2018 Sees a further drop in crime

Figures produced by the local police have shown a further drop in crime reported on the Segensworth Estates. 

In 2018 the number of crimes reported dropped by 13% over the 2017 figures. This continues the downward trend sustained over many years. 

Our security measures include state of the art CCTV cameras with number plate recognition which are available for use by our local police. These were updated in 2018 to provide a higher quality image for evidential purposes and improved access for police investigations. Additionally, our mobile patrols from Oakpark Security run throughout the estates 4 times a night for seven nights a week and 4 times during the day at weekends. Add to this our regular meetings, intelligence sharing and co-operation with our local police, plus our text alert system, and it is clear that these measures continue to play a large part in keeping crime low on the estates. 

PC Dave Coleman from Fareham Neighbourhood Police Team comments:

“Crime is less within the Segensworth estates than comparable industrial areas. This is undoubtedly due to the security measures from the SBF which act as both a deterrent and a means to gather intelligence for further investigation.” 

SBF will continue to make security a top priority and are currently investigating installing an additional CCTV camera to provide further assistance for police investigations and act as an even greater deterrent.
