The below table shows the number of recorded crimes on the London Underground south of the river during 2018/19.
It is important to note that there are 21 boroughs north of the river, compared to 12 boroughs south of the river. As the transport infrastructure (number of stations and London Underground lines) and passenger volumes are very different, it is not possible to make direct comparisons between levels of crime in north and south London.
London Underground remains a safe, low crime network, with very few people ever witnessing or experiencing crime. In 2018/19 there were 11.7 crimes recorded for every million passenger journeys made.
