Crime Figures Drop
Crime figures for Hethersett have shown a welcome drop and police are winning the fight to stop anti social behaviour around Hethersett Parish Pit, a meeting of South Norfolk Council's Northern River Valleys Neighbourhood Board heard.
PC Glenn Hambling reported on the latest figures of 148 recorded crimes in the Hethersett and Mulbarton Neighbourhood Area compared with 202 for the same period in 2011.
There had been no reports to the police about anti-social behaviour either at Hallowe'en or during the bonfire/fireworks celebration period.
PC Hambling added that the Police were winning the battle to prevent anti-social behaviour in the parish pit area of the village - notoriously used by off road motor bikes.
"We have spoken to over 21 people over the last few months and warned them about their behaviour. So far we have had no repeat offenders once the warnings have been issued," PC Hambling added.
He also reminded residents to be vigilant over the coming Christmas period and not to leave Christmas presents on display in either their cars or homes.
