The Liberal Democrats will today (28th May 2024) announce their plans for a Burglary

unsolved burglaries in local areas across England and Wales.
The figures were compiled from a series of Freedom of Information requests by the party,
which have broken down unsolved burglaries data by local area. 
The percentage of burglaries that went unsolved in West Northants in 2023 was 74%. 
Of the 1901 cases, 1400 had their investigation completed with no suspect identified. 
Nationally, official government figures show that nearly 76% of burglaries went unsolved in
It comes as Liberal Democrat Leader, Ed Davey, has announced his plans to include a
Burglary Response Guarantee in his party’s manifesto. The party’s proposals would
ensure that all domestic burglaries are attended by the police and properly investigated. 
Commenting, Liberal Democrat Jonathan Harris, Parliamentary Candidate for the Daventry
area said: 
“Too many families in West Northamptonshire now feel unsafe in their own homes
because this Conservative Government has decimated frontline policing for too long.
Victims are being denied justice because Conservative ministers can’t even get the basics
right on solving crime. That is why the Liberal Democrats would deliver a Burglary
Response Guarantee, to ensure all home burglaries are attended by the police and
properly investigated.
People are sick of seeing their local communities plagued by crime and just want this
appalling Conservative government to be kicked out of office.”
