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 amount of burglaries around the riverside area.
Issued: April 2017
What we are doing:Due to the increase in burglary dwellings within the Riverside area, high visibility patrols have been increased to identify any potential suspects. Members of the public are encouraged to be extra vigilant and to report any suspicious activity. UPDATE: MAY 2017 There has been a slight decrease in Burglaries on the riverside area however the problem solving plan, on-going patrols and reduction tasking’s are still on-going. We are urging local residents and members of the public to be extra vigilant and to report any suspicious activity. UPDATE : JUNE 2017 Burglaries are unfortunately still occurring on the riverside – Therefore we are urging people to shut, lock and secure windows and doors during the hot weather period. Issued: May 2017
To reduce the amount of cycle theft in the local area.
Issued: December 2016
What we are doing:There has recently been an increase in the amount of cycle theft taking place around the riverside area. – We have been running D-Lock engagements with students, handing out and encouraging the use of D-Locks. If you wish to purchase a D-Lock please visit your local station where you will be able to purchase a D-Lock at a discounted rate of £10 update 09/01/2017- The dedicated neighbourhood team have recently held a number of crime prevention events encouraging the use of D-Locks and advising people of the steps to take to help keep their bikes safe. We have been conducting high visibility patrols around the most problematic areas and have recently seen a reduction in the amount of bike theft in the local area. However this will remain a priority and would encourage those who use a pedal cycle to purchase a D-LOCK as Leicestershire Police see very few theft of bike when a D-Lock was in use. You can still purchase a D-Lock from the Leicestershire Police at the cost of £10. Please be aware we make no profit from the sale of the locks. Update MARCH Good News – We have made two arrests for cycle thefts at the DMU as a result of our extra patrols and both persons have been charged with the offence of Theft Cycle. Due to the above there has been a significant drop in Theft Cycle figures, however we have still had a few thefts since the arrests so please be vigilant and ensure your cycles are locked up safely and securely. T this will remain a priority and would encourage those who use a pedal cycle to purchase a D-LOCK as Leicestershire Police see very few theft of bike when a D-Lock was in use.
