home Office’s latest British Crime Survey has found that the number of crimes committed in England and Wales has fallen to its lowest level since records began in 1981. In 2009-10, crimes committed fell to 9.6 million – 9 per cent below the previous year, indicating that the recession has not caused an increase in offences.

I've just come back from a police community meeting in my ward this evening, where the sergeant taking the meeting, in response to a question raised by me, reported that burgulary was down in our area year on year.
I responded to him that this was good news,but made the point very strongly that some number cruncher somewhere had better not reduce our resourses on the grounds of the crime reduction.
