NORTH Wales Police have launched a campaign seeking to reassure the public that crime is falling.

Working in partnership with Wrexham Council, police will be hosting events promoting the campaign across the region.

Figures show crime has reduced in the Wrexham area by 4.1 per cent over the last year, with more than 400 fewer people being the victim of crime compared to a year ago.

Det Insp Neil Harrison from Wrexham Police said: “This is good news for Wrexham and provides reassurance that the town is a safe place to live, work and visit.

“The hard work of all the partner agencies will continue and we will build on the success of past year.

“The message I would like to get across is the role  the community of Wrexham has in relation to reducing crime further. I would urge people to keep their property secure and out of view at all times, reducing the opportunities that criminals have to commit offences.”

As part of the campaign a series of crime rrevention awareness events have been arranged aimed at encouraging householders to take responsibility for their property and reduce their risk of becoming victims of crime.”

Wrexham Council lead member for communities collaboration and partnerships, Cllr Hugh Jones, said: “We are committed to strengthening the partnership to deliver better outcomes for all our residents.”

Residents and visitors to Wrexham are encouraged to contact the Police on 101 if they see anything suspicious or have any information that may be of assistance.

Alternatively information may be provided anonymously by calling Crimestoppers Wales on 0800 555 111.

In an emergency always ring 999.

l Today: Asda in Wrexham - 10am-12.30pm.
