Local crime Data
Co-ordinators receive a crime sheet each month compiled by our local PCSO. This lists all reported crimes in the previous month, itemised by date, offence, location and property affected. The latest sets of crime sheet data for Bingham and the Surrounding areas are listed below.
Reporting crimes and incidents
Have you ever looked at the monthly crime sheet and thought that it omitted an incident of which you were aware? Have you been the victim of a crime or anti-social behaviour but not bothered to report it, thinking that nothing could be done? Then please read on.
It is vitally important that all incidents are reported to the police using the 101 non-emergency number (or via 999 if a crime is in progress or someone is in danger). The police can only respond to incidents they know about. Even if they are unable to respond immediately to every report, these reports are logged on police systems. The patterns they reveal then feed into operational decisions about where to deploy resources and personnel as well as into budgetary calculations. So your reports can directly affect how Bingham is policed and how it fares in competition with other areas for resources.
So remember, if you’re aware of a incident, report it straight away. Don’t rely upon someone else to do it.
