More Analysis of Wednesfield Police Statistics.

Just looking at the Police UK Statistics which are official Government stats for Wednesfield North & South Wards for the month of September –

I looked at crimes reported at the bottom of the statistics for this month. There is already an article on my sites relating to these September figures.

The numbers here though may surprise you!
Drugs -0
Robbery – 3
Other Crime – 4
Possession of weapons – 4
Cycle Theft – 4
Burglary 5
September was captured as a month when there was fewer crimes reported – 254 Crimes. Against August stats which showed -306 crimes.
My message to everyone in Wednesfield is a message I have consistently given for years.
Please report crime you have, or you see. It is so important that we get accurate statistics.
What is quite sobering, and this is more about the whole Justice system, is the fact though we have 254 crimes reported here in Wednesfield .
Only 1 of these cases is currently awaiting a Court Action.
2 – Cases are with Action by Others.
61 – cases are still under investigation.
87- Have no suspects identified
93- Unable to Prosecute.
Whilst on this subject its also worth stating that these statistics also currently deliver a message that this Wednesfield area, is very much still a low-crime area. There is of course a political message here..It is that this Government needs to pump more resources into policing here in Wednesfield and the West Midlands Force in particular.
