Please find below a table of recorded crime for Camden. MOPAC does not set any specific targets on Domestic Violence. Domestic Violence has historically been significantly under reported.

MOPAC is keen to see increased reporting across all forms of Violence against Women and Girls. Please be aware that increased reporting of domestic offences may reflect increased confidence, rather than an increase in incidents.
