Overall crime levels down in Radlett, but vehicle break-ins are on the rise
Crime levels have reduced in Radlett in the last year, although some areas including vehicle crime are on the rise.
Figures released by Hertsmere Borough Council, show that, between March last year and this year, no serious violent crime was reported in Radlett and violent crime and robbery were down.
However, there has been an increase in vehicle crime, with a total of 45 cases being reported, which is 14 more than the previous year.
Bushey and Radlett Neighbourhood Sergeant Noel Buckley said: "We are still experiencing a problem with vehicle crime when people are leaving their valuables including Sat Navs, mobile phone and purses on display. Never leave anything in your car to tempt an opportunist thief."
He added: “We have increased high-visibility patrols, targeted known offenders and we have brought many burglars before the courts for sentencing.”
