Police fiddle the crime figures

Our feral police pretend that crime is going down, as I've blogged before -

"Police forces are routinely massaging crime figures to make hundreds of offences 'disappear in a puff of smoke'....official crime statistics are regularly skewed to make a police force’s performance appear far better than it is in reality, the House of Commons Public Administration Committee heard. Retired and serving police officers gave evidence about techniques....which they said were sanctioned by senior officers - such as downgrading offences to less serious crimes or persuading victims not to make a complaint. In some cases crimes were only recorded if they were solved, and others were kept completely off the books if an offender could not be traced....the disclosures will further undermine confidence in official Home Office statistics which claim crime is at its lowest level for more than 30 years."

"James Patrick - a Metropolitan Police constable who is currently awaiting disciplinary proceedings over a whistleblowing book - said he became concerned after joining the force in 2009 and finding robberies being logged as “snatch theft”, a less serious crime, in order to massage the figures. 'Burglary is an area where crimes are downgraded or moved into other brackets, such as criminal damage for attempted burglaries, or other types of thefts,' he said. 'Things were clearly being reported as burglaries and you would then re-run the same report after there had been a human intervention - a management intervention - and these burglaries effectively disappeared in a puff of smoke.' Mr Patrick said he analysed the recording of serious sexual offences and found that in 80 per cent of cases recorded as 'no crime', the designation was 'incorrect'.

Victims of moslem grooming can expect scant justice from the police, who prefer to frame elderly white celebrities for sexual offences to take our mind off the problem.

  1. Let's not blame ordinary PC's like me for this massaging of crime figures.I'm sick of it as well.I put a crime report on as I see fit and then it goes up the ladder to be re-classified or no-crimed.The govt is putting huge pressure on senior police officers to keep the figures down for political purposes i.e to win elections and to get the public to agree massive budget cuts.

    1. True, the police continue to drift even further away from the public....
