UK crime hits record high as woke police solve smallest proportion on record

Recorded crime in England and Wales has reached its highest level on record, while the proportion of crimes solved by their increasingly woke police forces has fallen to its lowest level on record.

According The telegraph.

This is down from the already low level of 6.5% in 2021, and a huge drop from the equally not particularly impressive level of 15.5% when comparable statistics began to be recorded there. is seven years old.

Sexual offenses rose more than any other category of recorded crime, rising 21% to 196,889 – with just 1.5% of rapes and 3.1% of other sexual offenses resulting in prosecution.

Police officials have long blamed funding cuts for such failures – and indeed the ax has fallen particularly hard on law enforcement and the courts under the David Cameron-Nick Clegg austerity regime and in beyond that, while dodgy spending on things like foreign aid continued to rise – but there is a growing public perception that their poor performance is also linked to their apparent lack of interest in solving crimes like the burglaries while wasting time enforcing political correctness through actions such as arresting a priest’s wife for offending transgender people online.

“There is a recognition that [police]should do more to investigate crimes like burglary because of its impact on victims. There is growing recognition that this has gone far enough and that police need to focus on increasing detection rates,” Police Foundation Director Rick Muir said in comments on the statistics. crime cited by The telegraph – although it remains to be seen if any concrete actions will follow this supposed “recognition”, which tends to repeat itself every time the latest set of embarrassing figures is released.

“People were promised more police, they voted for more police, they pay for more police, and yet they don’t see or feel any benefit,” added Rory Geoghegan, a former police officer who served as the adviser. Boris Johnson’s special on crime. justice when he was prime minister.

“Politicians need to hold police chiefs to account for addressing these mainstream concerns, rather than allowing them to focus on pronouns, privilege and identity politics,” Geoghegan added – although when he and Johnson were at 10 Downing Street, there was no action on that. beyond the occasional empty rhetoric, while the Prime Minister and Home Secretary have pursued initiatives such as a bill banning so-called “online harms” as if to increase, rather than reduce, the fixation of the authorities on offenses against awakened sensitivities and “non-crimes”.
