For some  reason the UK government are not very forthcoming on providing these statistics, plus we have the battle of recorded crime versus reported crime and the ambiguity of the British crime Survey. if you find a reliable source we would love to know.

 

In 2002, 16,110 people were murdered in the USA.

In 1999 23,000 were killed in Colombia.

 

The Crime figure are in line with financial year, April to end of march each year.
