Here you can find over 100 infographics, many professional but dozens of them created by myself, to help you quickly digest complex issues and share the findings in an easy visual source with colleagues or students. If you’re looking for something in particular, try the search box below:
As you can see the murder rate in the UK is the same as that in France and Ireland but substantially higher than that in Germany and Spain. The main standout fact is that Black US citizens are almost 8 times more likely to be murdered than their white fellow citizens.
Chief Constable Alex Marshall (the chief exec of the College of Policing) argues that the changing mix of crime means that over the past 10 years, investigating and preventing crime is become more complex with crime such as child abuse and domestic violence taking up much more police time.
IDPC argues that women drug users experience greater stigma and discrimination, as they are often perceived to be ‘fallen women’. Their lack of decision-making power and economic resources, as well as vulnerability to physical and sexual violence heightens the risk of HIV, Hep C and other blood-borne viruses.
Following the recent depressing inspection report that found British criminal justice agencies are doing very little to tackle disability hate crime, I thought it might be interesting to look more generally at the prevalence of hate crime within the European Union. As you can see, even with the acknowledged under-reporting of hate crimes, the figures are extremely worrying.
£2.3 billion was cut from police budgets in the five years since 2010/11 – a cut of between 12% and 23% for individual police forces. These figures are from the recent (4 June 2015) National Audit Office report: “Financial sustainability of police forces in England and Wales”. NAO reports are invaluable, in my opinion, because the organisation has no political axe to grind and merely examines costs and performance as fairly as possible.
We know that crime rates have been falling steadily over the last 20 years but what about other trends in the criminal justice system. The MoJ has just (21 May 2015) published its report on activity in the criminal justice system for 2014. The total number of individuals dealt with formally by the CJS hit an all time low at 1.73 million.
We all know that huge technology companies keep track of us, but somehow we never quite imagine the full extent and detail of what they know about us. The infographic below from backgroundchecks.org is educational to say the least:
The infographic provides an outline of the different types of abuse, the scale of the problem – along with some myths debunked and the legal action which can be taken against the perpetrators. The key message is that there are now many agencies which can support victims of domestic abuse to take legal and practical steps to end their abuse.
