It is being suggested that residents are reluctant to call the police, either because they think they are too busy or because the incident is not that serious. It is important that all crime, however it is perceived, is reported to the police. Unless we do so, we could lose our local resources. Plus the police want to cut down on low-level but annoying crimes that blight all our lives. So, if you see anything call 101 and report it. It may be more serious than you think.
