Are there any important statistics about the population of Addlestone?

In general, do people commit a lot of crime in Addlestone?

In Addlestone, for every 1000 people, there is currently a crime rate of 10400%. This can be compared to the national average of 79.52 for every 1000 people.

Low crime rates are desirable for your safety as a homeowner. Even if you don’t tend to leave the house too often and tend to not mind living in a slightly more dangerous area. Things like burglaries are always a possibility which could harm your ability to pay for home insurance and also may force you to install additional security in your home that can cost you further.

Having said this, you can look at the crime rate on a deeper level to find out what the threats are exactly. It could be the case that a proportion of these crimes (10400% for every 1000 people) come from things like anti-social behaviour rather than more serious crimes like violence and sexual offences.

If this is the case you may be more willing to look over a high crime rate within the areas you’re looking to buy a home.
