Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services (HMICFRS) has said that the members of the public are 'not bothering to report certain crimes' such as car crime.

It is believed that this is partly a result of the general public losing confidence in the ability of the police force to solve the crimes. The HMICFRS argues that the police force has faced pressure due to a decline in resources but the the police force generally is in good shape.
