County’s crime figures falling

CRIME in Lincolnshire is continuing to fall according to new Government statistics released last week.

The statistics, released by the Home Office, reveal not only that Lincolnshire continues to be one of the safest counties in the country, but also that crime rates are reducing, and at a greater rate than the national average in many crime types.

There were 2,523 fewer crimes in Lincs in 2010 than there were in 2009, and in particular, vehicle crime, criminal damage and assault fell by more 10 per cent.

Assistant Chief Constable Roger Bannister accredits the success in part to the ongoing project Operation Fusion, targeting the serious acquisitive crimes of burglary, robbery and vehicle crime, and led to a number of arrests in Market Rasen this week.
