In comparison with June 2013, we have seen a reduction in vehicle related offences where items have either been stolen from cars or vehicles being attacked. However, there has been a slight increase in serious acquisitive crime which incorporates dwelling burglary and robbery.
We would still urge all residents to remain vigilant when leaving homes to ensure all windows and doors are locked and also when leaving vehicles in public places and not to leave valuables on display too.
