Latest figures from the Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW) showed that, for the offences it covers, there were an estimated 6.5 million incidents of crime against households and resident adults (aged 16 and over). This is an 8% decrease compared with the previous year’s survey, and the lowest estimate since the CSEW began in 1981.CSEW estimates was for the all theft offences category (which was down 8%).
Although all reported crime against households was down 8% due to the decrease in size of the police force it is unlikely that the crime rate will continue to fall, as the police force decreases crime will inevitably rise, residential areas will become more at risk of break-ins to their properties, as will commercial and industrial buildings
Since 2011 there has been a reduction of 20% in the amount spent on police by the Home Office. Peter Vaughan, acting president of the Association of Chief Police Officers, told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme that further cuts would mean fewer police officers and staff. The number of officers currently stands at 127,000 - the lowest level since September 2001 - though Labour promise to reverse planned cuts of 1,100 officer posts in 2015/16. However, the planned reversal by labour is no longer relevant after losing the general election.
