The Town Council recently commissioned Dr Barry Blackburn a criminologist to analyse crime in Faversham and make recommendations for what the council and community can do to make our town safer.

Councillor Antony Hook has said: “I can preview the report by saying Dr Blackburn has found that most crime in Faversham falls into three categories, violence (including domestic violence), theft and criminal damage”.

I suppose that we should be relieved that incidents of piracy, cock-fighting and witchcraft are no longer of great concern but think that a return of a decent police presence in the town would the most effective solution to the problem.
