Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
Theft From Stores-We have recently had a marked increase in reports of thefts from shops in the Harborough area, this not only affects businesses and the economic local community but retail staff can feel intimidated and travelling criminals target the area and carry out other offences. The main targets for shop theft are Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and Homebase but all retail premises and vulnerable to this.
Issued: September 2018
What we are doing:Since we have identified this as a priority we have used a number of different approaches to solve this: We have worked closely with the stores, offering advice, this has led to the speed up of incident reporting and evidence collection. We have targeted repeat offenders and taken positive enforcement action at the first opportunity. We have used the Neighbourhood Proactive Team and local officers to increase the number of both uniformed and plain clothed patrols in the highest hit locations at the most appropriate times. This has both prevented offences and reassured staff that have had to deal with aggressive and anti-social offenders. This is an ongoing issue and we will continue to look at ways to reduce the number of offences and the impact on the community Issued: September 2018
We have had reports from residents of Edwin Court and the wider community of Anti-Social Behaviour related to drug use and offences being committed within the complex and the nearby surrounding area. This is backed up by recent analysis of crime reports related to the address.
Issued: September 2018
What we are doing:We have identified a number of addresses where the majority of incidents are related to and are working closely with other agencies, including local housing providers, to ensure that tenants are aware of the reports and understand the consequences of continuing to act in an anti-social manner. Enforcement activity have and will continue to take place, an s23 Misuse of drugs warrant was recently carried out by the Neighbourhood Proactive Team at an address within Edwin Court, this is currently an ongoing investigation. Officers are carrying out high visibility patrols within the area and will make use of Stop and Search powers when appropriate and lawful. A stolen vehicle was recently found and recovered as a result of these patrols. Other enforcement options, both civil and criminal are currently being looked into and this will continue to be progressed. Issued: September 2018
