Dilnot questions crime figures

January 16, 2014 9:31 am

Government’s statistics watchdog has said police crime figures are unreliable. The head of the UK Statistics Authority, Sir Andrew Dilnot, told the Public Administration Select Committee police data that overstating figures was “ingrained in policing culture”. Sir Andrew pointed to a warning from the Office for National Statistics that police records appear to ‘overstate the true rate at which crime has been falling’ by failing to take into account hundreds of thousands of offences.
