Police "Solving too few crimes"

The Police are not solving enough crimes according to MPs, with only 19% of reported crimes leading to an offender being punished by the courts!! If you really want to know why this is, check out The Policeman's blog. The Home Office aims to raise the figure to 25% by 2008(!?!), this still seems to low to me!! Admittedly, it will never be 100% what with those pesky arsonists destroying evidence by burning out cars, however, a 30% target in 2005 following three years of reforms should be expected.

Of course, once they are brought to justice, the chances of any real punishment seem remote, but that maybe a discussion for another day.
