Please find below a table of recorded crime for Barnet.

Across London, including Barnet, the MPS are making good progress against the challenge to reduce key victim-based neighbourhood crimes by 20% by 2016. There are specific areas in every borough where performance can be improved and borough commanders, supported by an extra 2,600 officers in neighbourhoods are working to address these.

Violence with injury includes domestic violence and some of the increase may be due to increased reporting, rather than an increase in incidents. MOPAC and MPS are working to analyse this increase in order to develop an appropriate response.
