You said, we did

We have completed some crime prevention work in areas previously targeted for crime. This includes crime prevention leaflets, speaking with residents and supporting individual residents with crime prevention products/advice where requested.

We have also been completing targeted patrols around the village. Stop checks also completed whilst patrolling. Patrols include marked vehicle and bicycle patrols throughout the day and night. We patrol local businesses, residential areas and parks to challenge criminal behaviour and support local residents. When residents raise concerns around specific areas and times, we will put these locations on our patrol plan.

If you see anything suspicious please ensure you call 101 or 999 immediately to report. Vehicle registration plates, types/colour of vehicle are really useful to us if you are able to obtain them.

As part of our multi agency approach. I have spoken to a Community Recovery Worker from Leicestershire County Council. She is new to the area and is looking forward to getting involved locally. I hope that when we are all back in a position to continue with community groups, that she will be able to offer support and knowledge to help people get back on their feet. When the times comes, if you have any ideas around community initiatives to help local residents, please get in touch.

I have attached the Community Safety Partnership Winter Newsletter. It mentions subjects such as Resident support, youth work, domestic abuse, scams and home safety. It is a really good read so please take a look
