Crime Of The Gentry


As quite a few people around this neck of the garden county will be able confirm, Wicklow’s gardaí have a pretty bad track record when it comes to catching burglars.

So bad, in fact, that, according to the latest figures from the Central Statistics Office, we’re the worst county in the country for unsolved cases in this field.

We’re not doing so hot when it comes to robberies and thefts either, getting a below-average score alongside Kildare and Meath

Bottom of the class though was in Dublin, where one of the six garda divisions had the lowest detection rates for the majority of crime categories.

According to those CSO figures, nationally, just 33% of thefts, on average, were solved. Wicklow, along with five of the Dublin divisions, fell below this figure.
