North Yorkshire is One of The Safest Places to Live in The Country

A national crime report, published on 22 January 2015, has confirmed that North Yorkshire is one of the safest places in England to live, work and visit.

Chief Constable Dave Jones said:

"North Yorkshire Police is continuing to perform very well and it is reassuring that our area remains one of the very safest and low-crime locations in the whole of England. I can't thank our officers and staff enough for their outstanding dedication."

"It is encouraging that there is a greater reporting of crimes in the areas of domestic violence and sexual offences. The marginal increase is also a reflection of our proactivity, with Scarborough an example of this in relation to targeting drug offences."

"Together with the Police and Crime Commissioner and through continued effective partnership working across the county and region, we are determined to keep up the fight against crime and anti-social behaviour to ensure our communities are not only safe but feel safe."

Julia Mulligan, North Yorkshire's Police and Crime Commissioner, said:

"One of the key markers I have set down is for North Yorkshire Police is to keep our county in the top three safest places in England. I welcome today's figures which show we are indeed the second safest place to live in England, and it is testament to the professionalism of police officers and staff who make it possible."

"But statistics don't tell the whole story. I want to continue to see a rise in reports of domestic and sexual abuse and Hate Crime because it is a signal of greater trust in policing. So whilst this is good news, I will continue to ensure the focus of policing is in providing support for and protecting the most vulnerable people in our community."

  1. I don't think that these figures are anything to Brag about, a large amount of the most serious of crimes are on a substantial increase. Robbery, sexual offences, violence against the person,drugs,weapons,public order and crimes against society all up.
