Notifiable Offences Recorded by the Met Police by Type of Crime, Borough
JULY 2010 Crime and Community Safety
Number of notifiable offences recorded by the Met Police by type of crime.
Types of crime include: Violence against the person, wounding or other act endangering life, other wounding, harassment including penalty notices for disorder, common assault, robbery, theft from the person, criminal damage including arson, burglary in a dwelling, burglary other than a dwelling, theft of a motor vehicle, theft from a motor vehicle.
These data comprise key offences from the Home Office's recorded crime series. Almost all of the more minor summary offences are excluded.
The trend in harassment offences has been particularly affected by police force use of penalty notices for disorder.
Strengths of the Local Authority/Government Office Region level data are that they provide a comparable measure of crime recorded by the police, which covers the whole of England and Wales. Their main weakness is that they cannot measure overall levels of crime, as they exclude those which do not come to the attention of the police.
