Hello I am your local PCSO Lee Gardner. Welcome to the latest update for the Centre beat area of Basingstoke consisting of Grove, Eastrop, Brookvale and Kings Furlong for the last couple of weeks.
Current Priorities
The three current priorities chosen by you for the Town Centre area are Residential Burglaries, Robberies and Cycle Theft. In the last fortnight there have been 5 Residential Burglaries, 3 reports of Robberies and 1 incident of Cycle theft. During the last month we have done 4 separate cycle security marking events in the Town Centre with the help from our partners within the Town and this has helped massively.
Crime Trends
Over the last 90 days three crimes that have seen the biggest increase are Residential burglaries, Possession of Offensive Weapons and Arson. To put this into context there have been 6 reported Arson’s in the last 90 days compared to 2 for the 90 days before that. There have been 19 reported Residential Burglaries in the last 90 days compared to 7 for the 90 days before that. Possession of Weapons has also increased from 8 incidents in the previous 90 days to 18 for the past 90 days.
The three crimes that have decreased the most over the same time period are Cycle Theft. Trafficking Of Drugs and Miscellaneous Crimes Against Society. 
Since our Cycle Marking events during the summer we have seen a big drop in Cycle Thefts. They have decreased from 24 to 8 in the last 90 days compared to the previous.

The Kings Furlong & Brookvale area has shown a largest decrease in crime over the last 90 days with only 191 reported incidents compared to 190 in the previous 90 days but this it has still had 1 more crime reported than previous. Eastrop has had a 9% increase in crime  with 489 reported incidents in the last 90 days compared with 451 in the previous 90 days. The Grove has also had an increase in crime with 81 incidents compared to 60.
