Isle of Man crime figures

Home Affairs Minister Juan Watterson MHK has praised the effectiveness of the Isle of Man Constabulary following evidence of another significant decrease in the level of recorded crime.

Levels of crime fall on the Isle of Man

New figures reveal that recorded crime has fallen on the Isle of Man. The crime rate is already at a 30 year low and statistics indicate that it fell by a further 15.8% during 2012-13, with substantial reductions across the force area.

‘As well as helping residents to feel secure in their local neighbourhoods, maintaining a low level of crime supports Government’s national priority of growing the economy. A safe environment and good quality of life are important factors in terms of attracting new businesses, key workers and visitors to the Island.’
