Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
Since September 2018 there have been a number of commercial premises burgled in Melton town including cafes, factories, pubs and shops.
Issued: January 2019
What we are doing:We continue with patrols around the town centre and dark back streets/loading bays/fire escapes. We work closely with retailers around any suspicious activity and support and encourage retailers to fit and improve current CCTV systems which not only offers security to them but can assist with enquiries for other crimes. A number of arrests of known burglars have been made including that of Melton man Mitchell Ailmore, who at Leicester Crown Court on the 15th of January 2019 received more than three years in prison. Issued: January 2019
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: December 2018
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. Issued: January 2019
There has been ongoing issues in the town centre with groups of youths who keep climbing on the rooftops of several buisnesses in the town centre. Damage is being caused and there is concern for the youths' safety.
Issued: December 2018
What we are doing:Patrols are being carried out in the town centre at the locations where access is happening and businesses are being advised about how best to prevent this such as items such as securing bins which are often used to climb up. Issued: January 2019
