Crime has a negative impact on health, both for victims and perpetrators. 

PHE’s profile on crime shows that overall Trafford is predominantly better or similar to England average on most indicators. 

  • The rate of children in the youth justice system in Trafford has reduced substantially from 11.3 per 1,000 in 2010/11 to 2.8 per 1,000 in 2016/17.  The 2016/17 figure for Trafford remains statistically significantly lower than the average for England.
  • The number of first time offenders of all ages in Trafford has reduced from 483 in 2014 to 333 in 2016, and 274 in 2017, with the rate (117.0 per 100,000 population) lower than the average for England (166.4 per 100,000).
  • In Trafford in 2016/17, 20.5% of offenders re-offended, lower than the average for England (29.2%).
  • The rate of domestic abuse-related incidents and crimes for Trafford is shown as higher than the average for England; however it should be noted that the figure given for Trafford is actually the Greater Manchester average, and it is likely that the actual Trafford figure is lower than this.
  • Rates of hospital admissions for violence in Trafford have increased slightly over the last 3 reported time periods, but the rate remains statistically similar to the England average.
  • Rate of violent offences and rates of sexual offences have increased considerably in Trafford and across England, although Trafford rates tend to lower than England.  This is likely to reflect, at least to some extent, better reporting and recording.
