The Ourwatch website has improved considerably so that any person being registered can instantly call up a set of crime figures to a criteria they can chose from a range of options. For May 2012 a total of 230 crimes were recorded by the Police for Bethnal Green North, which is an above average figure and is roughly a 10% crime for the whole population.
The biggest slice of crime is Anti-social behaviour at 40.9 %, followed by shop lifting at 16.1%. 10% is drug related and 8.7% burglary.
I think we as Neighbourhood Watch have no reason to be complacent.
On or near Sewardstone Road, we had 1 criminal damage/arson and 1 burglary. 3 anti-s0cial behaviours, 2 vehicle and 2 violent crime.
