Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
Officers have identified a high level of public concern following a number of incidents of school children being approached or followed by strangers in vehicles in the South Wigston area in a two week period. Victims and their parents have been visited and taken details about incidents. Most of the vehicles and persons involved have been identified and spoken to. No offences have been identified at this stage although there are a small number of remaining enquiries. Extra patrols have been conducted in the affected areas of South Wigston at school times and in the early evenings.
A stranger danger event was held in conjunction with Shane Varney’s Karate Club where inputs were provided to parents and children. Further inputs are planned at the primary schools and two nurseries in the coming weeks. Social media and Neighbourhood link have been used to update, reassure and educate around Stranger danger and these incidents in particular.

There have been a number of calls regarding anti-social behaviour, criminal damage and public order offences at Tesco South Wigston, locations on Blaby Road, South Wigston, and at the nearby Bassett Centre over the last few weeks. These incidents involve groups of youths, some of whom have been identified. Extra patrols will be conducted to prevent further problems, provide reassurance and to identify those involved in any further incients. Work is being done with those identified as being involved in conjunction with other agencies and will also be offered to other young people identified
