Total Recorded Offences
The total number of offences recorded has fallen by over half (61%) since 2013-14, including a 5% decrease from 180,913 in 2021-22 to 172,207 in 2022-23.
In 2022-23, of all recorded offences:
- Road traffic offences accounted for just under two thirds (63%)
- Antisocial offences accounted for just under a third (29%)
- Miscellaneous offences accounted for 7%
It should be noted that the number of offences recorded by the police generally tends to be affected to a greater extent by police activity and operational decisions than the number of crimes.
