Andrew Griffiths: Crime continues to fall under this Government

Burton’s MP Andrew Griffiths has welcomed news that crime has fallen by more than a quarter (27 per cent) under this Government – its lowest level on record – according to latest figure from the independent Office for National Statistics.

The Government has been following an action plan to tackle crime by:

  1. Freeing the police to fight crime by cutting red tape and scrapping unnecessary targets
  2. Giving criminals tougher sentences so communities are protected and justice is done
  3. Giving the police the powers they need to tackle criminals, using the latest tools and techniques
  4. Stopping people from becoming criminals by tackling the root causes of crime
  5. Making the police answer to the community to help drive down crime in your area

Commenting, Andrew Griffiths said:

‘We have been following an action plan to tackle crime and make Britain a safer place to live, work and raise a family. This plan is working. The independent Crime Survey of England and Wales shows that crime continues to fall under this Government, reaching a record low. In Staffordshire, crime recorded by the police has fallen by 19%. We need to stick to the plan that is working – so people across the country can enjoy a better, brighter future.’
