In the results of the survey for the Village Plan there was quite a large discrepancy between the number of crimes that Oxton residents said they suffered and the actual crimes that the police recorded had taken place. It is important that all incidents, however small, are reported; it can have a bearing on the number of officers allocated to a district.

One way to report an incident is via the Crimestoppers website.
As a reminder, the new non-emergency number for the police is 101. Calls to this number cost 15p in total whether from a landline or mobile.
