click here to enlargeLatest crime figures for the last 12 months in Salford show a dramatic decrease of more than 12 per cent when compared to the previous year meaning 2,935 fewer people have fallen victim to criminals.


In south Salford, crime has reduced by 16 per cent meaning 843 fewer victims.

Chief Superintendent Kevin Mulligan Commander for Greater Manchester Police’s Salford Division said: “Crime is falling in Salford year on year and residents can be assured that we will continue to target criminals over the coming months to reduce the figure even more.

“Our latest neighbourhood survey shows that 82 percent of people agree that police and Salford City Council are dealing with anti-social behaviour and the crime issues that matter to them. This is leading to them feeling safer in their homes and communities and increasing their confidence in local officers. We will continue to work towards the Service Promise and ensure we provide a first class service to the law-abiding majority in Salford.

“These results have been achieved by the hard work and commitment of the police, partners and community.”

To report crime call police on 0161 872 5050 or for more information visit www.gmp.police.uk.
