Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
“During the half term period, we had a spike in phone calls about a group of youths causing issues for staff and members of the public at McDonalds. The main perpetrators have been identified and dealt with accordingly. Since then, we have seen a drop in incidents being reported at McDonalds and are continuing to work with staff to reduce anti-social behaviour.
Prior to this, the Wigston community experienced many issues with certain young people in the town centre where the neighbourhood team led several operations on different evenings. This consisted of having an increased police presence, using Section 35 Dispersal Power’s and working with local businesses to deter the problem. The individuals who were causing the problems were dealt with in several different ways. Some were giving banning letters local businesses, others were taken home and one individual was issued a Section 59 for using a moped inappropriately. If used again in this manner, the moped can be seized.
Please note that we have also had a rise in burglaries being reported to us since mid-February, some happening in the afternoon/evening and others overnight. We are being proactive in our patrols but please be vigilant and report any suspicious circumstances to the police.”

What we are doing:The Team have been linking in with the local stores, exchanging current information and intelligence around who is offending in the area. They are working with Citywatch to increase radio coverage in a hope that more stores will join the scheme and be able to interact with each other as incidents are occurring, with the support from the Police. Patrols have been increased in the area. Issued: August 2017
