Citywatch have busiest month for five years


November was the busiest month for Citywatch CCTV team in the past FIVE years.

With 382 incidents logged and 41 persons arrested which is the highest ever for one month with October 2011 coming a close second with 35 persons arrested.

On their Facebook page Citywatch posted: “Most of the incidents in November were for Theft, Drink Driving and Drugs Offences. Some people may say that crime is on the increase, but we believe that with the latest technology at our disposal we are getting better at detecting these crimes.

“As we now head into our busiest time of the year businesses and members of the public can also do their bit by reporting any suspicious behaviour, locking up your homes day and night and keeping valuables out of sight of prying eyes, remember if they see it they will steal it.”
