Police in the UK only solve 1 in 10 burglaries.
(According to crime statistics, £2 billion worth of goods have been stolen over the past 6 years, but only £137 million worth recovered.
Some newspapers are blaming the cuts in front-line-officers over the past 6 years, but there is no surprise for me here. We were broken into 4 times, and no one ever got back to us on any of the cases, including the one where the burglars left a knife covered in oily prints. (We also lived just down the road from a police station.) People being quoted in the press are saying things like “They just don’t seem to care”, well my friends, they didn’t care in the past either.)
