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 usually happening in the early hours of the morning. Scalford and Nottingham Rd are particularly affected. The main victims of this crime are home owners with lead on and around window frames. Churches and businesses have also been targetted by the thieves.
Issued: January 2019
What we are doing:We have increased foot and vehicle patrols around areas known to have lead on the building roof as well as areas previously targeted. We conduct regular beat surgeries to gain intelligence and offer crime prevention advice. We are using social media to help in advising residents and all members of the public to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity. 24/7 patrol officers from Melton and other areas have been fully briefed regaiding the problem. Please also consider ringing Crimestoppers which is another way of passing information to us in addition to 101. Issued: January 2019
Several deliberate fires have taken place on and around Dieppe Way and Fairmead Estate in Melton Mowbray over the past year. Mostly vehicles but some outbuildings and sheds too.
Issued: January 2019
What we are doing:The Fairmead estate has seen an increased policing presence in and around the estate in both proactive patrols and community engagement. The heightened patrols may have had an effect however, there is no way to know this for certain. Officers have been working from the Fairmead Community Centre on a daily basis and this has been advertised on social media as an opportunity for locals to come and speak to officers about any local “issues”. Being a policing priority for Melon 24/7 officers also have this as a location for extra patrols. The Fire Service have been conducting their “Firebeat” patrols on bicycles engaging with young people and have put up a number of signs in the area. Issued: January 2019
