Serious acquisitve crime is defined as domestic burglary, car crime (theft of a
vehicle and theft from a vehicle) and robbery. These types of crimes cause great distress to the victim. They are also
the crimes that people worry the most about.
OSCP is working with many agencies to help reduce these crimes. Our
performance webpage provides details of the current crime levels. Some of the projects OSCP has initiated to keep our neighbourhoods
safe are shown below:
Target hardening scheme - providing improved
security measures for vulnerable burglary victims; working with landlords of houses in multiple occupation (HMOs)
and Oxford City Council and Social Landlords to improve the security of their properties.
Undercover and high-visibility police operations - These multi-agency operations aim to tackle
robbery, car crime and burglary during peak times of offending.
Providing prevention and awareness campaigns - Communication campaigns during peak times of
offending to raise public awareness about protecting homes, valuables and keeping safe.
