Moreton in Marsh Against Crime started this petition to council

Problem
Moreton in Marsh is becoming more and more a target for crime. Due to the shortage of police on the beat, and having lost our police station for housing a few years ago, the problem is not going away.

Solution
In view of the problem, it is my opinion that with discreet CCTV on two or three sites in the town and maybe on the outskirts, Moreton will be given a chance to reduce crime rates. Some residents are already defending their properties by installing burglar alarms or CCTV which of course is what the Government and Councils want; it saves them money. However as policing is paid through a great proportion of council tax I feel it is the duty of the Council, whether it be Town or District. to help towards a solution.

Personal story
I am a resident of Moreton in Marsh and in the past have been subject to a break-in, as have my family. I see and hear the effect crime is having on individuals, families, and businesses in the town and want to help try to make a difference.
