Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
To reduce the incidents of drug use in the Toilets on Nelson Mandela Park.
Issued: December 2017
What we are doing:The police have received a number of reports regarding the toilets located on Nelson Mandela Park. The issue are mainly around people using the toilets as a place to take drugs and leaving the paraphilia behind. Members of the public have also reported that they feel intimidated when using the facilities as there is occasionally people sitting in there but not using them. Local PCSO’s have put a plan together to help resolve these issues so members of the public can feel safe when using the toilets. They will be making regular patrols to the area and working alongside the council to help clean up the toilets. This plan will then be reviewed to see if any further action is required. An update on the situation will be provided in one months’ time. Issued: December 2017
To reduce cycle theft in the area of the riverside.
Issued: December 2017
What we are doing:The local Sergeant Neil Kendrick has noticed an increase in the amount of Cycle theft taking place around the riverside area, officers will patrol the local area to help deter crime. Cycle theft can be a difficult crime to solve, but there are ways that you can help protect your bike. Use a strong lock, a D-LOCK is recommended by the Leicestershire Police that is of a sold secure rating. D-Locks can be purchased from Mansfield house Police station for cost price of £10, we do not profit from these sales. Lock your bike in a well-lit area if at night time and try to have CCTV covering the location. Register your bike with Immobilise.com, this is a free website that you can create an account and register all of your property. If in the event it is stolen the Police then have a better chance of getting it returned to you. The Leicestershire Police can provide you with a bike passport which is a simple card that contains all your details of the bike which includes a picture. Officers will be arranging consultation to sell these items and we would ask that you keep an eye out on our twitter and the force website for consultation dates. Issued: December 2017
