Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
Vehicle Crime - Vehicle crime has become a priority due to the increased number of incidents taking place around the local area. This includes NCP car parks and on street parking around the Riverside area.
Issued: May 2018
What we are doing:Local officers will be increasing high visibility patrols and looking at ways to help improve this type of crime. When parking please ensure you remove any valuable from view. Empty the glove box and leave it open, remove all change from the vehicle and make sure it is locked. If you see anything suspicious please call 101, always call 999 in an emergency if life is in danger or the crime is taking place at the time of calling. Issued: May 2018
Residential Burglary - The Riverside Team have conducted a number of community engagement events and reviewed the crime for the area. After a number of burglaries and talking with the local residents it has been decided that, burglary upon a residential property will be a priority for the Riverside Team.
Issued: May 2018
What we are doing:The local officers are currently reviewing all of the incidents that have taken place and putting a problem solving plan together. Leicestershire Police would recommend you follow some simple crime prevention advice to help prevent such crime. When you are out at night leave a light on, if you are going on holiday tell a trusted person to keep an eye on your property and do not advertise it publically that you are away from your on social media. During any hot weather DO NOT leave any windows open and be sure to secure all doors. An open window is an open invitation. You can register your valuable on Immobilise.com, in the event that an item is stolen it give us a better chance at returning it to you. If you have any queries or see anything suspicious please call 101, always call 999 in an emergency if life is in danger or the crime is taking place at the time of calling. Issued: May 2018
