A recent police operation during January and February to target offenders in Oxford has reduced crime overall across the City.
Offences from mid January to mid February 2010 compared in percentage terms with the same period in 2009 are as follows:-
Burglary Dwelling = 56 15% reduction;
Robbery = 23 92% increase;
Theft from vehicles = 44 51% reduction;
Theft of vehicles = 32 45% reduction;
All crime = 1,549 10% reduction.
Please bear in mind that although the percentage increase in robbery is high the number of offences, less than one a day, is relatively low compared with other crime in the City. The police will continue to focus attention on robbery offences and provide crime reduction advice through the Neighbourhood Teams.
Thank you for your time.
