North Yorkshire Police report fall in crime
8:00am Saturday 12th January 2013 in News
Crime in North Yorkshire has fallen by 8.2 per cent over the past nine months.
In real terms, this means there were 2,433 fewer victims of crime, compared to the same April to December period in 2011.
So far in the current financial year, there have been 27,388 recorded crimes.
Temporary Chief Constable Tim Madgwick said: “My wholehearted commitment to the people of North Yorkshire and the City of York is to lead a relentless pursuit of criminals and those who commit anti-social behaviour.
“Working closely with councils and other key partners, we are using every available tool at our disposal to increase safety and improve the quality of life in our communities.
“I look forward to working with residents and the highly committed members of the Watch schemes. Together, we are making a real difference.”
