CRIME in the Henley area has dropped by 30 per cent over the past decade.
The news was delivered by Supt Andy Boyd, of Thames Valley Police, when he spoke to Henley Rotary Club on Tuesday.
He said South Oxfordshire and the Vale of White Horse district had the second-lowest crime rate in the South-East.
The burglary rate had dropped by 45 per cent in the past 10 years and there had been no break-ins in Henley town centre since March.
Supt Boyd said the force would relentlessly pursue criminals and make their lives “utterly intolerable”.
