National Crime and Policing Measures

North Yorkshire Police – 12 months to end of June 2022

The National Crime and Policing Measures (NCPM) are to reduce neighbourhood crime, reduce murder and other homicide, reduce serious violence, disrupt drugs supply and county lines, tackle cyber-crime, and improve satisfaction among victims (with a focus on victims of domestic abuse).

Reduce Neighbourhood Crime

  • Theft of or from Vehicles
    There were 1627 thefts of or from vehicles between July 2021 and June 2022. This is a reduction of 28% against the NCPM baseline (Jul18-Jun19).
  • Residential Burglary
    There were 1371 residential burglaries between July 2021 and June 2022. This is a reduction of 44% against the NCPM baseline.
  • Theft from Person
    There were 286 thefts from people between July 2021 and June 2022. This is a reduction of 43% against the NCPM baseline.
  • Personal Robbery
    There were 244 personal robberies between July 2021 and June 2022. This is an increase of 19% against the NCPM baseline.  Volumes remain very low. (The increase is around one per week).

The rates of all types of neighbourhood crime are below the national average.

Reduce Murder and other Homicide

Murder, Manslaughter, Corporate Manslaughter and Infanticide

There were 12 homicides between July 2021 and June 2022. This is an increase of 300% against the NCPM baseline. North Yorkshire has always had a low rate of homicides and small numeric increases generate large % rises. The rate for the past 12 months is just above the national average

Offences have been linked to either criminal activity or domestic settings. The force recognises this and has implemented preventative measures.

The proportion of offenders brought to justice in the 12 months to the end of December 2021 is above the national average.

Reduce Serious Violence

  • Knife Crime
    There were 331 crimes with the use or threat of a knife in the 12 months to March 2022, an increase of 4% from the NCPM baseline.
  • Gun Crime
    There were 42 crimes with the use or threat of a shotgun, ball bearing gun, air weapon or firearm in the 12 months to March 2022. This is a fall of 28% from the previous year.

Disrupt Drugs Supply and County Lines

  • Production and Supply of Drugs
    There were 319 drug trafficking crimes between July 2021 and June 2022. The increase of 21% against the NCPM baseline reflects police proactivity.
  • County Lines
    10 Organised Crime Groups are being targeted to disrupt County Lines activity.

Tackle Cyber-crime

Cyber-enabled crime

Cyber-enabled crime is not a crime type in its own right but a method by which other crimes such as fraud and harassment are committed.

There were 4926 cyber-crimes recorded between July 2021 and June 2022. This is an increase of 157% against the NCPM baseline.

Improve Victim Satisfaction

Domestic Abuse Victim Survey

83% of the victims of domestic abuse surveyed on behalf of North Yorkshire Police between April 2021 and March 2022 were satisfied with the service provided. 40% were completely satisfied with a further 31% very satisfied.
