Monthly crime data updated

10 June 2015

What is it? The web site allows the public to see crime levels in their local area and to see what action the police and criminal justice agencies are taking. The data for February, March and April 2015 has now being added to the Wakefield Observatory for wards, the seven areas and the district as a whole.

Example statistic:Knottingley ward had the highest burglary rates in March and April 2015, at levels twice as high as the district average. This was a fairly sudden increase after an eight months of steady falls in this type of offence. Other wards have seen a similar pattern, and this will be due, in part, to more stringent crime recording practices introduced in March.
