One of the sanitiser stations in York City centre has been vandalised. Stupidity on so many levels
Crime levels in York gradually increased during the lock-down period. The latest figures cover the period up to the end of May.
Those for “York Outer”, which excludes the City centre, revealed that 1689 crimes were reported during May.
This was a 12 month high.
Crime levels in the City centre fell significantly during the same period. Despite this, during May, the Guildhall ward had the 19th highest crime incidence of any unitary authority ward across England & Wales
In total 1849 crimes were recorded within the York Council area during May.
Over half the reports involved anti-social behaviour. There were also significant numbers of complaints about violence/sexual offences suggesting that social isolation might have adversely impacted on the domestic violence numbers.
Lock-down eased during June so observers will be watching carefully to see whether the crime trend continues.
