Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
Bentley Street, Melton Mowbray - Problems with Drug Dealing. There are many residents living in this street and visitors to addresses who are, it is alleged, dealing in drugs, this is an ongoing problem and is having a negative impact on the community.
Issued: June 2017
What we are doing:A new priority for June 2017. Drug use and local retail crime and other thefts/burglaries are intrinsically linked. A concerted effort to arrest and prosecute offenders will inevitable see a reduction in ASB and an improvement in the overall quality of life for the law abiding majority of residents. Officers will step up patrols and stop/searches when the grounds allow will disrupt and reduce criminal activity. Issued: August 2017
To monitor and deal with underage drinking, violent crime and ASB during the night time economy within Melton Mowbray Town Centre.
Issued: January 2017
What we are doing:MBC and Melton Police have invested in new alcohol screening equipment, as used by Police Officers, to help support door staff in assessing when members of the public have consumed too much alcohol. PC McGrath continues to conduct licensing checks ensuring that standards are met. Work continues to operationally target Underage Drinkers and Drugs offences, some operations will be conducted over the forthcoming months with updates to follow. Meetings with individual licensees are currently taking place to consolidate and improve upon the good work done by all to win the Purple Flag award in 2016 Issued: July 2017
To continue to provide a visible presence during market days in Melton Town Centre, the Cattle Market and the Car Parks from 9am to 5pm on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
Issued: January 2017
What we are doing:The Crime Prevention market stall continues to run on the first Tuesday of every month where advice can be sought and crime prevention equipment purchased. PCSO 6027 Oliver has taken over the running and organising of this stall and is looking at how this can be replicated at the Cattle Market. On the other market days officers continue to patrol in a high visibility capacity which has seen a reduction in retail crime and an improved relationship between stall holders and members of the public.
