Don’t fuel fear of crime

Villagers should be careful about what they post on social media in case it unnecessarily increases people’s fear of crime, neighbourhood policeman PC Simon Albutt told Alvechurch Parish Council.

He said burglaries in the parish were up from 44 in 2017 to 53 in 2018, but this reflected a change in the method of recording them – and the vast majority were in outlying areas of the parish rather than in the village.

Vehicle crimes were up by one, from 128 to 129.
