Local Priority Updates

Alert message sent 20/11/2020 12:32:00

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. 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 working with the local parish council to tackle the issues raised in Kilby of speeding and overweight heavy goods vehicles on the roads. In relation to these matters, PC Wardle met with members of the local parish council on the 19th November 2020. During this time, speeding was discussed in full and various traffic slowing measures and their effectiveness were considered. Plans are not in place to move this initiative forward through a joint, partnership approach.
Local officers are also planning a ‘day of action’ on the beat in December, considering all road safety issues raised in the community and taking positive action to reduce these concerns. A further update will be provided next month.

• You said – Drug taking and dealing.
We did – Local officers have erected ‘police operation’ signs in hotspot areas of Countesthorpe to raise awareness to those considering the location for criminal activity. These locations will feature on the patrol strategy and be subject to increased patrols by local officers at key times throughout the week.
We have not been made aware of any other significant incidents in relation to this priority for the month of November.

• You said - Nuisance motorbikes.
We did – Local officers are well aware of the ongoing issue with motorbikes in fields and parks in the locality. A master report has been generated to document these incidents and the beat team are working closely with the ASB team at Blaby District Council to reduce this issue and identify those responsible.
S59 warning signs are in the process of being 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 recent 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 Wardle, PCSO Eastwood.
