Crime Down in Ravenscourt Ward

The November Newsletter from the Ravenscourt Safer Neighbourhood Police team confirms that crime is down in the ward, comparing the periods of April/October 2012 to April/October 2013. Burglary fell by 18%, theft from motor vehicles fell by 23%, theft of cycles fell by 49%. Robbery was down by 30% and total notifiable offences down 28%. The newsletter also reports on arrests – one of a persistent thief believed to be potentially responsible for a large proportion of the recent spike in theft from motor vehicles and the other in Hamlet Gardens of an ‘over-stayer’ to the UK wanted for immigration offences and fraud. The newsletter also carries yet more useful advice on seasonal security. See attached newsletter.
