February Crime Figures for Bulwell and Bulwell Forest

Alert message sent 07/03/2012 16:24:00
Information sent on behalf of Nottinghamshire Police
February Crime Figures for Bulwell and Bulwell Forest

February proved a good month in relation to crime figures particularly with regard to burglary (31.3% reduction over February 2011) and robbery (22.2% reduction over February 2011). Vehicle crime was up but still shows an overall reduction over the year. Much of the vehicle crime related to theft of number plates and this is a trend being seen across the city. Taking these crime types together offences of serious acquisitive crime continue to show a reduction over the last year (currently a 10.3% reduction).
 
Other crime types showed a similar downward trend over the figures for the same period last year, although offences of theft showed an increase of 36.7%. This is largely due to a spate of thefts of lead and metals from dwelling houses and an increase in theft from shops outside of the town centre. We have an operation this week targeting persons responsible for theft of lead and metals and this is taking the form of high visibility patrols in identified crime hotspots, re-visits to previous victims with crime prevention advice and Smartwater being offered, and visits to previous offenders. The rise in shop theft is believed due to targeted work aimed at preventing offences in the town centre that has forced offenders out of the town, and work is now ongoing to assist those shops that are currently being targeted.
 
Should you have any information of assistance in relation to any of the above crimes or indeed any crime issue, please do not hesitate to contact the Bulwell Safer Neighbourhood Team either through the normal channels, or by ringing 101 and asking for the Bulwell Safer Neighbourhood Team, or by contacting Crime Stoppers on 0800 555111.
 
Thank you,
 
Andy Goodall,
Neighbourhood Policing Inspector for Bulwell and Bulwell Forest.
