Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
Local residents bought to the Beat Teams attention that drugs and alcohol were being used by our young people in Oakham and Barleythorpe. The ages ranged from 15-21yrs of age. This is having a detrimental affect on these young people and the surrounding premises.

What we are doing:We are continuing to target the areas identified with high visibility policing and engagement with the young people in these areas. When required and with necessary grounds we have stopped and searched young people. In the last month a further young person was found to be in possession of cannabis and has been referred to relevant agencies to get help. Several people have been detained under the misuse of drugs act and searched using these powers. Social media reports continue to come in informing us of possible places of interest which I will continue to monitor. Issued: December 2018
