Violent crime in London 2010-2019

Number of violent crime offences recorded in London from 2010/11 to 2018/19 (in 1,000 offences)*

by Daniel Clark, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Violent crime in London 2010-2019 There were over 215.7 thousand violent crime offences recorded by the Metropolitan Police in London in 2018/19 an increase of approximately 13.8 thousand compared with the previous year. From a low of just 126.4 thousand violent crimes in 2012/13, violent crime rose in every subsequent year to reach the current levels seen in 2018/19.
Overall offences also rising
The overall crime figures for London also show a trend of increasing crime in the UK capital. Although in several important areas 2018/19 saw a decline when compared with 2017/18. These include homicides and knife crime offences which both experienced a year-on-year decrease in 2018/19.

Funds rising again
The amount budgeted for the Metropolitan Police by the Mayor of London for 2019/20 was 3.56 billion British pounds, the highest figure since 2012/13 when it was 3.62 billion. If this will be enough to reverse the trend of rising crime or compensate for the loss of almost 2.3 thousand police officers in London remains to be seen.
