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 an increase in theft of lead in and around Melton Mowbray and the Vale of Belvoir villages usually happening in the early hours of the morning. Plungar,Thorpe Arnold and Ab Kettleby churches were targeted by thieves between the 6th and 8th of February 2019.
Issued: February 2019
What we are doing:We have increased foot and vehicle patrols around areas known to have lead on the church roof as well as places previously targeted. We conduct regular beat surgeries to gain intelligence and offer crime prevention advice. We are using social media to help in advising villagers to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity. 24/7 patrol officers from Melton and other areas have been fully briefed regarding the problem. If you have any concerns about a vehicle moving about in the night near a church or see any other suspicious activity that may be connected to lead theft please ring 999. Please also consider ringing Crimestoppers which is another way of passing anonymous information to us in addition to 101. Issued: March 2019
To tackle speeding throughout the villages on the Melton Rural North beat. Approximately 80% of community concerns we receive are related to speeding or traffic offences in villages across the Vale, raised by way of Community Consultation at local Beat Surgeries or at events in the area. This continues to be the sole concern of note in the Vale and will continue to be the Beat Priority for the Vale over the coming months.
We welcome any concerns from our residents and will address any issues to the best of our ability once they are identified to us.
Issued: December 2018
What we are doing:The Vale Beat Team and Neighbourhood Proactive Team are tackling the community concern of speeding around the Vale, utilising the different speed monitoring equipment available to them. Some of the highest speeds we encounter are in the villages of Eastwell, Harby, Normanton, Wymondham and Bottesford as well as on the A607 in Croxton Kerrial and Waltham on the Wolds. These are areas that have regular attendance for monitoring and enforcement. In conjunction with Parish Councils and Highways plus our partner agencies including VOSA and DVLA, we have conducted a number of targeted enforcement days throughout 2018 and these will continue into 2019. The Beat Team are regularly out with the Speed Gun and will try to conduct enforcement in all 39 Villages that form part of Melton Rural North. Breach of weight restrictions on Goadby Road, Waltham on the Wolds are also being addressed. Speedgun enforcement in areas of particular concern. Engagement with our local communities will continue and we conduct Beat Surgeries in all our villages throughout the year. Keep checking the "events section at the top of this page for up and coming surgeries you can attend throughout 2019. We look forward to seeing you at one. Issued: March 2019
