Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Our Neighbourhood Policing Teams have been out in the community and have listened to what matters to you and focused our Force prioritises around this. We have reviewed your feedback from the Neighbourhood Link Surveys alongside our own crime patterns and incident lists for the last month.

This is what you said was important to you:

• Anti-Social Behaviour
• Road Safety
• Vehicle Crime

This is what we did:

ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR – During this month, ASB involving fireworks can be problematic for our communities as well as for pet owners. We have added extra staff over the Bonfire period in order to reduce the increase reports we receive over this time frame.
We have also had several reports and incidents in our recreational open spaces, where a significant number of youths have been gathering in their vehicles in the car parks, as this has been happening early evening and later at night, it has caused anxiety and disturbances to residents and dog walkers. Patrols have therefore been undertaken and any persons found to be parked up at the location for any reason other than for the purpose and enjoyment of the space intended, have been politely asked to leave.

ROAD SAFETY – We understand this is an important topic and we receive many concerns in relation to road safety. We have liaised with our partner agencies and have been granted some high visibility reflective wear from our Road Safety Team. This will be passed onto schools in our local area, with the darker nights it is important for pupils on bicycles to be wearing the correct clothing in order to increase their visibility.
From reading your posts on social media, speeding traffic, especially through the villages are often highlighted. we listened and conducted speed monitoring checks on the roads you have asked us to attend and tickets to offending drivers have been issued.

VEHICLE CRIME – In our attempts to combat vehicle crime, we have set up high visibility patrols in known crime hot spots, have collated data from the past 12 months and have reviewed the crime trends. With our heightened patrols and expanded knowledge, we have reduced crime figures and the results are published in our monthly Newsletter.

We encourage the public to continue to report any issues or concerns that they have as this helps us to target what really matters to you.

You can continue to have your say by completing the Survey on:

You can continue to report non-emergency crime online at www.leics.police.uk or in the event of a crime taking place or something deemed an emergency dial 999
