  1. Its a locals area, out of towners need to consider why they are there.
    Others will disagree and post reasons & links. No uptodate evidence and its just nimby chat.

    Seen it all before, at least we have had no (recent) murders in tdc control locality and i hope murders dont come here.

    Again others will disagree and post their reasons why.

    Again oudders will disagree but post reasons&links (up to date) and its discuss able.

  2. Thanet crime is getting out of control & no matter how many times we the public say we need more ‘bobbys on the beat’ it will never happen the way it used to 20-30 years ago. Ramsgate king street & Harbour street areas are particularly bad for assaults & thefts in recent months. The cctv is not manned 24/7 which quite frankly is a joke. We need to do something & do it now.
