Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
You told us:To tackle anti-social behaviour in the skate park on Firth Park, Uppingham.
Issued: June 2017
What we are doing:A rise in ASB on the skate park has recently been bought to the attention of the local beat team by concerned residents. This appears to be an issue centred around one ring leader who is causing the majority of the issues; including littering and aggressive behaviour to other park users. This individual has been identified and the beat team have made contact with them, and will work with partner agencies to tackle the issue head on and prevent further problems developing. Updated: June 2017
You told us:To tackle speeding along with other motoring offences along the main arterial routes through Uppingham. Speeding is always raised when speaking with the community, so we will continue to highlight the issue through social media and high visibility patrols.
Issued: January 2017
What we are doing:In the last month we have conducted 4 speed monitoring operations in Uppingham along the main arterial routes. Whilst there have been a high number of cars checked through the speed gun, none have been found to be significantly over the limit which require prosecution. One vehicle was stopped and words of advice were issued, however apart from this one instance the levels of speed have generally been to the limit, which is commendable. Whilst we will continue to monitor speed from time to time, it no longer appears as big of an issue as previously reported. We will soon be closing this priority. Updated: June 2017
