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 drugs use and anti-social behaviour at Infirmary Square and Nelson Mandela Park toilets
Issued: February 2018
What we are doing:There have been on-going problems at this location caused by a number of individuals taking drugs in the toilets which can be intimidating for members of the public, as well as unsafe due to various drugs paraphernalia that is left behind. In addition to regular patrols and checks of individuals who we believe to be engaging in drugs use at the toilets, a meeting is taking place between Riverside beat officers and the City Council. The aim of this is to establish a partnership plan on tackling these problems and ensuring that members of the public can feel safe when accessing the toilets. UPDATE March 2018 This problem has been brought to our attention and we have been conducting regular patrols of the public toilets. We have been working and liaising with partner agencies who have been conducting there checks and we are monitoring the situation. We have seen a recent improvement, but we are looking at enforcement and other options open to us. To disrupt and tackle these issues we are gathering information and looking at resolving the root cause of the problems. Issued: February 2018
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. UPDATE JAN 2018 Officers continue to work on the prevention of this type of crime and would ask that people follow the advice above. If you have any information regarding cycle theft please do not hesitate to contact your local beat team. UPDATE FEB 2018 We have noticed an increase in the number of bicycle thefts that have taken place over the last month. To deal with this, we are checking local CCTV footage to try and identify the offenders as well as patrolling areas where bicycles are left and locked up. If you see anybody acting suspiciously around locked bicycles, call us on 101. In the past, cycle thieves have been detained and arrested following telephone calls and information provided from the public. Your assistance and co-operation in helping us catch these offenders is highly valued and greatly appreciated. UPDATE March 2018 We have had some success in this area and we have arrested 3 individuals and we are currently awaiting the outcomes to these individuals. Even with this success we are still determined to continue to take positive action in relation to cycle theft. We are working with other partner agencies and colleges and universities to reduce this further. Issued: February 2018
To reduce the amount of anti-social behaviour incidents taking place on West Street.
Issued: November 2017
What we are doing:A number of incidents have been reported to the Leicestershire Police regarding anti-social behaviour. The local dedicated beat team will be reviewing the issues and a problem solving plan will be implemented. Issues such as street drinking and drug use have been identified and the officers will be working with support agencies to review possible partnership working. UPDATE DECEMBER – patrols have continued throughout November, this is an on-going problem and will remain a priority throughout December UPDATE JAN 2018 A large number of foot and vehicle patrols have been carried out over the month of December and every patrol has proven negative with no one being in the area, however this will remain as a priority for the month of January and we would ask that if you have any concerns with the local area you contact your local beat officer via the Force website. UPDATE March 2018 The problems are currently on going and the beat team are conducting regular patrols to the area, regular consultations are taking place and we actively seek ways of enforcement where possible.
