Reports from the media showcase the rising levels of crime within the UK although it is worth understanding the actual figures based around crime leavels and the ypes of crime becoming more popular, this in itself will help spread awareness to the general public and organisations alike.

UK Crime Rising Figures

According to National Police figures, in England and Wales crime has risen by 14% each year although it is worth noting that these figures are stablizing in 2018 meaning that in general terms most people will not have been involved or affected by crime. However, as seen in the media far too commonly is that knife crime is on the rise with a 16% increase throughout 2018 and with over 1.2 million violent crimes being recorded.
