HARLOW MP Robert Halfon has welcomed news that crime has fallen once again over the last twelve months. Latest figures from the independent Office for National Statistics show that since 2010 recorded crime in Essex has fallen by 3%.
This trend of falling crime is supported by the independent Crime Survey of England and Wales and a fall in violent crime shown by fewer people going to hospital with injuries from violent incidents.
Commenting, Robert Halfon said: “It is great news that crime has fallen in Essex. Local police officers can be proud of their success in cutting crime. The Government has cut police red tape and given them one simple target: cut crime. And that’s what they are doing. This means people are safer on the streets, at home, and at work in Harlow.”
