It has become a worrisome trend in recent times on at the rate at which crime increases globally. (Sentence structure is NOT GOOD. Rapidly increasing crime rate has become a worrisome trend throughout the world.)

It is also believed that with this trend, that the whole world will go into doom in no distant time.
