Council Says Work Is Only A Precaution
Police Say Crime In Cambs Is Down
Crime in Cambridgeshire is falling, according to Police.
Cambridgeshire Police statistics show there were 56,620 crimes in the county in the 12 months up to the 31st March.
That compares to 60,143 crimes in the year before that.
The force says the number of burglaries, vehicle crimes, robberies and incidents of anti-social behaviour in Cambridgeshire are all falling.
The figures also show the number of crimes being detected is going up.
There were 16,947 detections last year, compared to 16,104 the year before.
Chief Constable Simon Parr said: "These figures show that despite the economic downturn and the reductions to our budget, we are continuing to successfully tackle crime.
It is particularly pleasing to see anti-social behaviour reduced by more than 5000 incidents - that's 5000 fewer victims - and significant reductions in crimes which can have a massive impact on victims, such as burglary and robbery.
However, we must not be complacent and we will not let up in our efforts to drive down crime.
We are facing financial challenges in coming years but these will not prevent us from making criminals' lives difficult. It is my aim to make them fear crime, and its consequences, not members of the public."
