Crime and Policing

Gun crime rockets across England and Wales and falls in Scotland

As knife and gun crime rockets across England and Wales and falls in Scotland, Scotland has far more police officers per head of population.  Scotland has one police officer for every 314.5 people while England and Wales have one for every 470.8 people. One policeman in England and Wales is therefore responsible for 156.3 or 49.7% more people than his/her Scottish equivalent. Violent crime is, of course, falling in Scotland.  Read more here from Thought Control Scotland.
