Figures recently published by the ONS show that recorded crime in Gwent has decreased over the last year.

The figures show that 57,090 crimes were recorded in Gwent for the year ending March 2020, down from 58,536 the previous year.

This equates to around a 2% drop in the total recorded crime rate. However, there are certain crimes that have seen an increase in the number of recorded cases.

“There has been a rise in victims reporting incidents of stalking and harassment which is positive. This is usually linked to domestic abuse and shows that confidence to report these crimes to Gwent Police is increasing," said the Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent, Jeff Cuthbert.

“I was also pleased to see a rise in reported drug offences which I am reassured reflects proactive policing, and the commitment from both myself and Gwent Police to tackle serious and organised crime."

The overall statistics recorded in Gwent are:

  • Two percent decrease in total recorded crime
  • Two percent increase in recorded violent crime
  • Two percent decrease in sexual offences
  • Two percent increase in theft
