The general level of crime around has dropped, according to figures released by Supt Bob Noonan to Nenagh Joint Policing Committee last Monday.

Supt Noonan told the committee that “we can talk about the statistics all night, but at the end of the day it all comes down a lot of good being done. But we can’t succeed on our own”.

Crime across all categories was down last year, with the exception of break-ins.

While stating that property crime, in general, was down 12 per cent, a drop of 52 such incidents, break-ins was the one crime that increased.

“One offence that effects a lot of people is break-ins. That has increased in the division and the district,” he said.

However, he said the increase was not as bad as in other area, but that “one more break-in was one too many”.
