Recorded crime is down for the period 2012/2013, reflecting crime coming down across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.
Trends for overall crime show crime has been decreasing for a five-year period across the Force area.
Leicestershire Police is pleased to have been able to work with local people and partners to protect our communities, in turn resulting in fewer victims of crime.
Chief Constable Simon Cole said: “It has been a successful year. However, we are not complacent. We will continue to work with local people and partners in the coming days, weeks and months to deliver a challenging Police and Crime Plan, tackling the crime and anti-social behaviour which matters most to local people.”
Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Sir Clive Loader said: “The figures show a great improvement, especially with regard to the crimes which cause most harm to people. Whilst not all targets have been met, Leicestershire Police is heading in the right direction and we are making a good start in delivering the key priorities outlined in my Police and Crime Plan.”
Sir Clive has published his Police and Crime Plan for tackling crime and reducing the number of victims in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland over the next four years.
