Shocking Statistics

Young people can often be complacent about their risks. In order for young people to lead confident, safe lives, it is important that they are aware of the risks that they may face. Statistics can be an effective way of challenging young people’s preconceptions about crime and their specific risk of becoming a victim.

Statistics from the British Crime Survey 2005:

        10-15% of crimes involve violence against people.

        2/3 of crime towards us are committed by someone we know.

        Across all age ranges, men are twice as likely to be a victim of violent crime than females.

        23% of all violent crime victims are under 23.

        2% of all violent crime victims were over 65.

        In half of all street robberies, a mobile phone is taken.

        14-17 year olds are the most at risk of street crime.
