SNP MSP for Clydesdale, Aileen Campbell has welcomed latest figures that show a steep decline in recorded crime across South Lanarkshire since the SNP came to power in 2007.


Recorded crime in South Lanarkshire has fallen by 37% in the ten years between 2006/07 and 2015/16, part of a nationwide fall. Clydesdale MSP Aileen Campbell believes this shows the success of SNP policies in policing and justice.


Commenting, Aileen 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 37% across South Lanarkshire.


“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.”
