Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
Knife Crime Reduction Initiative. The New Parks beat and specifically Aikman Avenue and surrounding streets has suffered a higher than average number of knife related offences.
We have also identified some 'habitual knife carriers' in the area who we will attempt to divert away from offending but if they don't we will target for enforcement activity.
Issued: September 2018
What we are doing:Local PCs and PCSO are currently allocated to specific patrols to target knife crime. This will involve regular high visibility patrols in the area, engagement with local people to identify information and targeting of those carrying knives. A local event to engage local people in the fight against knife crime will be held in the New Parks on 29th September 2018. Please view the events section of this page in coming weeks for more info on this event. Issued: July 2018
Local residents report a large number of ASB incidents occurring in and around the shops complex at Sharmon Crescent, Leicester.
Youths causing noise, drug use, speeding vehicles, Nitrous Oxide use, possession of knives.
Closely linked to Sharmon Cres is Kirke Walk and the rear of the The Shoemakers Public House. Spillage from the issues in Sharmon Cres seem to appear in Kirke Walk also.
Issued: May 2018
What we are doing:An address on Sharmon Crescent have received a final warning regarding ASB originating from their address. If reports continue then legal action against the occupants could be taken. An address on Kirke Walk has been given acceptable behaviour contract with a number of conditions which if broken may lead to legal action being taken. The location is a police patrol priority. A temporary CCTV camera will be installed in the area to record evidence of ASB if it occurs. Street based youth teams have been visiting the area to engage with young people in the area and signpost them to other activities in the community. There will be a community meeting on Wednesday 12th September 5:30pm-6:30pm at the Braunstone Frith Recreation Centre, Sharmon Crescent where local people are invited to come along to here about the work of police and partners in the area.
