SNP MSP for Falkirk East Angus MacDonald has welcomed latest figures that show a steep decline in recorded crime across Falkirk District since the SNP came to power in 2007.

Recorded crime in the Falkirk District has fallen by 40% in the ten years between 2006/07 and 2015/16, part of a nationwide fall of 41%. Local MSP Angus MacDonald believes this shows the success of SNP policies in policing and justice.

Commenting, Angus MacDonald MSP said:

“These are welcome figures that show a steep fall in recorded crime in the period since the SNP entered office in 2007 – and shows that SNP policies, such as having more police officers, have made our communities safer.

“It is excellent to see a decline in recorded crime of 40% across the Falkirk District, part of a Scotland-wide picture that shows an overall fall of 41% since 2006/07.

“Having safe communities where everyone feels welcome are vital to creating the Scotland that we all want to see – and these figures show that, under the SNP, we have made significant progress in achieving this goal.”
