team said the statistics were misleading. “The figures for February are higher due to a number of factors. “For instance we carried out a lot of drug


warrants in that month which was positive pro- active police work. “We are legally bound to list every crime


regardless of its nature. This could be a theft of something worth £1 from a shop to an attempted phone fraud. “Even the most minor criminal damage is


recorded in the „other crimes‟ category so this section often looks worse than what it is in reality. The number of crimes per 1000 people is very


low at 4 incidents. There really is no need for alarm as Abbots Langley is a very safe place to live.” To see the report visit www.police.uk and
