Two burglaries out of 113 solved in Thurrock in November 2015

OVER the next week, senior police officers will be coming to speak to politicians and public alike regarding crime in Thurrock.

The Essex Police and Crime Commissioner, Nick Alston will be joined by politicians at a meeting in the Homesteads on Saturday afternoon.

The Chief Constable will be making a presentation at Thurrock Council on Wednesday Jan 27th.

Many people are concerned regarding burglary. They will no doubt be met by Essex Police telling them recorded crime is down. Sceptics often retort that it is the "recording of crime" which is also down.

And perhaps there is not the appetite, culture and motivation in the police in Essex to seek out burglaries?

Here at YT we have taken a keen interest in these stats.


2007: 1815 208 11% Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â

2008: 1973 192 10%

2009: 1408 251 18%

In Oct 2013, 100 burglaries and only two solved.

In Feb 2014, 156 burglaries committed and only three solved.

We have now had a further look into the crime figures for 2015.

In November 2015, there were 113 burglaries and just two were solved.

We have been to many many meetings over the years. When it comes to burglary clear up rates, we have heard gobbledygook like. "Well at the moment, we are 50% further forward than we were last year."

Or a sort of candid: "They are not as good as they should be."

But, judging by the stats above, whatever they are doing, is not working.

Is it the cuts? It must have some impact. However if that was the case, why are there police forces with solve rates between 30% and 40%?

Finally, you may notice in the crime stats below that there is no mention of Chafford Hundred. That is because, there were no reported burglaries in Chafford Hundred in November 2015.

Perhaps the good people of Chafford have given up?

If you live in Chafford Hundred, was broken into in November and reported it, then let us know….
