Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
There have been concerns raised by the Parish Council and residents in the Countesthorpe area of suspicious cold callers encouraging residents to have unnecessary work completed on their house for extravagant amounts of money.
Those residents are predominantly elderly and are put under pressure and worry by the callers with false stories ranging from the property will fall down, to they will be evicted if they don't have the work completed there and then.
We will liaise with partner agencies including BDC, Housing and Trading Standards to support the identification of vulnerable areas and residents and take action against those who are identified as conducting this sort of behaviour.
We ask that that you remain vigilant and pass on any information to ourselves or Blaby District Council or Trading standards which may assist us in trying to crack down on this behaviour. Please contact us for advice or to report suspicious activity - 101 or 999 in an emergency. Or alternatively if you wish to attend one of our beat surgeries then please come along and let us know.
