Crime figures in Radlett

Borehamwood Times: Crime figures in Radlett Crime figures in Radlett

Crime levels have fallen in Radlett in the last year, although vehicle crime is on the rise.

The figures, which were released at a crime safety partnership meeting on Monday, show that 1,067 crimes have been committed from March 2013 until March 2014 - which is down from 1,220 the previous year.

No serious violent crime was reported, and violent crime and robbery were down. But cases of vehicle crime rose to 45, which is 14 more cases than the previous year.

Bushey and Radlett Neighbourhood Sergeant Noel Buckley said: "We have increased high-visibility patrols, targeted known offenders and we have brought many burglars before the courts for sentencing.

"Burglars continually want to steal Asian gold, as it is easy to sell on, so we are trying to encourage families to keep their precious jewellery safe under lock and key when it is not being worn.

"We are still experiencing a problem with vehicle crime when people are leaving their valuables including Sat Navs, mobile phone and purses on display. Never leave anything in your car to tempt an opportunist thief."

"There is a lot of vehicle crime in Radlett", there certainly is with illegal parking of 4x4s wherever the owners want to stop and a very high proportion of illegal number plates trying to spell names and the police seem to turn a blind eye to this.

Asian gold? In Radlett?? I wasn't aware there was a large asian population in Radlett.

I agree about the above comment about the state of the driving by some of the 4x4 brigade though, especially with the silly number plates. - Apparently the law doesnt apply to you if you have money.
