I am pleased to say that in the recent Annual Community Safety report for 2012/13 crime is down. In my Ward burglary is down 32% from the previous year, Criminal Damage down 21% and theft from and of vehicles is down 24%. More needs to be done because just one victim of crime or anti-social behaviour is one too many. Victims of crime need to see that something is being done to reduce crime and the fear of it in the community. They also want to know that the perpetrators are being caught and dealt with through the courts.
