POLICE bosses claim crime has fallen across Hertfordshire by almost 15 per cent.
The figures suggest there were 9,148 fewer crimes recorded in the 12 months up to March 31.
This drop follows a 6.3 per cent reduction in 2011/12 with chief constable Andy Bliss taking credit for the fall.
He said: “It is reassuring to see that we are focusing our efforts in the right areas and that we are managing to bring crime down year-on-year.
“These figures reflect the dedication and professionalism of all those working for and with Hertfordshire Constabulary, to keep crime as low as possible and keep the county a safe place to live and a great place to visit.

“It is only possible to keep crime and anti-social behaviour down by making sure we do not rest, but keep working on identifying potential future risks and advising the public on how they can help us prevent crime before it happens.”
