Crime Stats for November Balloon Upwards!

Crime in Wednesfield which includes Wednesfield North & South has ballooned upwards in November 2020. The statistics were published by Police UK .

Councillor Phil Bateman Wednesfield North said “A whopping 66 new crimes were reported to Police in November, over the October stats. That equates to an increase of 34.7%

I cant say that these results make happy reading.

The three top crimes that are driving these figures in November are –
Violence and sexual offences 99
Anti-social behaviour 43
Vehicle crime 27

“These are not good results, and it continues to fuel the communities call for more Police Officers for Neighbourhood Policing in Wednesfield. Plus the community I represent continues to call for the retention of Wednesfield North Police Station. These statistics sadly help to provide renewed evidence for our pleas.”
