CRIME

A crime is an act that breaks a law in that country.  There are many different types of crime such as forgery, vandalism, armed robbery, burglary, domestic violence, fraud, handling stolen goods, murder, crime offence, environmental crime, terrorism and car theft.  All types of crime affect the community, taxes could be made higher because of an offender going into prison or money to help the victim to get back on their feet.

Ways that crime can be stopped are by having more police out on the streets at night to stop drunk people from offending whilst they are in their own world.  Use more security cameras around the UK and the world, so they can catch offenders in the act.
