2019/20 1st Quarter - Crime and Disorder Benchmarking Report


(Link to Council Priorities: All)


In the Portfolio Holder for Community and Corporate Development’s absence, the Portfolio Holder for Environment introduced the report that provided an overview of the different types of police recorded crime in Elmbridge which had been taken from the Police Recorded Crime Survey.  The data within the report was based on a 12-month period and would be updated each calendar quarter (Quarter 1: January – March; Quarter 2: April – June; Quarter 3: July – September; and Quarter 4: October – December).


The Portfolio Holder for Environment provided a brief update on the crime statistics for Elmbridge, the details of which were set out in the report.  The Cabinet noted that for future reports, the figures would also include monthly local crime statistics and updates from the Community and Safety Partnership regarding actions being taken with regard to all the issues detailed in the report.


The Portfolio Holder also took the opportunity to thank Borough Commander Dallas McDermott, who had recently been promoted within Surrey Police, for all his help and assistance during his time at Elmbridge and wished him well for the future.  She also welcomed the new Borough Commander, Bert Dean and looked forward to meeting him in the near future.


Recommended: that the data within the report be noted.
