Street Pastors Help Reduce Violent Crime


We have been made aware that the incidence of violent crime in the town centre over the Christmas period revealed a reduction of approximately 50% over Christmas 2010. Whilst there will have been other contributory factors such as the economy, the police and ambulance operation etc, we are credited with making a substantial contribution to this reduction.
 
Well done!
 
Other than the month of November, each month when we have been operating also revealed a similar drop in violent crime over the previous year. We think that November may be an exception because of the snow that we experienced during November 2010 keeping people off the street.
 
One quote was "You bring a calming influence on the streets"
 
Lets pray that our successes continue.
 
Blessings
