Crime: Lincolnshire

Volume 473: debated on Thursday 13 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many incidents of (a) violent crime, (b) burglary and (c) car crime took place in north east Lincolnshire in each year since 2000. (192040)

The available information relates to offences recorded in the north east Lincolnshire crime and disorder reduction partnership area and is given in the following table.

A number of changes have been made to recorded crime in response to suggestions in the two reviews of crime statistics. Once such change is that the term “violent crime” is no longer used in connection with the recorded crime statistics and we now provide figures for violence against the person. In addition, a new offence group of “Offences against vehicles” has also been created. This group includes offences of theft of and from a vehicle and interfering with a motor vehicle.
