Crime in Colchester

In May 2016, it was reported that Colchester town centre has the highest crime rate in Essex. According to UK Crime Stats, Colchester has a crime rate of 32.6 per 1,000 residents. On average, there have been 325 crimes per month in the town centre since December 2010.

From September 2015 to August 2016, a crime breakdown for Colchester town shows anti-social behaviour is the most common of incidents, followed by violent crime, shoplifting, other theft, and criminal damage and arson. There were 78 reported burglaries and 22 cases of robbery.

Even though some believe rising figures are due to spending cuts, an Essex police spokeswoman says Colchester remains a safe place to live and work. “The Office for National Statistics crime statistics published in September 2015 show that crime levels are much lower in Essex than they were 10 years ago, with 30,000 fewer crimes committed compared to 2005.”
