Police crime stats show drop in 2015

Looking at back at crime last year and there was a drop.

Overall crime has decreased country wide by seven per cent compared to 2014.

And armed robberies Is down, so too. is the amount of burglars.

But one of Cayman’s top cops says this is no time to be complacent., and this year, more hard work is needed to keep crime at bay.

“In 2016 we will place emphasis again on burglary and robbery throughout the year,” said Chief Superintendent Kurt Walton.

“Just seeing a drop in burglary overall, that’s 43 less victims in 2015. That was certainly welcome.

“I think this is as a result of a lot of hard work by our skilled detectives and the amount of individuals we arrested over 2015 that saw serial burglars and a number of other individual for robbery taken off the streets.”

Overall crime is down by seven percent, burglaries dropped by six per cent, robberies 17 percent. Serious crime down three per cent, and violent crime saw a thirteen per cent reduction compared to 2014.
