Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
We have had an increased number of reports that relate to theft from vehicles, specifically power tools stolen from vans. We understand that offences like can have a more serious impact than just the loss of property and can cause financial hardship as the owners may be unable to work whilst the equipment is replaced. This offence is not linked to specific area of the beat.
Issued: November 2018
What we are doing:A neighbourhood problem management plan (PMP) has been created to look at this issue. The neighbourhood team have been making contact with local businesses that sell tools and are arranging some tool marking sessions for tradespeople. Although this will not prevent the offence it may help in getting property back to its rightful owner. Leicestershire and neighbouring police forces recover large powers of power tools, often we are unable to return this property as we need to be able to prove ownership to a standard, marked equipment and recorded serial numbers makes this easier. This is a larger force priority and we are working with other departments to identify offenders and use all enforcement powers avaliable. Issued: November 2018
