Crime rates in Broadland fall by nine per cent

Crime rates in Broadland have fallen by nine per cent over the last year according to latest figures.

They say initiatives contributing to the reduction have included operations to target offences of burglary, criminal damage and domestic violence.

Chief inspector Neil Baily said: 'Officers from Broadland and North Norfolk District are continuing to focus on those crimes which are of most concern to the public, particularly crimes of violence and burglary. We are working tirelessly together with our CID and Crime Scene Investigation colleagues both to prevent these offences happening in the first place and to pursue the offenders.

'The continuing help and support of the public is a vital component in this and we encourage people to always report any suspicious activity that they see and to share any information that they may have'.
