Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
To reduce the amount of cycle theft in the area of Clarendon Park.
Issued: January 2018
What we are doing:Leicestershire Police have recently seen a small rise in the amount of cycle theft around the Clarendon Park area. Officers will be reviewing the situation and preparing a problem solving plan, an update on this will be provided in February. Leicestershire Police advise that when you lock your bike ensure you are using a sold secure lock. D-Locks are a lot more effective at protecting your bike. Try to secure your bike in well-lit areas and if possible under CCTV. Leicestershire Police provide a bike passport, this can be downloaded from the force website. It is a small card that contains all of the vital information on your bike, we would also recommend that you register your bike and any other valuables on immobilise.com, so if your bike is stolen there is a much better chance of getting it back to you. Officers often recover bikes but without owners registering them it is impossible to return them to the rightful owner. D-locks can be purchased from Mansfield House Police station at cost price of £10:00. Leicestershire Police do not profit from the sale of D-Locks. UPDATE FEB 2018 There have been 7 reported thefts of pedal cycle during the month of January. The local beat team continue to work hard to prevent thefts occurring. Local officers are asking for the communities assistance in reducing the opportunities available for cycle thieves; applying a good quality lock to your bike, securing it out of sight, recording basic details and having a recent photograph within a bike passport (available from us). UPDATE March 2018 We have had some success in this area and we have arrested 3 individuals and we are currently awaiting the outcomes to these individuals. Even with this success we are still determined to continue to take positive action in relation to cycle theft. We are working with other partner agencies and colleges and universities to reduce this further. APRIL 2018 During the Month of March the Clarendon park beat team have been focusing on theft of cycles in the area covered by the team. We have been conducting high visibility patrols in and around the beat area at locations where we have previous had cycles taken. This has been shown to have a positive effect as over the past month of March our cycle theft has dramatically dropped to 2 thefts of cycles. We have been promoting the use of D Locks at our beat surgeries which we have been holding around the beat. We have also been working closely with our educational establishments on the area to reduce cycle thefts. We are still keeping this priority for April as we feel we there is still some work to be done to reduce cycle thefts Issued: April 2018
To reduce the amount of burglaries in the area of Clarendon Park.
Issued: December 2017
What we are doing:Historically burglary increases around the festive season, and officers have planned for this by increasing our Neighbourhood patrols late into the night. There are a number of things that you can do to help protect your home and we strongly advise you follow some simple crime prevention advice. Keep doors and windows locked, even if you are popping in to the garden or go upstairs. Always remove your key from a locked door and keep valuable such as cash, jewellery and keys out of sight from windows. Lock you garden gates and fences to prevent easy access to your garden and try to possibly install a light and or a visible alarm box. If you are going on holiday do not put it on social media and ask a friend to collect the mail and open and close the curtains. Christmas is coming up and we all know how much packaging ends up waiting for the refuse collection. Think if they can see all the boxes they know what’s in your house. You can register all of your belongings on immobilise.com so if anything is stolen it give the police a better chance of getting the items back to their rightful owners. We want you to enjoy the up and coming celebrations and don’t want you to worry about crime but would ask that you think about taking as many precautions as possible to help keep your home safe. UPDATE JAN 2018 A Police operation was put in place to ensure that the right resources could target the issues. Officers extended their shifts to capture the most problematic hours and high visibility patrols were conducted randomly throughout December. Crime prevention advice was issued on the last update and we would strongly recommend that people continue to follow this advice. UPDATE FEB 2018 Officers are continuing to work hard to reassure the community and prevent further occurrences of burglary. Patrols have been increased and several offenders have been dealt with by police teams but this work is on-going. Prevention is the most important thing when it comes to this type of crime. Local officers will be getting the key prevention messages to residents by the way of leaflet drops and local engagements. Advice will also be going out over social media platforms, such as Facebook and Twitter. If you have any concerns or would like any advice please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. The Clarendon Park team are based at Mansfield House in the City Centre, but also have a beat office on Victoria Park. This is not an operational police station; however they do hold community consultations there. Further details can be found on the events tab. UPDATE March 2018 Since the start of January we have seen a reduction in the amount of burglaries. A policing operation has reduced the breaks by placing strategic patrols towards the problem areas both uniform and non-uniform. Enhanced investigation on the reported breaks has led to significant arrests. This has reduced the breaks significantly. We are aware that this area will have breaks and local teams are re-visiting victims and speaking to the community about security. UPDATE: April 2018 During the Month of March we noticed a drop in burglaries (residential and non residential) on the beat from the work being done by the beat team. There were 10 reports offences of burglary which the Police investigated. The Clarendon team still endeavour to visit our victims of burglary on the area as we understand support is essential when this type of crime occurs and this will remain a priority for us during the month of April 2018. We will still be offering support and advice to all residents and visitors to the area at our beat surgeries which are advertised on the Force website. Issued: April 2018
