Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
Since the beginning of October 2018, there has been significant increase in reported burglaries across of dwellings, breaks into garages and sheds, across the force area and West Leicester NPA. The Beaumont Leys beat has also suffered from a notable increase in Burglary offences, which has caused a considerable emotional impact and financial loss and hardship on the victims of the offences.

What we are doing:Analysis and reviews of the Beaumont Leys (NW03) beat recorded burglaries between 01/10 and 27/11/2018 has been conducted. - Between these dates there have been 29 offences, which includes 1 x car key break, 1 x garage and 1 x Att garage breaks, 1 x outhouse break, 2 x shed break. - 17 offences on the Anstey Heights area of the beat, 10 offences on the main Beaumont Leys areas, 2 on the Bradgate Heights estate, none on the Heathley Park or Glebelands estate. - This enabled the most common areas, offence MO's, offence days of the week and time frames to be identified. - This critical information has been shared with adjoining beat, response, dogs and armed vehicle teams for support to tackle the issue. - The default beat patrols have been set for the key locations, days of the week and relevant times. - The burglary issue and Crime Prevention Advice has been highlighted and shared on the beat social media sites requesting information and intelligence. - Burglary, CPA and support leaflets are being delivered in the areas of recent burglary. - After every burglary report - local officers and response are utilising the Golden hour rules, taking every opportunity to gather and secure evidence and forensic possibilities, and speak to witnesses, conducting appropriate house to house and CCTV enquires, victim reassurance and CPA visits. - Key identified individuals who have previously committed burglary offences in the area, or who have recently been released from prison, or who are linked by intelligence to the commission of the offences have been highlighted and further covert development work has been adopted.

The local Ward Councillors, business Owners and residents have raised concerns about the apparent increase in drugs related activity and abuse in and around the Home Farm centre and surrounding area. There has been an increase of reports and intelligence of open drug taking, abuse and dealing in the area, and associated possession of weapons and violent criminality.
Issued: September 2018
What we are doing:The local Police team have conducted street consultations to ascertain the level of the drugs issue, and have been cultivating further relevant information and intelligence on the reported problems. Police teams conducted a drugs and weapons based uniform and covert operation at the end of October which resulted in 8 arrests and a significant amount of drugs, cash and goods being seized. We intended to run similar targeted operations and enforcement warrants in the forthcoming months, together with intelligence led stop and searches and vehicle stops checks. Officers will continue to conduct pro-active preventative and reassurance patrols, targeting key areas and currently known drugs individuals and gangs. We will also be working with partners to provide support, positive interventions and opportunities for drug users to actively break the cycle of drug abuse, which is very often linked to criminality and by being addicted to drug taking and having to fund the habit.

Knife Crime Reduction Initiative. Over the past few months the Police have dealt with several knife related incidents involving young persons. There has also been a increase in offensive weapons being recovered and knife related intelligence being received, with community concerns being raised about the fear of knife related incidents.
Issued: April 2018
What we are doing:In July and October 2018 the local Police teams with the support of specialist Police teams conducted planned Policing operations conducting uniformed and plain clothes patrols at key times and locations and previous knife crime hotspots. This resulted in 10+ arrested for weapons, drugs and proceeds of crime arrests and the recovery of a number of knifes, weapons, controlled drugs and proceeds of crime money and assets. We continue to regularly reviewing our local reassurance and preventative patrol strategy to target and disrupt these type offences and offenders at key identified locations. In addition known habitual knife carriers have been identified and pro-active multiagency engagement opportunities are being explored to divert them from carrying knifes and being involved in knife related offences. Local police teams are working with the E2 project and local schools, by delivering knife crime presentations by trained officers which have been well received by the students and staff and endorsed by parents, promoting #LivesNotKnives.
