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 reports of vehicles being attacked and rammed in the layby on the B4114 near the Sapcote turn off.
Issued: September 2018
What we are doing:This month we have had issues in the layby just off the B4114 near to the Sapcote turn off. There have been reports of vehicles being attacked and rammed in the layby. Each of these attacks have been recorded as crime reports and enquiries are on-going in relation to this. Over the years we have had reports of this layby being used for inappropriate behaviour and has been a priority in the past. We are now working with the environmental health team at Blaby District Council and also the highways department at the county council to clear foliage in the area . The aim will be to clear the site in order to deter any form of unacceptable behaviour and make it generally a better and friendly environment for all to use. Officers have been working through the night in order to provide a highly visible policing presence at the location. We have also been working with sexual health workers at TRADE. TRADE will be visiting the location once a month in order to engage with any persons using the location as a meeting place. Their aim is to provide free, confidential health advice, information, services & support for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans communities of Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland. local officers are planning on visiting the location over the next couple of weeks with representatives from both Blaby District Council and the Highways department in order to establish a plan of action and a date where we can clear the site.
