Police call for changes to behaviour
We often get asked by victims of crime why they should be the ones having to change.
The answer is quite simple and comes back to why you have rung us. You have lost in some way.
We don’t often have offenders who go out looking for stuff to steal, they are usually opportunists. This is why you don’t leave handbags visible on front seats of cars, windows down, or cars and houses unlocked.
If you don’t give these people the opportunity to steal they can’t.
The same goes for family harm with the majority of the cases we are seeing being drug and alcohol related.
It’s about knowing who you are with and if they have a tendency to become violent when they drink tell them not to drink.
They might tell you they love you but they probably don’t if they are more interested in themselves and their violent ways. You are better off without them.
I am not trying to blame victims but people do
