Local Priority Updates

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

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.
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. However, on the 14th November 2020 a large group of youths causing ASB on Northfield Park, Blaby were stopped and alcohol seized. Each individual was verified and parents spoken to before being collected and taken home. In conjunction with the ASB team at Blaby District Council, relevant warning letters will also be sent out. We ask that you continue to respect the Covid 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 officers have completed traffic calming measures on various main roads in Blaby. Uniformed officers in marked vehicles completed this process by being visually present at speed hotspot locations.
Further speed reduction events at various locations are planned for December, utilising our police volunteers and special constables.
Local police will also be present at schools during key times throughout the school day to ensure individuals are both driving and parking appropriately and responsibly.

• You said - Vehicle crime.
We did – Vehicle crime, namely theft from motor vehicles, remains a concern for local residents. Local officers have been completing crime pattern reviews to ensure patrols are completed at the right locations during key times.
The month of November saw the ‘darker nights’ campaign commence which involves local officers completing proactive patrols in the areas you live and targeting those who cause the community most harm. This will continue into the month of December.
A spike in catalytic converter thefts from motor vehicles has also been noted across Leicestershire. In response to this, the local beat team have been raising awareness and placing high visibility posters up at various public and private car parks across the beat to ensure this message is received by all residents.

• 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. S59 warning signs are in place 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 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 Uppal, PCSO Malik and PCSO Stevenson.
