- Hi Jeff,
Here is a crime update since the Government released the latest Crime Statistics.
Crime was an issue 10 years ago. Crime was actually an increasingly worrying
issue in the late 1990s, as was mentioned in the book, "Die, the Beloved
So in 2000, the Government clamped down on all crime statistics and ever
since, they only release them 1 year after they happened. They do not give
out weekly or monthly info like happens in the USA (I am told).
So a short while back the crime statistics were released. Here is news
about that and various recent crime-related articles.
