The first few weeks of the Policing year have been quite busy on Arun. Already we have seen a 10% reduction in crime in comparison to last year, specifically around burglary, criminal damage and theft from motor vehicles. Ok, I hear you say how many crimes does that equate to ? Just over 90 less victims, but please don’t be complacent and make sure you do all to prevent crime.
We have recovered more property linked to the Peapod series of burglaries and individuals have been arrested. A Pc was telling me just how much it meant to a victim for us to return sentimental pieces to them.
We have also arrested and charged a number of individuals in Littlehampton, linked to the distribution and supply of drugs locally.More arrests are due I’m told.
We have the launch of Operation Accent looking at understanding the Eastern European Communities across Arun.
In addition to this I have been busy working on some up and coming preplanned protests, some Silver duties and the last home game for the Albion.
The Diamond Jubilee Weekend will be with us soon and will be busy and soon followed by the Olympic Torch Relay and the actual Olympics Event. Starting to get busy I think !!
