    All this crime will affect insurance premiums so it is going to affect everybody…..even the dickheads that are causing the problems.
    Police need to shift officers from traffic to catch these morons

    What I am finding most interesting on this forum and a certain popular social media site is the talk of ‘No Go Areas’ in Wrexham.

    Okay so there is an increase in perceived undesirables on the street, but are we categorically saying that there are areas in Wrexham, where the average Joe/Jane will face down a real threat of violence, mugging or worse from druggies and gangs?

    What levels of threat are we talking? 1980s Harlem or Compton? Modern-day Aleppo? Or are we pushing it to Biblical levels of Sodom and Gommorah?

    Now I’ve lived in a number of different areas in Wrexham, as well as on the edges of Moss Side and Salford in Manchester when I was younger. I have to say that labelling places as such is more harmful than helpful. The vast majority of people in these places are neighbourly, helpful and law abiding and I’ve had no trouble to date from anyone, anywhere I have lived. To allow the actions of a few bad eggs tarnish the reputation of an area is a bit of an insult to the people who live there and also harms local businesses and community services operating in these areas, as it puts people off going there and therefore reinforces any deprivation that is happening.

    It would be nice if the Police were able to tackle all of the issues arising around Wrexham and people have a right to be concerned, but as people have said cuts across North Wales are making things more difficult.

    In terms of other solutions, whatever happened to Neighbourhood Watch Schemes? Are many still in operation? Did they ever do anything? I regularly notice stickers on lamp-posts in various areas, but they seem faded or ripped, so would imply they were something from the past.

    Yes, the bus stop to name one. Who would want to sit and wait for the bus where ‘undesirables’ spend day a night being should I say ‘undesirable’.

    A welcome point for visitors to the town, surely not one for neighbourhood watch.

    It’s just not safe anywhere anymore, a gang of vicious grannies at the Rhos high street bus stop, pension day so off to the den of vice and gambling at Mecca to get off their tits on white wine spritzers and gin, already giddy from throat lozenges and the maddening heat from their Winter Fuel Allowances. Look out, they might kick off and force you off the priority seating at the front of the bus.

    Remember the police can’t be everywhere all the time , the public need to help them. People moan about things going on in an area but don’t report it. Crimestoppers is anonymous and 101 can be used for reporting things of interest. The criminals are winning at present, communities need to work together to bring these people to justice. We are becoming immune to the daily headlines and the crimes are getting progressively more serious, arson, burglary and armed robbery!
