Unfortunately, there has been a worrying increase in crime across Aberdeenshire this past month.
With communities suffering from the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, the SNP Government need to ensure that communities feel safe as we ease out of lockdown.
I hope that the SNP Government use this increase in recorded crimes over the last month as a wake-up call to ensure that our officers on the front line have the resources to keep local residents and communities safe.
If you believe you are a victim of a crime, please call Police Scotland on 101 or 999 if it is an emergency.
