Have your say

Calderdale’s District Commander has hailed the hard work of her police officers as the latest figures show that overall crime in the area is down by more than ten per cent.

The statistics that cover April 2013 to June 2014 show that incidents of sexual offences, burglary (dwelling and other), robbery, drug offences, theft of vehicles, fraud/forgery, handling stolen goods, criminal damage and other offences are all down compared to the previous 12 months.

However, on the up are other violence (non homicide), incidents of theft from vehicles and other thefts (neither of vehicles or from vehicles). The number of murders remained at zero.
