Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
There has been growing concerns with vehicle crime in the area. We have received a number of crime reports relating to "Theft from Motor Vehicles". Majority of this is criminals going around and checking car doors. Those vehicles that are insecure have had items stolen. There has been also a few incidents where forced entry has been committed as well. Due to the community concerns "Op Pioneer" has been launched in order to monitor vehicle crime.

What we are doing:Your local beat teams are patrolling your area and speaking to communities giving crime prevention advice to help reduce this issue. We are using social media to speak to the hard to reach communities and have posted various crime prevention advice on social media in order to help people take precautions to avoid them becoming a victim. We have formed good relationships via Neighbourhood Watch schemes and We are urging people to ensure that they have fully locked their vehicle and manually checking the handle that their vehicle is locked. Please ensure you take valuable items out of your vehicle. Your local beat team are constantly speaking to offenders and have management programs in place to ensure they are not re-offending. please call us if you see any suspicious activity. If you have any CCTV footage please get in touch with your local team via the Team tab on this page. Issued: November 2018
After a number of incidents of knife crime in the local area and speaking to the local community there was a concern about an increase in knife crime. Your local beat team are working together with communities and partners to tackle this issue. As a result Op ELAPSE has been launched.
Issued: November 2018
What we are doing:We have increased Police patrols around the Eyres Monsell and Saffron Lane Estate in particular looking to identify persons carrying knives and deter further incidents. As part of Op ELAPSE we are monitoring and visiting persons involved in recent incidents. We have also placed a knife amnesty bin in the Eyres Monsell Community centre for people to surrender any knives without any police action being taken. We are also using social media to educate and communicate with a wider audience.
