Interesting Fact – Crime

According to data from 28 police forces in England and Wales, 50% of crimes reported to police are unsolved.

(The shocking figures also show that nearly three quarters of cases of theft, criminal damage and arson cases this year were classed as “investigation complete, no suspect identified”.

This doesn’t surprise me in the least.  When we lived in Bristol, we were burgled 4 times, and no one was ever caught, even though the thieves left a knife covered in oily marks that were obviously finger prints.  After that we bought a burglar alarm.)
