It is not surprising that many people are worried by crime, after all it is all over the TV, news and all types of media. However, many others are not concerned, the comments of presenters of programmes like Crime Watch saying that the crimes shown are very rare, thus easing their fears.
Of course, some crimes are more common than others and some areas are also more prone to crime of all types.
Should You Be Worried?
Should you be worried about the crime in your area? Do you know how much crime occurs in your area and what types are more prevalent?
