This is very ecouraging news and I am happy that we have such healthy employment figures. presumably then our burglary, muggging and property theft rate will go down in paralell to reflect this positive news?

Sue is that because not all crimes are recorded and therefore, it looks like there is a downward trend?. From my own experience I can tell you that is the case. However, that does not detract from the fact that our unemployment figures are on a downward trend and I think that is a very positive thing especailly for the younger population in our Borough.
