As noted in the reply to MQ 2735/12, the total reported crime figures for the period 2000-2003 in the Royal Parks were obtained from hardcopy archives of the Royal Parks Constabulary Chief Officer's Annual Reports. Those reports do not breakdown the total figures into figures per park for each of those years.

However, the types of crimes reported for the period 2000-2003 across the whole of the Royal Parks were as follows:

2000/2001 2001/2002 2002/2003 VIOLENCE AGAINST THE PERSON Serious assault 12 17 8 Common assault 47 23 25 Police assault 3 1 1 Other 12 6 7 SEXUAL OFFENCES Rape 1 Nil Nil Indecent assault 11 5 5 Indecent exposure 7 7 4 Other indecency offences 1 Nil 5 CRIMINAL DAMAGE Arson 1 3 3 Criminal Damage 59 62 61 MOTOR VEHICLE/CYCLE OFFENCES Theft of motor vehicles 16 3 5 Theft from motor vehicles 54 80 50 Criminal damage to motor vehicles 19 Nil Nil Interference with motor vehicles Nil 7 3 Theft of pedal cycles Nil 8 4 THEFT ACT OFFENCES Burglary 33 35 33 Robbery 33 38 33 Theft person (snatch/ pickpocket) 137 19 44 Going equipped Nil 4 1 Other Theft Act offences 105 140 135 PUBLIC DISORDER OFFENCES 7 6 8 FRAUD/FORGERY Nil 2 2 DRUG OFFENCES Trafficking in controlled drugs Nil 4 2 Possession of controlled drugs 44 20 26 FIREARMS OFFENCES 1 Nil Nil TOTAL REPORTED CRIME 603 490 465
