The Town Council is pleased to see that local crime in the Parish has decreased over recent months.
However many suspected crimes are not reported to the Police.
Reports must be made of ALL crime or suspected crime that occurs in the village. Over a number of years until recent months there was a marked increase in crime including Anti-social behaviour, criminal damage, drug dealing and burglary.
We are all responsible for reporting crime as this increases the chances of the offenders being caught and brought to justice.
The Parish Council has been made aware of an INCREASE in crime in the village.
Unfortunately many of these reports are never made to the Police, so we have a disconnect in the level of Police attendance.
Reports must be made of ALL crime that occurs in the village. There has been a marked increase in crime including Anti-social behaviour, criminal damage, drug dealing, and burglary. We are all responsible, reporting a crime means the chances increase of the offender being caught and bought to justice.
The Police keep records of all crimes and this information goes into the government statistics and can help to change the way crime is dealt with. Do your bit and report crime.
