Caerphilly County Borough is becoming a safer place to live, work and visit as new figures show that crime rates are dropping thanks to the ongoing work of the Safer Caerphilly Community Safety Partnership.
In 2005, the Community Safety Partnership set a three-year target to reduce crime rates in the area by 18%.
Figures show that the Partnership looks set to exceed these targets substantially, with current crime reduction figures for the borough standing at an impressive 22.8%.
Chief Superintendent and Chair of the Safer Caerphilly Community Safety Partnership, Alun Thomas, said: "We have had consistent reductions in crime levels right across the Caerphilly County Borough over the last three years, which is extremely pleasing. However we certainly aren't complacent with this and are continually working to drive down crime figures even further."
