Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
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:The local Police teams are running a number of planned and dynamic operations with officers conducting targeted uniformed and plain cloths patrols at key times and locations. We are regularly reviewing our local reassurance and preventative patrol strategy to target and disrupt these type offences and offenders at key identified locations. Stop checks and search warrants have been successful with arrests being made and a number of offensive weapon being recovered. 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.
Analysis has identified an increase in demand on Police and partner agencies from incidents and calls for service from the Bradgate Unit at the Glenfield Hospital site. These involve reports for persons Missing From Homes (MFH), Assaults on staff and patients, and drugs related offences.
Issued: April 2018
What we are doing:The police are working in partnership with the Bradgate Unit and have designated a Bradgate Partnership officer to problem solve issues to reduce demand and calls for service, to prevent crime. With the overall aim to improve joint processes, protocols and minimum standards in relation to crime reporting and missing patient reporting. Highlighting and introducing best practice for information sharing, and training and development opportunities
