Lib Dem Councillors Sue Derbyshire and Mark Weldon remain determined to keep crime in Stockport falling after the Borough’s partnership model was praised for helping lower crime in Stockport for the ninth year in a row.
The recent Safer Stockport Partnership conference heard how crime has continued to fall thanks to successful partnership working.
The SSP has helped deliver sustained crime reduction in Stockport over the last nine years with over 15,000 victims of crime. Over the nine year period all crime has been reduced by 51% and burglary in people’s houses by 52%.
Councillor Weldon, who opened the conference, said: “It’s a remarkable achievement that crime has continued to fall in Stockport for the ninth consecutive year thanks to the highly successful partnership work of the SSP. However, we are not complacent and we are determined to ensure that crime continues to fall even further by building on the close working relationships with community groups and partner organisations.”
