Issued: October 2017
What we are doing:We have received a number of complaints regarding thefts and street life offenses within the LRI. (Drug taking and begging) Sgt Neil Kendrick and his team and The High Harm PCSO Phil Grimwood will be working closely with the hospital to build a plan of action to help reduce these issues. Remember an open bag in an open invitation! Keep your valuables out of sight! Issued: October 2017
To reduce the amount of drug use in Newarke street public toilets .
Issued: September 2017
What we are doing:A number of complaints have been received stating that the public toilets are being used to take drugs. The Leicestershire Police are working closely with partner agencies to ensure the right support is being offered to those using the drugs, enforcement will be utilised for those causing most harm. UPDATE OCTOBER: Issues where raised about the amount of people using this location to take drugs, location has been changed and a Police operation has recently taken place to help resolve the problems. We have listened to your concerns and as a result ran an operation, supported by partner agencies concerning rough sleeping, drug taking, and street drinking and begging. The operation dealt with criminal offences, as well as supporting others who were in need of services. We encountered 75 persons (some, on more than 1 occasion) of which 12 people were dealt with for criminal offences, 9 dispersal notices given and several others were dealt with by words of advice and at the same time offered support through partners and the voluntary sector. We would encourage you to continue to speak to your local beat team. It is only with your help and information that we are able to tackle issues that matter to you and those that visit the city.
