9:14am Wednesday 16th October 2013 in News
A NEW survey has found that 98 per cent of Ryedale residents believe the district is a safe place to live.
The survey, carried out on 767 residents by North Yorkshire Police, Street Scene and Safer Ryedale, also showed 94 per cent of residents felt the crime level in the district was low.
Just over 57 per cent of those surveyed complained about speeding motorists, 40 per cent complained about irresponsible dog owners, and 33 per cent were concerned about litter.
Inspector Andy Everitt said: “I am delighted that such a high number of people in this survey felt safe in Ryedale as this is the number one priority for us.
“That said, we are determined to maintain Ryedale as one of the lowest crime areas in the country and will continue to rigorously pursue those persons who seek to commit crime and antisocial behaviour in our communities.”
Coun Eric Hope said: “These results highlight that Ryedale residents appreciate the safe community they live in, feel their concerns are being listened to and they are kept informed about what action is being taken to deal with them.”
