Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
We have received reports that local youths are climbing onto the roof at the rear of the main shopping area in Wigston Town Centre. There has been cases where they have broken roof tiles belonging to one particular shop and have thrown them around which also causes a danger to those walking on public walkways as well as danger of being on the roof as well.
We are working with local partners and using social media with local businesses to share information to identify suspects causing this issue. We urge members of the public to remain vigilant at all times when visiting Wigston Town Centre. If you do see youths on the roof I would urge you to call us immediately so we can dispatch officers to identify who they are.

What we are doing:Your local beat team are working closely with Wigston retailers and have identified the areas where the youths are climbing in order to get onto the roofs. We have also identified a number of youths and some are not local to our area. However the beat team are monitoring those individuals to prevent any further incidents from happening. Furthermore incidents have clearly reduced and we are aiming to work with retailers to secure access to their roofs. Issued: February 2019
