Crime Continues To Fall In Cheshire
The latest crime statistics released show that crime continues to fall in Cheshire, with the county recording the 3rd largest reduction in crime across England and Wales.
Figures released on 22nd January 2015 for the 12 months ending September 2014 show an overall reduction in crime of 7% compared to the previous 12 months.
Deputy Chief Constable Janette McCormick said: "Acquisitive crimes such as shoplifting, theft, robbery and burglary have all fallen during this reporting period. However, we are not being complacent. In the build-up to Christmas, we ran the campaign 'Blue Christmas' which encouraged residents to think about protecting their property and valuables in order to reduce the risk of becoming a victim of crime, through re-thinking about the security of their own home and vehicle and also through promoting property marking."
