Crime hits 23 year low as murders plummet - Daily Telegraph

Crime hits 23 year low as murders plummet - Daily Telegraph

“I don’t think there’s any dispute that security has played a major role in that, in terms of domestic security — window locks, alarms, etc — and certainly in relation to vehicles, with immobilisers, deadlocks, et cetera,” he said.

A total of 550 homicides, which include murder, manslaughter and infanticide, were recorded — down 14 per cent on the year and the lowest level since 1983. Mr Flatley said: “Over two-thirds of homicides are committed by partners, ex-partners or other family members and that is what’s driving the change. I haven’t got an explanation as to what’s causing that.”

Home Office figures in January showed incidents of domestic violence at their lowest for six years.

Yesterday’s separate figures in the CSEW, which used to be called the British Crime Survey and is based on a survey of 40,000 households, revealed 625,000 pickpocketing offences last year — up 17 per cent on 2009-10. Thefts from sheds and gardens as well as bag snatches have also increased, adding to concern that the economic downturn is driving up low-level, acquisitive crime.

There were more than a million incidents of other personal theft, such as stealing a mobile phone or bag from pub or restaurant, a 10 per cent rise on the previous year, according to the survey. Thefts from sheds and gardens stood at 1.4 million — another 10 per cent increase. Around half involved garden furniture.

The fall in crime comes as police are facing budget cuts of up to 20 per cent and rank and file officers have warned offences will rise.

Nick Herbert, the policing minister, said: “Today’s figures show that, despite the challenge of reducing police budgets, crime has continued to fall.

“They give the lie to the spurious claim that there is a simple link between

overall police numbers and the crime rate.

“Police forces should be congratulated for continuing to drive down crime and maintaining their service to the public while saving money.”


Restaurant Furniture Canada Helps McNally’s Billiards in Labrador City Upgrade its Seating with New Bar Stools and Chairs - PRWeb

Metal stack chairs

(PRWEB) July 20, 2012

Restaurant Furniture Canada recently solidified its standing as Canada's leading manufacturer and distributor of commercial restaurant furniture by helping McNally's Billiards in Labrador City update its design with stylish and comfortable new chairs and bar stools.

Carl Pike, the owner of all four McNally's locations in Newfoundland and Labrador, turned to Restaurant Furniture Canada when the time had come to refurbish his Labrador City branch because of the restaurant furniture supplier's reputation for providing Canadian businesses with prompt and efficient service.

"Carl was looking for durability, affordability, quick delivery and a customer service team that would work with him and help him meet his needs," Restaurant Furniture Canada salesman Zach K. explained. "Because we specialize in shipping to Canadian establishments, we offer the best delivery in the business. He also liked that our chairs and bar stools came fully assembled and ready to go, so he could put them to work in McNally's immediately."

Operating since 1997, with locations in Goose Bay, Carbonear, Mount Pearl and Labrador City, McNally's offers its customers a chance to have a cold refreshment while playing billiards, Texas hold ‘em, darts and cribbage, as well as a place to dance to bands. McNally's chose Restaurant Furniture Canada's Swivel X Metal Bar Stool with 5-Interweave Amethyst Fabric seat and black frame finish for seating at its bar and high top tables. Restaurant Furniture Canada offers the stool, on sale for $69, in a number of frame finishes, as well as with either a wooden seat or a variety of fabric and vinyl choices.

For seating at its card and game tables, McNally's went with Restaurant Furniture Canada's Metal Stack Chair with a Copper Vein Frame and Dark Red Fabric. Selling for $30, the chair is built to withstand heavy commercial use and provide long-lasting comfort. "Carl wanted chairs that were extremely durable and comfortable, but that could also be conveniently moved around his venue and stacked. We found the right fabric to fit his venue and sent them out. These chairs are going to last him a long time," Zach K. stated.

With four successful McNally's locations, Carl Pike understands the importance of smart, efficient planning and the necessity of good long-term investments. That is the reason he chose Restaurant Furniture Canada. "The Labrador City location just ordered chairs and bar stools from Restaurant Furniture Canada and are very pleased with the product and the service provided," he said.
