Nearly 90% of all burglaries in Thurrock remain unsolved

NEARLY 90% of all burglaries in Thurrock remain unsolved, as revealed
by a freedom of information
request by YourThurrock.

Figures show that the "solve" rate has made no improvement in the
five years from 2006 to 2011.
And this is despite, the police having thousands of less crimes reported to them.

In 2006, there were 1815 burglaries reported to the police in Thurrock.
208 were detected or solved.
A clear up rate of 11%.
In 2011, there were 1642 burglaries reported to the police in Thurrock.
189 were detected or solved.
A clear up rate of 11%.

It is unknown as to how many of those 189 went to court but the omens are not good as Basildon magistrates
court is the third most
lenient court in the UK for convicted burglars.

Each year, since 2006, YT asks Essex Police for the clear-up rates in
seven different crime categories.
What stands out is that in 2006, there were 9484 crimes reported across the seven categories.

In 2011, there were 6633.
A fall of 2851. Many may feel that with thousands of less crimes being reported,
that would free up the
police to concentrate on solving more crimes.
Clearly not.

The figures also show that there has been a 13% drop in solving crimes against the person.
A 12% drop in solving sex offence cases.

We will be publishing responses from across the organisations over the next week.
But for now, here are the stats.
