Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
Robberies - Police and the public have identified an increase in robbery offences during the Night Time Economy. Offences have been reported within the city and also across towards the DeMontfort University Campus.
Issued: November 2018
What we are doing:Officers are working hard to identify and arrest offenders. Pro-active intelligence led patrols have been commenced and aim to reduce the amount of victims. Several operations have been planned to provide a robust response to the problem including the use of a passive drugs dog in the city centre. Investigators are also working hard to secure the best available evidence to bring offenders to justice. Issued: November 2018
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 NOVEMBER - Local officers will be doing some engagement events around bike security and will be selling D-Locks. When using a pushbike and coming in to the city centre we would recommend using the facility located at the bike store, Town Hall Square. D-locks can be purchased at Mansfield House Police Station. Cycle theft will continue to remain as a priority throughout November. Issued: October 2018
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.
Issued: September 2018
What we are doing:UPDATE NOVEMBER - We have been deploying the beat bus at the most problematic areas to ensure a high visibility presence, local business have provided positive feedback and we will continue to deploy the bus. Officers are working with the local support services to ensure the right support is offered to the right people and that each case is looked at on an individual basis. Issued: October 2018
