Number of crime offences in England and Wales 2002-2019

Number of crime offences in England and Wales from 2002/03 to 2018/19 (in millions)

by Daniel Clark, last edited Jul 18, 2019
Number of crime offences in England and Wales 2002-2019 In 2018/19 the number of overall crime offences in England and Wales reached 5.95 million, an increase of around 430 thousand offences when compared with 2017/18. Although crime figures were higher in the early 2000s, the number of incidents declined from just over six million in 2003/04 to around four million by 2013/14. There have been year-on-year increases ever since 2013/14 however, increasing by over half a million offences in the latest reporting year.
More with less
The rise in crime witnessed during this period has led to serious questions about how to reverse this trend, and if the police have enough manpower and resources to counter it. Due to austerity measures pursued by British governments after 2010, police forces were forced to cut officer numbers in successive years between 2010 and 2018, resulting in a net decrease of over 20 thousand officers. While there was a slight increase in public sector expenditure on the police force in 2017/18, the 17.5 billion British pounds spent that year was far smaller than the 19.3 billion spent in 2009/10.

Crime rates higher in Northern England
The three regions in England and Wales with the highest crime rate in this year were the North East, the North West and Yorkshire. London, the UK capital also had a relatively high crime rate of 93.6 crimes per 1,000 people while the South West of England had the lowest crime rate of 66.6 crimes per 1,000 people.
