Lapworth, Rowington & Shrewley (Warwick Rural West) Crime Information and message
- We are aware that the fear of crime has risen recently in parts of the Warwick Rural West Safer Neighbourhood area. We are referring particularly to the Rowington, Shrewley and Lapworth areas.
Warwickshire Police would like to reassure residents and businesses that we realise how the fear of crime can increase when incidents take place in a neighbourhood or area.
Recently we have improved our Community Messaging System for the Warwick Rural West neighbourhood with messages being issued on a daily basis when incidents have taken place. In the short term while this has improved the level and timeliness of communication it may have created an impression that crime has significantly increased.
Consequently, we would like to share with the communities that make up the Warwick Rural West Safer Neighbourhood area the crime figures for key offences over the period between 1 April and 29 October 2017 and 1 April and 29 October 2018.
