Wednesfield- Vehicle Crime Statistics.

Vehicle Crime in Wednesfield is a constant concern for many of us.

I recognise that it is no good just making the comment that” Wednesfield is a Low Crime Ward,” which it is! Residents want to see our crime reduced even more.
The statistics delivered show that that Wednesfield (this is the combination of Wednesfield North and Wednesfield South Wards) has had 241 instances of vehicle crime between December 2018 and November 2019. A 12-month period.

These crimes do cause misery and anxiety. They are easy for the criminal to do, if we also make it easy for them to gain access to our vehicles.
Please do all you can to protect your vehicle and your possessions. Please we are all neighbours! Let’s keep an eye open for things that do not look right and raise our suspicions. Report the concerns to your Local Police.

Interestingly the last three months of the stats showed that vehicle crime was at its highest here in Wednesfield- with 83 cases of crime reported in September/October and November 2019.

The best thing that could happen to Wednesfield is to see the Police Station brought back into Public use , and see the Wednesfield Neighbourhood Police team increase in numbers. This could happen if the Government put enough resources back into our community….Perhaps you should tell them!
