Merseyside Police

Merseyside Police has a relatively varied patch, covering Birkenhead, Liverpool, St Helens and Southport.

Unfortunately Merseyside Police only supplied a limited amount of data for the HonestJohn.co.uk Car Crime Census, which means the average offence rate of 53 offences per 10,000 cars is extremely misleading. Indeed, Merseyside Police refused to supply any data relating to criminal damage or theft from a motor vehicle, which makes it difficult to assess how bad/good the incident rates are for these types of crime.

What we do know is Liverpool has some of the worst hotspots in the country. The city centre L1 postcode recorded 2193 incidents per 10,000 vehicles, with two out of every 10 registered cars being subjected to some form of criminal attack.  Car crimes drops dramatically as you travel north through the city, with the adjacent L2 postcode recoding 1100 comparable offences – a 50 per cent drop compared to L1.

Liverpool’s now former dockyards make up the majority of the L3 postcode and crime again takes a 50 per cent reduction, with 555 offences recorded per 10,000. It’s worth noting that much of L3 has now been converted to flats and accommodation, which makes the huge reduction in crime a testament to the area’s secure parking facilities.

The safest districts are found in Wirral, with CH61 registering 31 crimes per 10,000 cars – an incredible reduction of 98 per cent in comparison to the centre of Liverpool, which resides just 10 miles away.
