British Crime Survey 2010/11 published

There were 7,727 robberies of business property recorded by the police in 2010/11 (including robberies in a shop or of cash in transit), the British Crime Survey showed today.

This represents a six per cent decrease compared with 2009/10.

Overall burglaries rose 14% in the last year - following a 9% fall the previous year, albeit that the overall crime level remained stable.

The BCS covers personal robberies against adults resident in households but the small number of robbery victims interviewed means that yearly trends are prone to fluctuation and should be interpreted with caution. The number of robberies estimated by the 2010/11 BCS, at 248,000, was not statistically significantly different to the 2009/10 BCS. The survey is based on interviews with tens of thousands of people in more than 45,000 households and is available at the Home Office website.

  • In 2010/11, police recorded robberies increased by one per cent since last year, to 76,179 offences. This follows a six per cent decrease in robberies last year, which continued a general downward trend since 2002/03. The 75,105 offences recorded last year was the lowest number since the introduction of the NCRS in April 2002.
  • In 2010/11, 90 per cent of robberies were of personal property. The police recorded 68,452 of these offences in 2010/11, up two per cent compared with 2009/10.
  • Overall, there were an estimated 9.6 million crimes in 2010/11, compared with 9.5 million the previous year, according to the BCS figures.
  • The number of crimes recorded by police fell slightly, down 4% to 4.2 million, compared with 4.3 million in 2009/10.

The number of burglaries recorded by police was also down 4%.
