However, there was a fall in fraud crime, according to CSO figures.

The number of homicide, robbery and theft crimes increased significantly in the year to the second quarter of 2023.

There was an increase of more than 30 per cent in the number of homicide and related offences in the year to quarter 2..

There were 71, that's up 17 on the previous year.

More than 71 thousands incidents of theft were recorded in the same period, up 25 per cent.

Thefts from shops accounted for almost half of this increase.

A fall in the number of unauthorised transactions and attempts to obtain personal or banking information online or by phone resulted in a drop of 37 per cent in fraud crime,

The CSO figures published today are done so under reservation , meaning they don't meet the requirements of official statistics.
