Low Percentage of Car Crimes Resulting in Charges

Posted in General News on Friday, October 20th, 2023

Data released by 39 police forces from across England and Wales in response to a freedom of information (FOI) request issued by the dashcam specialist, Nextbase indicates that between 2019 and 2022, just 6.7% of the 396,000 reported car crimes resulted in a charge. The crimes covered by this data include car theft, theft of belongings from a vehicle, and interference with a vehicle.

Nextbase claims a lack of video evidence is one of the key reasons why the police are unable to identify the criminals behind the wave of car crimes. Therefore, a new generation of car thieves are getting away with tens of thousands of cars and car parts every year.
