The Cost-of-Living Crisis vs Crime Rates: How To Stay Safe

cost of living crisis

With inflation soaring and a looming recession, crime in the UK is growing

Ever-rising costs, financial instability and increasing uncertainty often leads to high amounts of anxiety and desperation. As a result of this, police forces are preparing themselves for a surge in crime rates and general civil unrest.

There are widespread fears that boys and young men especially may be lured or coaxed into gangs, seeing it as a way to generate much-needed income in dire economic times. With this in mind, burglaries are also set to increase.

And It’s not just urban areas that are seeing an uptick in crime. The cost-of-living crisis has also had a big impact on rural crime, with farmers’ vehicles and fuel being stolen.
