Burglaries fall in Hertfordshire
There were 12 fewer burglaries last week in Hertfordshire than in the equivalent week last year, police have said.
And last Friday (August 2) no household burglaries at all were reported in the county.
Police say figures from last week represented a 41.4 per cent decrease in 2012.
Since April, there has been a 14.1 per cent reduction compared to the same period last year - equating to 140 fewer reported household burglaries.
Chief Constable Andy Bliss said: "Burglary victims face a really nasty experience and, in some instances, significant distress so reducing offences remains a top priority for us.
"One offence is too many, so we will continue to press on with trying to reduce burglaries even further."
Hertfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner David Lloyd, added: "This is very encouraging news, due in no small part to very hard work by the Constabulary."
