Crime falls by 7% in Wiltshire

Police in Wiltshire are welcoming latest national crime figures which reveal it has dropped by 7% in the county, meaning around 3,300 fewer victims of crime.

In addition, there has been a reduction of 46.5% in robberies in the county, which is the largest reduction seen nationally.

Vehicle crime has fallen by 16% compared to a national drop of 5.4%.

Currently Wiltshire's crime rate is the seventh lowest in England.

These statistics illustrate that the hard work of my police officers and staff is effective.

However, we could not achieve these reductions without the assistance of the public.

I continue to encourage the communities of Wiltshire to keep talking, to me and the Commissioner, about the issues they care about.

I am committed to a way of working that listens to what is important to the communities that live and work in Wiltshire.

Working together with the public, we can continue to see these reductions in crime and protect the quality of life for everyone in this beautiful county.

Police ask swimmers to take care during hot weather

Wiltshire Police are asking the public to take care when using lakes and rivers in the county during the hot weather.

The depth of the water can be deceiving and even experienced swimmers can get into difficulty.

There may be hidden dangers such as sharp objects or strong currents and it is important we raise these concerns and encourage parents to highlight the risks to children.
