    There are things i can do to prevent crime, like reporting incidents, encouraging residents to report incidents, getting better lighting in. There’s been a big drop in crime in the area i represent since I got elected, and that is due to the councillors, the police, the council and Whitefriars (the housing people) working together.
    If there are specific areas that you think are a problem let me know and i can be more specific.

    Crime can be prevented in areas of Coventry by involving young people, local residents, the Police and Council, to make sure that people are working together to tackle the problem, so the Police can find out whose commiting the crime.

    Crime can also be prevented by ensuring that issues such as umemployment is tackled so people have more jobs, tackle peoples dependency on drugs and alcohol, as poverty and drug abuse are the main causes behind why some people commit crime.
