Crime: Victims

Volume 467: debated on Tuesday 13 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people aged 65 years and over in (a) the East of England and (b) Suffolk have been victims of crime in each of the last five years. (162590)

The information requested is not available centrally. Details of the age of victims of crime are not available from the recorded crime statistics. The British Crime Survey collects details of the victim's age and can look at victimisation of those aged 65 and over at a national level. However, this data cannot be reliably broken down at either regional or police force area level.
