Harrow Crime Figures – August 2012 Numbers Now Available

The Met Police have released their crime statistics for August 2012, and the results make for some good news.

In summary, Harrow retains it’s label of having an ‘average’ crime rate – which doesn’t really say much, as the majority of the Met’s area is similarly labelled. However, the good news is that reported crime is down, both from a short-term as well as a longer-term perspective:

 

Area
June
July
August
Harrow
1215
1195
1074
MPS
66568
67997
67084

That’s a drop of 1.6% from June to July, and a drop of 10% from July to August. Excellent news indeed, and a good result from Borough Commander Dal Babu and his team. Even more so in that crime across the Met’s area has increased by 2% between June and July, yet dropped by 1.3% between July and August.

Looking over the last three years, there’s a similar pattern:

 

Area
2009/10
2010/11
2011/12
Harrow
15394
14968
14195
MPS
829347
823454
815283

Again, there’s a drop of 2.8% between 2009/10 and 2010/211, with a further drop of 5% between 2010/11 and 2011/12.

So, where in Harrow has crime increased? Well, it’s up in Malborough, Edgware, Roxeth, Pinner South and Rayners Lane.  Elsewhere, a few wards stay the same, and the rest of the borough seems to have dropped.  Perhaps the best result is in Harrow on the Hill, where crime between July and August dropped by 34% (from 70 to 46 reported crimes).

We’d guess that fighting crime is somewhat like painting the Forth Bridge – you’d never finish. But it’s certainly good news generally across the Borough, and clearly shows that the efforts both locally from Dal Babu, as well as more widely across the Met’s area, are having an impact.
