North Wales Police

Recording an average of 204 offences per 10,000 cars in 2011-2012, North Wales exceeds the national average by some margin and you’d be forgiven for thinking that this district has a serious problem with car crime. However, like a number of rural areas in the HonestJohn.co.uk Car Crime Census, the figures do not tell the whole story. North Wales has a relatively low ratio of car owners and this - combined with a few high crime areas - has resulted in a misleading overall average. Indeed, our heat map shows very little car crime in Wales

The highest concentration of car crime is found on the Isle of Anglesey, with Rhosneigr and the island’s golf club recording 258 offences per 10,000 registered cars. Wrexham also ranks highly, with two of its postcode - LL13 and LL14 – recording 125 and 99 offences. Other locations of increased car crime include Bangor and Caernarfon.

The majority of north Wales is relatively safe from car crime, but Gaerwen is the best district with just eight offences being recorded in 2011-2012. Pentraeth on the Isle of Anglesey also shows little car crime, with records showing just nine incidents.

Vauxhalls were the most targeted car in north Wales, with 264 offences per 10,000 vehicles, while Mercedes-Benz and Peugeot also ranked highly with 216 and 213 comparable incidents. The least target make of car was Chevrolet, with 54 recorded offences per 10,000 registered cars.
