The following graph represents the various levels in the three main areas of crime in Newport
city center over a ten-year period from 2003 to 2012. Overall, the rate of burglary fell
significantly, the level of robbery remained fairly constant, whereas car theft raised and had the
biggest number of incidences in 2012.
To begin with, burglary reached its peak in 2003 and 2004, which were followed by 3400 and
3750 incidences of burglary respectively. Fortunately, there was a dramatic fall in the number of
burglary incidences taking place in the next 4 years and reached the absolute minimum with
1100 incidences being witnessed in 2008. However, this figure then grew again by 300 and
remained fairly constant by 2012.
It was clear to see that the level of crime in car theft remained steady from 2003 to 2004. In the
next 5 years, it got reduced from 2700 up to 2250. Then, there was an increase in this number in
2012 with 2700 series of car theft.
The final figure was for robbery. Robbery reached its peak in 2005, which was approximately
900 cases, but after that decreased back to 500 in 2008. In the following two years, this number
of incidences rose to 700 and continued to stay at this level in 2012.
