CHESHIRE Police say they are winning the battle against crime.
Figures released yesterday show people across the county are “safer and experience less crime than people elsewhere in the country”.
The number of crimes reported in Cheshire fell by 8% during the summer compared to 3% nationally.
Assistant Chief Constable David Baines said: “The improvements in our performance during the summer can be attributed to the hard work and professionalism of our officers and staff.
“Fewer victims and less violence is evidence that our tactics are heading in the right direction. I would like to reassure local communities that we will continue our efforts to bring down crime by targeting those individuals who strike fear into the heart of our communities.”
