Policy Exchange and Take No More Research

5 March 2015

Policy Exchange have today issued a report that shows that property crime has almost been “decriminalised” as the police and courts are turning a blind eye to an “epidemic” sweeping Britain.

One in three burglaries and nine in 10 shoplifting cases are not even reported to police, despite theft, burglary and shoplifting accounting for three-quarters of all crime. Half of burglary victims did not hear back from the police after reporting the crime.

David Lammy, a Labour MP and former minister who compiled the report, said: “There is no such thing as a ‘victimless crime’; it is a damaging myth that needs to be dispensed with. The perception that only violent crimes have victims is inaccurate.”
