Title: Thames Valley Police
Post by: Roger on February 15, 2018, 04:32:42 PM
I saw this in the papers today, frightening.

“Inspectors who are reviewing crime data for every force in England found that at Thames Valley Police, one of the country’s largest forces, 35,200 crimes were not recorded per year. The force has been graded “inadequate” at recording crime by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services, which found only about 80 per cent of crimes to be reported were recorded.”

Stupid question - how do they now they were reported if they weren't recorded?

Because they were recorded as "crime Incidents" instead of being classified as crimes. Crime recorders are directed by managers and supervisors through the management chain and training as to which crimes to record straight away at time of reporting. Some are directed to be recorded after investigation.
