Crime
Update

Year
to date the overall crime on the City West shows a 6% reduction of reported
crimes. This equates to 389 fewer reports.

Acquisitive
Crime

Burglaries,
theft and vehicle offences are showing a healthy reduction however we still
taking regular reports of overnight thefts from motor vehicles where the
vehicle has been left unlocked. These thefts could be avoided if the car/van
are locked.

House
Burglaries are down by 22% (88 less reports).

Vehicle
offences are down by 31% (207 less reports).

Disappointingly
we are showing a year to date increase in personal robbery with 7 more reports
than we had this time last year. This is an increase of 13%. We have been
working hard in this crime area by putting in additional patrols.

ASB

Anti-Social
Behaviour continues to be a concern with only a minor decrease of 4%. Year to
date we have received 1830 reports of ASB ranging from noise complaints to off
road bikes etc. I ask that these reports continue as it allows me to put the
right resources into the right areas at the right time. We are working with our
partners to challenge ASB in all its forms.

**Please
report ASB on 101**

Court Result: Burglar
sent to prison

A man has been
jailed for four-and-a-half years after being found guilty of three burglaries
and nine frauds relating to stolen bank cards.

Michael Peck
carried out two of the burglaries at the same house in Wollaton Road, Wollaton,
within two weeks in July 2019.

Three bank cards
were taken in the first of these, on 5 July, along with an envelope containing
the pin numbers of the cards and a quantity of cash.

The 46-year-old
was later caught on CCTV fraudulently using the cards at cash machines, where
he withdrew hundreds of pounds.

In the second
break-in at the same house on 15 July, Peck was confronted by the victim who
knew him and recognised him.

He fled the scene
but police recovered CCTV which showed him carry out the burglary -including
creeping on all fours past a window - and his fingerprints were found at the
scene.
