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.’

– Juan Watterson MHK, Home Affairs Minister
