THE year ended with the lowest crime levels ever recorded in the region, West Midlands Police have said.
There were 13,811 offences in December - almost 1,000 less than the previous lowest in a month in September and around 800 less than December 2011.
Assistant Chief Constable Garry Forsyth said: "December saw sustained rainfall and we accept that the rain will have helped deter some offences being committed, but the weather alone does not account for the steady and sustained reductions documented over the course of the last few months and the past decade as a whole."
