Violent attacks in England and Wales are becoming less common – despite the wave of crime in & # 39; Great Britain & # 39; massacre, figures show.

Cardiff University researchers analyzed presence data from dozens of emergency room departments, walk-in centers and smaller injury departments.

They estimate that 187,584 people sought help for the injuries sustained by a violent attack throughout the year 2018.

For comparison: in the previous year 3,162 fewer people were treated for violent injuries in the two countries – almost two percent less.

The number of people needing treatment after violence has fallen by more than two fifths since 2010 (41 percent).

The statistics came from the National Violence Surveillance Network, a database with which A&E units share information for research purposes.

The authors of the study were & # 39; difficult to explain & # 39; why there is a peak in crime with a decrease in general violent injuries.

The decrease was caused by a decrease in the number of acts of violence among men, with the presence of women increasing slightly compared to the previous year.

The violence peaked in July and on Saturday and Sunday, according to the study.

Those aged 18 to 30 were most at risk, while the number of people aged 51 and older increased by 5.2 percent.

Professor Jonathan Shepherd, one of the report's authors, said: & # 39; The levels of violence in England and Wales did not change significantly between 2017 and 2018.

& # 39; The longer-term trend, however, shows a major decrease in serious violence.

The two most important official sources of crime data form a contrasting image.

Violence against the person registered by the police increased by nearly a fifth in the year to September.

But the separate Crime Survey for England and Wales showed no significant change in violence.

The Cardiff report said: & # 39; Understanding levels of violence in England and Wales is far from easy.

& # 39; Increases in violence against knives and weapons by young people, related to youth in the last two years, against the background of long-term decreases in general violence, are difficult to explain. & # 39;

The document stated individual hospitalization data demonstrates an increase in knife-related serious violence.

IS NOT A CRIME CRIME AT HIS WORST EVER LEVELS IN BRITES?

The number of criminals caught with knives or other potentially deadly weapons reached the highest level for nearly a decade last year, it was announced last month.

There were 21,484 such violations that were brought to court – but more than six in ten people arrested and treated by law were allowed to go free without serving prison sentences.

A record share of the armory cabinets were those involving people who carried or waved knives, as opposed to improvised weapons such as bottles and knuckle dusters, according to figures from the Ministry of Justice.

Professor Shepherd said: & # 39; Many factors can be responsible for the increase in weapon-related violence, including gang-related activities, increased arms use and drug use. & # 39;

It is after a 15-year-old boy was injured yesterday during a drive-by-shooting and the car used in the attack was only burned a few minutes later.

The teenager was shot in the leg during the shooting at Plaistow station in Newham, East London.

And an 18-year-old was stabbed on Wednesday in a street in Hackney, north-east London. The teenage daughter was taken to the hospital with stab wounds.

Earlier this year, a series of deadly stabs caused warnings for a & # 39; national emergency & # 39; and Theresa May to say that crime must be treated as a contagious disease.

In an attempt to stop the bloodshed, ministers announced a £ 100 million injection of money to tackle crime and relaxed rules about police stopping and search powers in hard-hit areas.

Mrs. May revealed joint plans with Prime Minister Sajid Javid, who would see that nurses, teachers, and police officers have legal duties to report potential perpetrators.

Their proposed & # 39; public health & # 39; strategy closely resembles that of Glasgow, where stab wounds have been halved in 12 years.

Potential perpetrators or victims would be referred to violence reduction units where they would receive mentoring to help change the way they work.

Hospitals treat 21 young patients every day for knife wounds and other attacks, official figures suggested last week.

At least 4,502 victims from 11 to 25 years old attended a unit of emergency care or emergency care centers with stab injuries or similar attacks.

The figures will be a huge underestimate, as only 60 percent of hospitals could provide data to MPs. The actual total for 2018 is probably around 7,600.

The statistics are obtained on the basis of the Freedom of Information Act by the group of parties dealing with crime, which represents 40 members of parliament and colleagues.

Violence in & # 39; Wild West & # 39; Great Britain has seen 69,000 children injured

Nearly 70,000 children have been injured in stabs and ill-treatment in just one year, while the violence in the streets of & # 39; Wild West & # 39; Britain is still spiral.

Jackie Sebire, assistant chief of the Bedfordshire police, revealed the shocking figures in October 2018 when she complained about the & # 39; constant flow of murders and knife attacks unfolding in the UK & # 39 ;.

Mrs. Sebire said the police have a & # 39; constant and persistent & # 39; meet demand and add: & # 39; Wild West? It may be … it happens in broad daylight, they are in public places. & # 39;

Statistics released earlier this month showed a wide range of violations that showed dramatic increases

In the year to June there were 69,000 child injuries, with a young person aged 10 to 15 years being stabbed or seriously injured, an increase of 4,000 compared to the previous year.

Mrs. Sebire, spokesman for the National Police Chiefs & # 39; Council for Serious Violent Crimes, said: & # 39; I have worked in a number of very challenging London boroughs. This is different, this level of violence, this constant flood of every day, is another sting that we seem unable to transcend. & # 39;

Police chiefs believe that they are at a turning point, after years of struggling to meet the high expectations of the public and rising demand.

Registered crime has risen by 9 percent – including an explosion of crime and theft – while 22,000 front line officers were lost.

Statistics released earlier this month show that the number of murders worldwide has risen from 630 to 719, with an overall registered crime of nearly 10%.

The number of registered violations with regard to a knife or sharp instrument, 39,332, was the highest since 2011, when comparable records started.
