Many thanks for all of you who have helped us with our recent Community Priority Survey. We received 634 replies, which is an amazing return. Many of you remain understandably very concerned about burglaries, theft from motor vehicles and criminal damage within your local area. I accept that these are areas that we must be fully aware of, but I am also aware that reporting of all three types of these offences appears to be lower than the figures in our last quarterly review.

In making a decision on what type of crime we should focus on in your local area, I have to use the resources I have in the most effective way I can. I also have also have to look at what our own, wider priorities are and what our current figures tell us about crime in Popley and Norden. While crimes of violence or serious harm still remain relatively low in Basingstoke, our principal focus, as you may well be aware, centres on preventing the most serious types of violent offences, whether they are linked to knives, drugs, domestic violence, the sexual and criminal exploitation of children and the protection of other types of vulnerable people, such as those who are repeatedly being reported as missing.

Given this, I have decided that focus for this quarter in Popley and Norden will aim to reduce the overall number of violent offences resulting in injuries to victims. Please do continue to report all types of crime. Your local beat officers will continue to act to reduce the number of all types of offences in your local area and we will continue to monitor any emerging trends in offences.
