Daily Echo: Police winning war against the cirminals Police winning war against the cirminals

Police across Hampshire are winning the war against crime.

Figures show that in areas of Southampton, Eastleigh, Romsey and the New Forest – crime is falling.

In the past 18 months there have been almost 6,000 fewer crimes compared to the 18 months before that.

And in the past six months alone the statistics show there have been 3,763 less incidents compared to the same six months last year.

They also show that violent crime has dropped, as have burglary and sex offences.

The figures come as police cntinue their Operation Fortress - a crackdown on violent drug crime across the county.

really,yesterday 20 youths beat up 3 youths near where i live yet by time they got here the 3 youths had fled and not found and the 20 moved on.
on other times cars have been damaged,footballs kicked at people walking by and ambulances driving by yet when the police turn up they say they dont have the power to stop this.
the kids carry knives yet are not searched,smoke drugs and drink openly and nothing is done.when will the real figures come out or is that too much to ask ?

Of course reported crime is going down, that's why 101 was introduced. I will not waste money on reporting a crime that I know will probably not be solved or even in many cases investigated properly, and I know I am not alone in this. I am not blaming our hard working police service, just the politicians that have been letting us all down for many years whilst they look after the rights of offenders.

It says crime is going down. Nowhere does it say "all crime eliminated".

And I'll say again, only in simpler terms because apparently you missed it:

The existence of crime does not mean the crime figures aren't dropping.

I see it rained the other day. Guess that means the climate is getting colder.

i say again but this time i think you must be working in parliment to long so you have learnt to dodge the question if crime is going down as stated why is it still high in southampton (local police i speak to say this daily)its all about how the figures are used.even yesterday as the echo reported a gun crime was commited so answer that ?

The fact that it's HIGH doesn't mean it isn't REDUCING. God, this is basic mathematics.

How am I dodging the question? You're asking "if crime figures are dropping, why was there a crime yesterday?" and I'm answering, for the fourth time now, because crime being reduced is not the same thing as crime being eliminated. Do I need to draw you a picture?
