We are very pleased to report that over the last five years recorded crime in the North Yorkshire area has fallen by 29% when compared to the 2006/07 figure, which is over 15,600 fewer crimes from April 2007 to March 2012 and makes this one of the safest areas in England and Wales. All our planning and efforts have been focussed on achieving results like these.
