Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
Bike Theft - After a significant amount of work around the issue of cycle theft it has been identified that the incidents have become more isolated to Gallowtree gate, Humberstone gate and the Clock Tower. Cycle theft does still occur at other location, however those stated have become the local team’s main focus.
Issued: October 2018
What we are doing:UPDATE JANUARY - Cycle Theft has been a problem around the City Centre for a number of months. A lot of bike theft can be prevented if the owner secures their bike with a strong lock. Leicestershire Police have been selling and will continue to sell D-Locks at cost price of £10. The chances of your bike being stolen reduces massively if the proper prevention and care is taken. We also highly recommend using the bike park located in the Town Hall Square. Please visit Leicester.gov.uk – secure cycle parking, for more information. There will be a number of events organised by the local beat team in which you will be able to pick up a bike lock or you can visit Mansfield House Police Station. Issued: January 2019
Begging & ASB Clock Tower
Once again we see this concern adopted as a priority for the City. In the past we have managed to reduce the amount of reported incidents/ concerns from businesses but unfortunately we are again seeing an increase at various locations across the City.

In the past we have managed to reduce the amount of reported incidents/ concerns from businesses but unfortunately we are again seeing an increase at various locations across the City. Leicestershire Police Beat Bus will be placed at strategic points to help deter begging and anti-social behaviour, alongside regular patrols around the City Centre. We are currently reviewing our joining forces best practice for dealing with such incidents to combine working practice to ensure we get the best possible results. Issued: January 2019
