That’s because crime goes unsolved. statistics are only based on prosecution

Recent crime in Harlow. A rape, a man murdered and dumped in a pond, several stabbings, a rape, a baby murdered and a man stabbed to death in a park.

Yep who bothers to report crime when nothing gets done. You cannot earn 50 pence only over the carer's allowance limit before the weight of the govt descends on you but you can get continuing crimes perpetrated against you and they don't have the resources to investigate it.
