Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
2017 has seen a stark rise in the number of shop lifting offences in Uppingham, compared to 2016. In fact, the first half of 2017 saw offences exceed the entire total in 2017 - plus an extra 20%. The offences are believed to be being committed by criminals who are not local to the area, rather from Northamptonshire, so there has been a gap in intelligence around identifying and locating those responsible. The local community have asked us to address this issue and help crack down on offenders.

What we are doing:So far the local beat team have established intelligence links with officers from Corby to attempt to identify the persons responsible for committing the recent offences. Two persons have been arrested and a further three suspects have been identified and will be actively sought in regards to the matter. The local team have also met with a retail crime partnership, with a view of pioneering a similar initiative in Uppingham and will work closely with the Uppingham Business Forum to try and establish this. The Eastern Counties neighbourhood pro-active team (NPT) have also been contacted and will be drafted in to help actively seek out offenders. The beat team also seeks to collaboratively work with local businesses to promote crime prevention and help to deter, disrupt and prevent future offences. Recent meetings with the Police and Crime Commissioner, and Assistant Chief Constable of Leicestershire Police have discussed this issue and talks continue to forge this collaboration.
