Vehicle thefts down in Cwmavon after officer patrols and advice
THE number of thefts from vehicles in Cwmavon has fallen following officer advice and patrols.
During September, the village experienced a spike in the number of thefts from insecure vehicles in the area.
In response to the issue, the neighbourhood policing team introduced several measures to tackle the issue including raising awareness of the problem and targeted leaflet drops.
They also held vulnerable vehicle patrols, patrols, where officers patrolled problem areas and advised owners of avoiding becoming a target.
In response to these measures, reported vehicle crime has dropped by over 80 per cent, from 18 down to 3.
