Theresa May writes on cutting crime

Home Secretary Theresa May writes:
"Everyone has the right to be safe in their communities. So when we came into power, we swept away the bureaucracy that had been holding back the police, and gave them just one target: cutting crime.
"They have risen to the challenge. The latest figures show that crime is down by more than ten percent since 2010, at its lowest level since records began. England and Wales are safer than they have been for decades.
"Labour said that we couldn’t cut crime and reduce spending at the same time. They were wrong. Police reform is working and crime is falling.

I dont really think its wise for politicians and governments to take the credit because people are not committing so much crime.
Nor do i Think its right to blame the government when crime rates rise.
Though I do at times think politicians and Bankers are some of the biggest criminals around.
