Yesterday I attended the monthly Acocks Green police tasking meeting. As usual we were given un update on the crime figures at the start.
The good news is that there has been a further slight fall in total recorded crime across Acocks Green ward so far this year. There have been 2 fewer crimes, which represents a fall of 0.5%. Within this overall figure there are some bigger movements:
Burglary down 21%
Vehicle crime static
Business crime up 21%
Drug crime down 6%
The old police residents meetings have now ended with the police attending the regular Neighbourhood Forum meetings (both the Acocks Green and Fox Hollies Green Neighbourhood Forums) instead. This leaves a gap for the Yarnfield Estate, which does not currently have a Neighbourhood Forum. Until there is I believe the Yarnfield meetings should continue.Leave a comment
