Bobbies on the Beat

In the past, we had more bobbies on the beat, and less crime (or so the rose-tinted memory serves).

Now they are saying, if there are more bobbies on the beat, there will be MORE crime??

Something wrong here...

Also, if you put more police into a particular area, won't the crims select a quieter area to perpetrate their misdeeds?

This is pointing to one thing: criminals must be much stupider than they were back in the day, despite the expansion of the prisons, where they get their education.
