Crimes of Violence: City of Westminster

April 24, 2008

Question written on 24/04/2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many crimes involving violence against the person were recorded in the Cities of London and Westminster constituency in each of the last five years.

Answered by Vernon Coaker

Statistics are not collected specifically on a constituency basis. The Home Office does publish statistics at Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership (CDRP) area level. The number of offences of violence against the person for each of the last five years by CDRP is available on the Home Office website at:http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/rds/pdfs08/cdrpog.xlsAlso available is a look-up table that identifies which constituencies are associated with CDRPs. In many instances, a CDRP may comprise of more than one constituency. Conversely, some constituencies will come within two or more CDRPs, either wholly or partially. The look-up table is available at:http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/rds/pdfs08/cdrp-constituency-table.xlsCopies of both the statistics table and the look-up table are available in the Library.
