Do latest figures reveal that Thurrock continues to be a burglars paradise?


JUST seven burglaries out of 124 committed in Thurrock in March have been solved.

YourThurrock has been tracing burglary solve rates in Thurrock for several years and it appears that they continue to be one of the worst solve rates in the country.

But with reports that just fifteen police officers cover the whole of West Essex (which covers Thurrock and up to Harlow) it would appear that unless a burglar is caught red handed or is confesses as part of a roll-up (which may account for the six solves in Quarry Hill listed below).

To compare and contrast, police numbers in Scotland have risen every year since 1985. Solve rates in some areas sit at 40% and major inquires occur if they drop beneath 25%.

Over the years, the powers that be, manage to come up with a range of excuses/reasons to explain the figures.

There is also a high question as to how many people are actually reporting burglaries as well. Are we really expected to believe that there were just two burglaries in Tilbury for the whole of March. Is that to do with the closure of Tilbury police station?

For your information, here is the list and location of all 124 burglaries in Thurrock in March. Figures for April and May are not available yet.
