Mike Weatherley, the Conservative Member of Parliament for Hove and Portslade, has welcomed news that crime has fallen once again over the last twelve months.
The latest figures from the independent Office for National Statistics show that recorded crime in Sussex has fallen by 13%since 2010.This trend of falling crime is supported by the independent Crime Survey of England and Wales and a fall in violent crime is highlighted by fewer people being admitted to hospital with injuries from violent incidents.
Commenting, Mike said: “It is great news that crime has fallen across Sussex. Sussex Police can be rightly proud of their success in cutting crime. The Government has cut police red tape and given them one simple target: cut crime. And that’s what they are doing. I also want to praise our outstanding Police and Crime Commissioner, Katy Bourne.”
