Working Together to Prevent Crime
Most of us work and save hard for our possessions, so if we do
suffer a burglary or theft, it can be very upsetting. As the
popularity of video doorbells increase, information spread across
social media could lead us to believe that burglary is rife. The
number of burglaries reported to the police is not increasing. In
fact, St Helens saw a 22% decrease in the number of residential
burglaries from 2021/22 to 2022/23.
The Safer St Helens Community Safety Partnership work hard to
reassure our residents and equip them with the knowledge to reduce
the risk of becoming a victim of crime. We regularly hold road
shows, where free crime prevention goods and advice are given out.
These are promoted via the St Helens Borough Council social media
There are steps you can take to reduce the likelihood of
becoming a victim of burglary, theft and vehicle crime, and we want
