What are Community Forums?
Community Forum meetings are regular meetings where Safer Neighbourhood Teams,
members of the public, local agencies such as The youth Service, The District Council, the
County Council and other local agencies discuss issues within the local neighbourhood. The
meetings give members of the public the chance to raise issues for the authorities to tackle.
Actions and results are reported at the future meetings and new priorities are then set.
If you cant get to a meeting why not contribute now online.
To ensure we tackle the issues that matter most locally we need input from as many people as
possible within local communities. However if you find it difficult to get to these meetings
but have an issue you would like to be raised, you can complete our online survey and your
concerns will be raised at the next meeting visit www.safer-neighbourhoods.co.uk for more
information.

UPDATE from Chief Constable Andy Parker
Crime levels in Warwickshire are at an outstanding low. In the last six years, since
current recording practices began, crime levels have dramatically decreased. Announcing
the latest performance statistics today, Chief Constable Andy Parker said: “People
should feel safe living, working and visiting Warwickshire as crime levels are at a
significant and outstanding low in the county. “More and more people are being
protected from crime in Warwickshire, which means they are even less likely to become
a victim of crime. “In the last six months there have been nearly 2,000 fewer victims of
crime compared to the same period (April to September) last year. And if you compare
April to September 2006 to the same period in 2012 there have been more than 7,600
fewer victims.” Below are some of the latest statistics from Warwickshire Police
(figures all refer to April to September 2012 compared to the same period in 2011): -
1,907 fewer people were the victims of crime (an 11% decrease from 17,285 to 15,378),
the best recorded decrease in the first six months of the year since recording in this
way started in 2006. - 173 fewer vehicle crimes took place (an 8.3% decrease from
2,095 to 1,922). - 1,005 fewer incidents of anti-social behaviour occurred (a decrease of
8.3% from 12,127 to 11,122). - 133 fewer people were victims of serious violence (a
decrease of 9% from 1,475 to 1,342). - 136 fewer homes were burgled (a decrease of
12.3% from 1,106 to 970) - 26 fewer robberies took place (a decrease of 15% from 173
to 147). Chief Constable Parker added: “The simple fact is that in the whole of
Warwickshire there is on average only five burglaries a day, one robbery and seven
incidents of serious violence. This makes Warwickshire a particularly safe place to live.
“Crime has been falling steadily since 2006 and this year I am delighted the force has
achieved its biggest ever decreases, in the first six months of the year, since then.
“These are visible results of the hard work of our officers, staff and volunteers working
tirelessly with partners and local communities. I want people in this county to live in
safety protected by an excellent police force. “We are actively targeting criminals and
tackling areas
where crimes most occur.” Chair of Warwickshire Police Authority Phil Robson said: “I
am delighted to be in a position to once again be stating that crime continues to fall in
Warwickshire. “The authority is responsible for ensuring that all available policing
resources are used as effectively as possible to protect communities from harm. That
means tackling crimes that cause the most harm, and criminals who are most active, as
well as working with local partners and communities to deal with local priorities.
“Therefore it is with great pride that I say how extremely delighted I am at the
excellent performance the force has recently achieved.” He added: “Warwickshire
Police Authority has always worked extremely closely with the force, all officers, staff
and volunteers, and this has been of huge benefit when focusing our joint work on
reducing crime in local communities and catching criminals. “The authority will be
succeeded by a Police and Crime Commissioner, elected on November 15 and who assumes
office on November 22. As you can see they will inherit a force which is strong and
continues to focus on delivering the best possible protection. I know that policing
services will be even more efficiently and effectively delivered in alliance with West
Mercia in the years ahead. “With this in mind I would like to thank the force and all of
our local communities and partners for their continued support and engagement.”
