The local Police at the Town Council reported that from 1st Dec 2010 to 7th Jan 2011 recorded crimes were 120. Last year the figure was 172. This is good news but especially as there was a reduction in violence towards the person which is usually higher in the Christmas/New Year period.
At the same time when asked about the local CCTV, local Police reported that the volunteer scheme helping with monitoring during the day was having a very good response, successes and the overall CCTV system is very effective. There are some who forget the system has been upgraded recently and that we delivered our manifesto commitment to bring monitoring to our local station rather than in a centre in Ipswich.Leave a comment
