Crime levels dropped by 17% in 2013, according to the States of Jersey Police’s Annual Report.
This comes on the back of a 4% decrease in 2012 and a 13% in 2011.
Despite this drop in crime there has been no such decrease in the number of incidents attended, as much of the Force’s work is now in less high profile activities.
The annual report gives a detailed breakdown of all areas of police work including the drop in acquisitive crime, burglary and night time economy violence.
It is the third year in a row that Jersey has recorded fewer than 4,000 crimes.
Report highlights include –
Chief Officer Mike Bowron said: “2013 was another successful year for the States of Jersey Police, to see crime dropping by such a significant amount again is something I am very proud of. I have some tremendous and dedicated staff working for me and I am grateful to them for all their hard work.
“I am also thankful to the public for the support they give us.
“However, I don’t want people to think that because the crime figures are dropping that we are suddenly not very busy, when in fact the opposite is true. Much of our work is now away from the limelight, and throughout the year we plan to let the public have a glimpse into some of the other work we do, for example the domestic abuse and cybercrime elements of policing.
“We are always going to be last resort for many people, however our continued work with other agencies can only be a good thing for the island.
“Finally, I would like to thank our Honorary Colleagues. Their support and hard work continues to be invaluable.”
