Recorded crimes 2019-20

26 August 2020

Updated recorded crime figures for 2020-20 were recently added to the site. The number of recorded crimes has risen by 5,434 from 2017-18 (41,155) to 2019-20 (46,589). This increase is largely due to stricter adherence to the National Crime Recording Standard (NCRS), which means that all reported crime is now recorded, unless there is compelling evidence to the contrary. The report ‘Crime in England and Wales: year ending March 2020’ gives more explanation about which crimes nationally are thought to have actually increased, rather than those which have changed due to better recording. Previous years are still available though no longer comparable with years 2016-17 and beyond.
