The following figures show the total number of police recorded offences in the South Staffordshire Community Safety Partnership for each of the last five years. Recorded crime in South Staffordshire has fallen consistently over the past five years. This is in line with the recorded crime statistics and the independent Crime Survey for England and Wales, which is based on victims' experiences rather than police figures. Both sets of data show police reform is working and crime is continuing to fall. Overall, crime has fallen under this coalition Government by more than 10% according to the Crime Survey and this is mirrored by the fall in police recorded crime since 2010.
