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 cycle theft taking place around 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. Issued: December 2016
