2:00pm Thursday 31st October 2013 in News
ATTEMPTS are being made to help repeated victims of crime.
More than £400,000 has been invested this year to help high risk victims.
In 2012/13 there were 9,493 people who were victims more than once, up almost 500 on the previous year.
However the signs are this figure is now beginning to fall.
The number of repeat commercial victims has fallen in Essex, according to information provided by police and crime commissioner Nick Alston.
