Local Priority Updates

Alert message sent 20/11/2020 10:37:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police


Dear resident,

Thank you for completing our recent survey about priorities for policing in your local area. We had an excellent response. Your feedback has helped us identify particular areas of focus on this beat. They are:

• You said - Anti-social behaviour (ASB).
We did – Local police were out and about during Halloween and Bonfire Night completing proactive patrols in your area and responding to reports of ASB. The vast majority of residents were behaving themselves whilst also ensuring the Covid regulations were followed in full which was very positive to see.
Local officers have also been responding to and pro-actively visiting addresses of concern which have previously been linked to ASB reports. Residents have been spoken to and no significant concerns have been raised at this time.
Reports of ASB have seen a steady decline in recent weeks, which in part relates to the Covid regulations and lockdown 2.0 in place. We ask that you continue to respect these regulations and ensure that your children do the same. A reminder of these key regulations can be found below:
The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) (No 4) Regulations 2020 state:
a) No person may leave or be outside of the place where they are living without reasonable excuse.
b) No persons should participate in a gathering which consists of more than 2 people in a public outdoor space.

• You said - Road safety.
We did – Local police have been out and about at the various schools across Braunstone Town and Thorpe Astley, ensuring individuals are both driving and parking appropriately around key school times. We are fully aware of the issues this creates for local residents and ask that everyone be respectful in their behaviours. Furthermore, a county council request for civil enforcement officers in these localities has also been made to ensure individuals abide by the rules and regulations in place.
Local officers identified several speeding hotspots and completed a ‘day of action’ on the 28th October 2020. Locations included the Kingsway, Murphy Way and Foxon Way with the majority of drivers all abiding to the speed limits in place. Advice and/or action was given to those who were found in be driving in excess of these speed limits. Further speed reduction events at various locations on Thorpe Astley and Braunstone Town are planned for December, utilising our police volunteers and special constables.

• You said - Vehicle crime.
We did – Spikes in vehicle crime (predominantly theft from motor vehicles) was noted in the locality of the Kingsway and Narborough Road South areas of Braunstone Town. As a result, a message was sent to all relevant residents on Neighbourhood Link making them aware of this and asking them to be extra vigilant.
Proactive patrols were also completed in the area, both by uniformed and plain clothed officers. This continues to take place and will run into December and form part of our ‘darker nights’ campaign which will be promoted on our social media pages.

• You said - Nuisance motorbikes.
We did – This priority is often linked to general ASB and local officers are aware of this ongoing issue. In attempt to both identify and take positive action against those who cause a nuisance, patrols have been completed throughout the month at the park locations on Braunstone Town. S59 warning signs have also been erected at key hotspot locations, allowing police to seize bikes immediately from anyone involved in this unwanted behaviour. Patrols throughout November have been positive with no significant issues to report.

What you have told us has helped shape our priorities for this beat. My colleagues and I will continue to keep you up to date on our progress. You can also follow what we are doing at Blaby Police on Facebook and Twitter.

If you have any further feedback, questions or concerns then please do not hesitate to get in contact or say hello when you see us on the street.
Of course, please remember you can report crime online at www.leics.police.uk or call 101. Please dial 999 in an emergency.

Thank you again for your support.

Your beat officers,

PS Goldsmith, PC Morris, PC Clough, PCSO Hall and PCSO Wright.
