The recent terrorist attrocities in Manchester and London highlight the value of taking personal responsibility for the community in which we live. Community responsibility includes cooperation, respect and participation. The concept goes beyond thinking and acting as individuals to sharing and protecting common beliefs about interests and life.  We all have more in common than we think, whatever our individual beliefs and cultures may be.

The police and the security and intelligence agencies depend on information from you. Be our eyes and ears and help keep yourself, your family and your local community safe by looking out for suspicious activity and reporting it to the police, in confidence.

You may see or hear something that could be that vital piece of information needed to stop a terrorist attack.

Crime Survey

If you are worrying about being a victim of crime, and there seem to be more stories in the media every day, bear in mind findings from the 2011/12 Crime Survey for England and Wales indicated that 6 out of every 100 adults aged 16 and over experienced a crime against the person in the previous 12 months (5.9%), while 16 out of every 100 households experienced some type of household crime (16.2%) covered by the survey.

These prevalence rates were substantially lower than those measured by the CSEW in the mid-1990s.

 

Bear in mind that:

 

Young people most likely to be victims of violent crime

Those aged 16-24 are more likely to be victims of theft

Vandalism is the most commonly experienced crime
