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:In the last 30 days, there has been 5 occurrences of shop lifting in Uppingham. This is a stark rise in figures, and during the most recent occurrence, a member of the public has been assaulted whilst trying to prevent the crime from occurring. This is of public concern and therefore a matter that the beat team will strive to impact in a positive way by working collaboratively with the community, partner agencies and proactive police teams.
Issued: July 2017
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, and the beat team also seeks to collaboratively work with local businesses to promote crime prevention and help to deter, disrupt and prevent future offences. The beat teamrecently met with the Uppingham Business forum and presented on the crime reduction idea, which was well supported and work starts in earnest to get the plan off the ground.
