According to this report our crime levels are the lowest since 1996. Bit odd really since we do not feel as safe, the police are out more often, the tyres and sirens are squealing and we are saying things like - I wouldn't go there at night. It used to be Hindley Street youd' be a bit worried about and you'd plan the outing if you went there at night. Now we cross off a lot of places and include them as day time only visits. More things are being stolen, more people are being attacked, most of us feel unsafe...so the crime may be down but we are not feeling secure. Perhaps we have imagined it all?
