The figures for October-December 2011 show a 12.8% reduction in Wrexham town and a 21.3% drop in Wrexham rural making an overall reduction of 16.9%.
Anti-social crimes include instances of aggravated vehicle taking, arson, breach of ASBO, common assault, criminal damage, drug offences and harassment.
Recorded incidents of anti-social behaviour were also down 5.5% overall for Wrexham compared to the same period last year, this includes a 4.5% reduction in Wrexham town and 6.5% in Wrexham rural. The overall figure falls just shy of the annual target of 6% reduction,
The statistics were revealed in a report from the Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) monitoring group which is set to go before Wrexham Council tomorrow.
The number of recorded incidents of anti-social behaviour are seen as a key measure to assess the overall impact of PCSO provision in Wrexham.
In total there are 47 PCSOs deployed across Wrexham who spent a total of 14,114 hours on the beat in 2011. This meant that they were visible to the public 86.3% of the time, above the 85% target for time spent out of the office.
