Thank you to everyone who came to my Crime in Corsham Forum at the Springfield Community Campus. A lively discussion demonstrated that perception of crime varies from person to person but there was agreement on the local challenges.
What is clear is that if we are to fight for greater resources for Police here in Wiltshire we need to ensure all crime is recorded when it happens. Too often people don’t use 101 or know about it – you should always report all non emergencies to this line and use 999 for emergencies. I will be taking up the issues people have raised in reporting crime with the Police and Crime Commissioner to find a solution to the challenges people are facing.
