Ireland’s crime and victimisation stats for 2015 were recently revealed by the Central Statistics Office (CSO). Dublin had the highest number of households that were affected by crime, with 13% of homes falling victim to a crime in 2015.
The midlands and the South-West both had the second highest number, with a respective 9% of families fallen victim to criminality.
The safest part of the country remains the West of Ireland, which recorded just 3% of their households involved in a crime.
Worryingly, almost half of all burglaries occurred when someone was in their own home. Although, thankfully this did decrease by 6% from 2003.
8% of all Irish houses experienced some sort of crime, with burglary and theft the highest type, with 3% of households in the Republic fallen victim to one of these misconducts.
62% of overall household crimes were reported to the Gardaí. People who were burgled were more likely to report the incident, with 73% of burglaries reported to the Gardaí.
