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."
