The latest statistics released by Kenilworth’s Safer Neighbourhood Team are very much welcomed by Kenilworth Watch. In overall terms crime in the Kenilworth District has reduced between August and October by 29.3% compared to the same period last year.
We believe that the reduction is partly due to more people actively taking interest in their own security and taking appropriate measures to deter criminals. Our regular crime alerts which now go out to over 900 homes have undoubtedly helped in focusing householders on matters of home and vehicle security.
While the reduction is encouraging we still wish to emphasise that criminals continue to operate in our area and therefore vigilance and deterrence are both continually required so we are able to protect our homes, property and vehicles.
We’d like to to take this opportunity to thank Kenilworth’s Safer Neighbourhood Team for all the work in helping preventing and deterring crime. Kenilworth is fortunate in being one of only a few places that has the benefit of timely and up to date crime alerts via its Safer Neighbourhood Team who is supported by Police Service Volunteers.

Is there some mistake ? You are usually the bearer of bad news………
No there’s no mistake but your comment is very pertinent because we are very conscious that by ensuring we issue timely and regular crime alerts we run a real risk of creating a view that Kenilworth is crime hot spot which by any measure it’s not. We are currently reviewing our approach and will determine and communicate any changes in time for January 2020.
