Crime figures drop across Doncaster area, say police

POLICE claim incidents of antisocial behaviour and criminal damage across Doncaster have dropped compared to the same period last year.

The period of 29 October to 6 November, generally sees an increase in incidents of antisocial behaviour and criminal damage throughout the county.

But the force said this year, the amount of incidents have dropped by a fifth in Doncaster over the same nine day period.

Chief Inspector Neil Thomas said: “This is a fantastic result and I am pleased we have seen this decrease. All public sector organisations in Doncaster have worked together to assist in reducing the number of incidents, and a variety of activities and events were provided for young people to be involved in that were really well attended.

“With the launch of the new non-emergency number for the police, 101, I would always encourage people to report any incident of antisocial behaviour or criminal damage so that we can continue to tackle these issues and make Doncaster a safe place to live, work and play.”
