How much crime happens in the UK?

The homicide rate in the UK was 1.2 per 100,000 in 2016, the third highest rate in Western Europe, after Belgium and France. In England and Wales, the homicide rate increased 39% from a 38-year low of 0.89 per 100,000 in 2015 to a decade high of 1.23 per 100,000 in 2018. The rise is mainly due to higher levels of violence between people who know each other. Robbery is also more common than average residents might think: according to statistics from the Office for National Statistics, 8.4 million crimes were reported to police in 2017/18. That's about half the population.

Crime statistics for the UK are published annually by the Home Office. Crime rates have fallen over recent decades, but they are still very high by international standards. For example, there were an estimated 3.6 million crimes against property recorded by police in 2008/09. This amounts to about 7.2 crimes per 1000 persons. By comparison, figures from the World Bank show that the crime rate in India is about one-sixth of this level.

There are several ways in which crime can be measured. One common method is to estimate the amount of damage done to property as a result of crime. This is called "vandalism" or "criminal damage". Police record incidents involving vandalism or criminal damage that require investigation or prosecution. They may do this by interviewing witnesses, studying CCTV footage, etc.

How many murders take place in Ireland?

The murder/homicide rate in Ireland in 2018 was 0.87, a 1.04 percent rise over 2017. In 2017, the murder/homicide rate in Ireland was 0.86, representing a 9.48 percent rise over 2016. Ireland's murder/homicide rate in 2016 was 0.79, representing an 18.25 percent rise over 2015. The murder/homicide rate in Ireland in 2015 was 0.67, a 40.72 percent decrease from 2014. The national average of 3.6 murders per 100,000 people is lower than most European countries.

There have been 880 homicides in Ireland since 1890. Of these, 862 were males and 28 were females. About 75 percent of all homicides involve a weapon other than a firearm. Handguns are the most common weapon used in homicides (45 percent), followed by knives (21 percent). Firearms are the weapons used to kill officers of the law (3 percent) or others not known to the victim (16 percent).

In terms of method, close to 90 percent of homicides are committed with some kind of knife. There has been a shift over time from swordstick to knife violence. In the early years of modern policing in Ireland, there were very few murders because the only police officer who could afford a sword was also allowed to use it as he saw fit. This changed when George Taylor was appointed the first detective sergeant in 1858. He carried a truncheon instead and used it to beat criminals until they told him what he wanted to know. This new breed of detective began to solve more crimes!

Does London have a higher crime rate than NYC?

If the higher figure of 134 murders is true, the murder rate in London in 2018 is 1.52 per 100,000 inhabitants. As a result, we may conclude that New York's murder rate was more than double that of London. The disparity in murders in 2019 is considerably more pronounced than in 2018. However, it must be noted that the first figure is from 2017 while the second one is from 2015-2019.

There are different ways to compare crime rates between cities. One method is to calculate the number of crimes per million people. In this case, we can say that NYC has a much lower crime rate than London because there are 20 times more people in London than in New York. This means that if London had the same population as New York, then the number of crimes would be 20 times less. Using this method, we can see that crime rates are very similar: there are about 250 crimes per million people in both London and New York.

Another method is to compare the total number of crimes in each city over a specific period of time. If we use this method to compare London with New York, we can say that London has 52 times more crimes than New York. This number shows that crime is much more common in London than in New York. There are about 6 crimes for every 10,000 people in London but only 1 crime for every 11,000 people in New York.
