Dear Members of South Leicester

Hello, Hope you all are well and enjoying the wonderful hot weather. I have had a look over the last few days of crime stats and unfortunately our area still suffers with Burglary and Vehicle crime. Majority of these are due to easy access to vehicles and premises. Please ensure that you double check Windows and Doors to both your vehicle and premises. When locking your vehicles don’t just trust the key fob but physically check that the doors are locked by pulling on the handle.

Please ensure that you also activate tracking software on your mobile phone, tablet and laptops. This can be apps such as ‘Find my iphone’ from Apple or Google has their own free tracking software for Android systems. There has been cases where electronic items were stolen but the user did not activate the tracking software which also means that the criminal can easily sell the item on. Tracking software not only helps the Police to catch the criminal and try to get your device back; but it will also secure your sensitive data which you can bar the device if someone tries to use it. You can also add an automated message which pops up in case you lose your device.  I would recommend to try this so you are familiar on the functions incase your device actually gets lost or stolen.

Unfortunately we also had a few reports of number plates that were stolen in our area. We still hold a supply of security screws which I suggest you should pick up for FREE from Wigston Front Enquiry Office.

If you are travelling with pets in your vehicle, then please ensure that you DON’T leave your pets in vehicles with the heat so intense. That also includes young children! We want everyone to enjoy the weather but to also take precautions and spot the common signs of a heatstroke.

The Six most common things to look for in a heatstroke;
  1. Headache, dizziness and discomfort
  2. Restlessness and confusion
  3. Hot Flushed and dry skin
  4. A fast Deterioration in the level of response
  5. A full bounding pulse
  6. Body Temperature above 40 degrees
If anyone has a heatstroke then the crucial thing to do is to move the person to a cool place and try to cool them down by sponging them with cold water or use a fan. Monitor their breathing and call 999 or 112 for further help. You can get more help about any medical advice if it’s happening now and is ‘NOT’ in a life threatening situation visit https://111.nhs.uk or https://www.nhs.uk for advice.

Stay Safe - “If You See Something….. Say Something and Report it”.
