For Q2 (based on a rolling 12 months) total recorded crime offences excluding fraud was 50.3 per 1000 population. The mean is 68. This is a considerable reduction on the Q1 figure and reflects a drop in recorded offences across all of the South East (ADASS) region for the same period.

Crimes per 1000 population for West Sussex as at end of June 2018 based on a rolling 12 months is 61.2.

So, whilst the figure has increased from the last quarter we are still well under the average for the area and still on track in terms of the 2022 target.
The increase in crime is reflected nationally and is in part due to changes in recording practices for some crimes and an increase in the recording of some violent crime offences that were not previously recorded.
