We have recently been given the vehicle crime figures for Beat 8 – which covers Haddon Way, Grange Park and Shelthorpe Heights areas. The information has been gathered since April 2013, and breaks down into a number of different area :

Insecure on the street – 8 (11%)
Insecure on driveway – 52 (70%)
Break Glass/Force Door – 7 (9%)
Both Number Plates – 2 (3%)
Single Number plate – 2 (3%)
Catalytic Convertor – 2 (3%)
External – 1 (1%)

The majority of the report crimes above, occurred on the Grange Park and Shelthorpe Heights areas. We have also seen an increase in thefts from vehicles on the Haddon Way estate. We are urging people to make sure their vehicles are secure before leaving unattended. Also make sure house doors are also secure. The police have increased patrols in the area, however we can greatly reduce crime figures by doing our part.
