How CCTV Can Help Combat the Expected Post-Covid Rise in Crime

Comments Off on How CCTV Can Help Combat the Expected Post-Covid Rise in Crime

According to the Office of National Statistics, Police recorded theft offences decreased by 32% in the year ending March 2021 compared with the previous year. This was driven by decreases in offences such as theft from the person (56%), shoplifting (36%), burglary (30%) and vehicle offences (28%).

Police recorded robbery offences decreased by 34% in the year ending March 2021 compared with the previous year. This contrasts with the upwards trend seen since the year ending March 2015.

These falls were compelled by the numerous national lockdown restrictions, with non-essential shops and the night-time economy is closed and people spending more time in their homes. However, it is expected that the upwards trend is set to return as the lockdown restrictions are lifted and life is almost back to ‘normality’.
