Minister vows to meet police numbers target
Minister says police will be under increased pressure to maintain standar바카라 게임ds and increase numbers of victims of crime
Police have received 4,923 complai일산출장마사지nts over the past year and are making 13,878 arrests, police said.
There has also been a 3 per cent rise in reports of sexual assault, 1.4 per cent increase in assault, a 1.9 per cent rise in property damage and 9 per cent rise in minor car theft, all through July – with police reporting an extra 11,600 offences in July compared with July 2012.
“Achieving targets is never easy,” an official from Scotland Yard said. “They may appear easy, but their impact is sometimes too harsh.”
Victims of crime will benefit from extra police protection, the figures showed. Police statistics showed that 1,897 victims have been called to police emergency number during July, and 591 incidents have been recorded through April.
On Thursday, the Home Office announced that police will be under more pressures, and targets will also need to be met in order for more victims to come forward.
Police Scotland said: “In the past year, 4,923 reports of sexual assault have been made to the police service and 1,897 reports of assault have been recorded through April.
“The police service has been working hard to make more victims of crime, including offering support to victims and ensuring the safety of those reporting sexual assault.
“In 2015 and 2016, our priority was to maintain standards, to keep crime figures up and meet targets for the police. In May, police were asked by the Home Office and Government to deliver additional funding of £17 million per year over the next five years to provide further support to ensure victims are given the support they need to recover their feelings of security and confidence.”
A total of 5,400 rape kits were collected광주출장마사지 광주안마 in the first two weeks of the year.
A Home Office spokesman said: “All police forces will continue to make a priority of protecting victims and ensuring that their reports of sexual assault are investigated, which we do by way of a statutory approach to the issue of sexual assault. The force must maintain and maintain confidence with members of the public and the media, as well as ensuring victims are informed of the evidence against them, and there must be fair and effective disciplinary procedures available to officers to investigate complaints.”
