Lights off - will crime increase?

Every week I read about a certain amount of crime taking place.

Now I ask myself why certain street lights have been turned off.

Surely we will experience more problems!

I have already noticed the graffiti which has well and truly marked at the end of the Colony subway wall for all to see. This is only since all The Colony lights were switched off.

I wonder what other crimes will now go on. With no CCTV and no lights, how can such culprits be caught?
