Crime statistics in East Reading; drug dealing up #rdguk

As many of you have mentioned to me, drug offences seem to be on the increase. If you believe it's going on in your area, call the police non-emergency number 101 with information, and keep a diary of the suspicious activities.

Crime statistics for the Redlands and Park Area below:

Maybe dealing is not up, just that the detection rates are up? With burglaries, etc. people tend to report these themselves so the figures can be generally accurate. With drug dealing, it's more likely down to police detection so all the stats show is that the detection rates are up, not necessarily that dealing is up over previous years ?

maybe, however I have seen more drug dealing recently and had it raised by members of the public with me more also.
