Councillor Phil Bateman said “I have been taken a back by the fact that over this period these statistics are not getting any better.”
He went onto say -” Comparison of crime types in Wednesfield North between November 2016 and October 2017 are both shocking and frightening.
These are not my statistics they are crime statistics for Wednesfield North compiled by Police UK. The huge rise in violence and sexual offences has certainly startled me as the figures for Anti Social Behaviour, Burglary, Shoplifting, and Vehicle Crime has also.
It is these statistics and statistics like these for the whole of Wolverhampton, that led to me placing a resolution to Wolverhampton City Council this summer calling for the Government to make more Government financial resources available for the City of Wolverhampton.
Your three Labour Councillors Rita, Mary and I are committed to doing all we can, to ensure the Police and the Government recognise that your property, and your safety, is vitally important, and will be strongly campaigned for by your three City Councillors.
Comparison of crime types in this area between November 2016 and October 2017 are here.” Let me know what you think!
