Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
Having analysed our crime over the past three years there have been a spike of vehicle crimes occurring in and around the Countesthorpe area. Most of these vehicles are locked and suspect(s) have used unknown means to gain entry into the vehicles. On a few occasions windows had been smashed to gain entry.
There are also another group focused on theft of tools from vans.
Issued: September 2018
What we are doing:In September/October 2018 Operation Yardage was instigated which consisted of officers on dedicated patrols with support, where possible, from Response Officers in identified areas of the beat where vehicle crime is occurring. Various tactics are being used to attempt to reduce this type of crime in the location including Hi-viz patrols, covert plain cloth patrols. Using intelligence and information to visit past offenders for vehicle crime and offering support from other agencies to divert them from re-offending (if accepted). Social Media is also being used to highlight incidents and to raise awareness to lock vehicles and remove valuables. Although several criminals have been arrested, others continue to commit crime focused on vehicles. Issued: October 2018
