Working Together to Prevent Crime

Most of us work and save hard for our possessions, so if we do suffer a burglary or theft, it can be very upsetting. As the popularity of video doorbells increase, information spread across social media could lead us to believe that burglary is rife. The number of burglaries reported to the police is not increasing. In fact, St Helens saw a 22% decrease in the number of residential burglaries from 2021/22 to 2022/23. 

The Safer St Helens Community Safety Partnership work hard to reassure our residents and equip them with the knowledge to reduce the risk of becoming a victim of crime. We regularly hold road shows, where free crime prevention goods and advice are given out. These are promoted via the St Helens Borough Council social media platforms.

There are steps you can take to reduce the likelihood of becoming a victim of burglary, theft and vehicle crime, and we want to encourage you to visit the below pages and consider making the small changes to protect yourselves and your property.
