Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
Local shop keepers and residents are reporting large groups of youths are congregating and causing anti-social behaviour, being rowdy, littering, intimidating members of the local community and climbing onto the roofs on the shops in and around the precinct.
The Police will be conducting extra patrols in and around the location to identify and take action against those young people who refuse to use the area correctly using the incremental approach process.
'Streetvibe' youth workers will be conducting weekly sessions in the area to engage with the youths and help signpost their behaviour into more positive and productive outcomes.

What we are doing:UPDATE; May 2018: The beat team with support from their colleagues created Op Valuable to deal with the issue of ASB in Blaby Precinct. The Op was in place between the period of the 13th to the 30th April which involved dedicated Police patrols every evening between 4pm and 8pm. This gave Officers the time to engage with the local youths and shop owners who were pleased with the Police presence. Street Vibe have conducted their first session with the youths, and engaged well. The detached youth workers will also continue to work with the youths. During the period of the Operation there was only one call to Police regarding ASB, which has seen a significant decrease. Patrols will continue where required over the next 4 weeks to ensure the ASB does not return and to support the other agencies working in the area. Update June 2018: The beat team have continued to monitor the location and over the last 3 weeks there have been no reported incidents of ASB in the precinct. Street Vibe are coming towards the end of their sessions, and have not reported any issues with the youths attending. The detached youth workers will continue to engage with the youths on a weekly basis. Issued: June 2018
