Melton Town North Priorities Update and Neighbourhood Policing Newsletter

Alert message sent 05/10/2020 17:22:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Dear Citizen

Following consultations with residents of the Melton Town North through Neighbourhood Link, (, the biggest concern raised was Anti-Social Behaviour.

The positive news is that ASB reports have dropped in September into October this year. However, we are now around the average number of reports for ASB from the previous few year’s data, but I am continuing to work hard with our partner agencies to continue this downward trend we are on. I aim to bring this well below average in the next couple of months as I fully appreciate the negative impact it has on those it effects.

To combat this we are increasing high visibility patrols in hotspot locations, both on foot and in marked vehicles, at times when ASB has been reported to us. We have also recently conducted a joint patch walk with Leicestershire County Council’s IMPACT Detached Youth Workers.

We will continue to tackle any ASB across the beat and we encourage you to report any issues to us online via, or by calling the Police on 101 (always 999 in an emergency).

The next biggest concern you have raised is Drug Dealing.

Drug offences have increased on the Town North Beat, however this is a positive thing. This shows that we are successfully identifying those individuals in the community who are partaking in this activity and we are catching them, (hence the increase in recorded offences).

Most recently to tackle drug dealing, we have executed multiple court warrants in the area in September, as well as continuing to stop search those individuals we believe to be causing the community the most harm, in the areas that we have received information for.

On the first weekend of October, the Neighbourhood Priority Team stopped two males on the Town North Beat, quickly identified that they were involved in the supply of class A drugs and swiftly apprehended them. During a search a significant amount of class A was recovered, so both males were arrested for drug related offences. This is a really good result and showed what can happen if community intelligence is given to the Police.

We urge anyone to report any information known about the supply of drugs to us by calling 101, or via our Facebook or Twitter accounts. You can also report information to us completely anonymously via Crime Stoppers online, or over the phone, their website is and their phone number is 0800 555 111.

The last and still very important concern you have raised is Road Safety.

We have recently conducted speed monitoring on Nottingham Road, Scalford Road, Thorpe Road and Welby Lane in response to concerns raised by local residents. Most recently I conducted speed monitoring on Asfordby Road, I was there for a total of 30 minutes, where over 350 vehicles passed. Out of those, only 1 vehicle was speeding. A very low percentage, but still 1 too many in my opinion.

We will continue to work with our Safer Roads Team to conduct speed monitoring and enforcement whenever possible. If you have any roads not already mentioned above, that you think are particularly concerning on the Town North Beat, please reply to this message using the button below with the road name and the worst days and times.
