Woking Shows a Reduction in Crime

 

I have the great pleasure of reporting that from the start of April 2011 through to the end of March 2012 there has been an 8.2% reduction in overall crime across the borough compared to April 2010 through to March 2011.

 

Not only do I believe that this is down to all of the officers and staff that help to police the area I also believe it is down to the continuing commitment shown by Neighbourhood Watch coordinators and scheme members.

 

As we now enter the next financial year we have a tough target to reduce these levels even further; but I believe we can do it!

 

Can I please ask you all to keep up the fantastic work you are doing in your schemes. Neighbourhood Watch is a proven deterrent to crime and to meet our target next year we really need to support its development even further. If you have roads around you that are not part of a scheme consider encouraging the residents that live there to start a new watch. In my opinion a cohesive network of watches will work better that isolated watches acting alone. If you wish to discuss how to go about helping to set up new watches around you please call me on 01483 632931.

 

Can you please circulate the details of the crimes to the members of your watch if you think it will be of value. Remember that if you have elderly or vulnerable residents in your road this information may frighten them so be careful how you deliver this message.

 

Yours Sincerely
