In The Media & Newsletter » Margot Parker MEP - letter to the Lincolnshire media on crime
To The Editor,
I was most concerned to read that thousands of crimes, including sexual offences and rape, have gone unrecorded by Lincolnshire police force.
Figures showed Lincolnshire Police failed to record 9,400 crimes, nearly a fifth of the total, in 2017.
It has blamed procedural errors and no offenders were 'missed' but the report by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services is extremely worrying.
The police work under difficult circumstances and ever-tightening financial constraints but this matter must be addressed urgently - the public has to have confidence in our police force.
Margot Parker, MEP for Lincolnshire
