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.

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. A referral to YISP has been made to find ways this young person can be diverted from ASB and the beat team continues to look at other ways to solve the issue, including working with housing and ensuring CCTV covers the skate park at all times of day to record any events.
