The UN thinks crime will increase due to economic effects of the virus.

Members of an LEO forum I lurk on are reporting noticeable increases in B&E of businesses, and of car break ins. But it's not universal (some officers noticing no change at all). My local neighborhood groups aren't reporting any increases.

I wonder if the lockdowns and travel restrictions affect the flow of illegal drugs? If so, I would expect an uptick in crime as some more desperate addicts have to find ways to pay increased prices. Just a guess though, I have no real information on this.
