Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
There are several youths that are riding mopeds in the Wigston area wearing no helmets. These problems have arisen since the start of April where we have taken an increased amount of phone calls from members of the public. The mopeds often have no registration plates, are being driving on pavements and parks. The reports are being received in the afternoon and evening time.
How has the Priority been determined?: Since 30/03/2017, the police have received 20 phone calls reporting youths riding mopeds with no helmets and displaying no registration plates.
Issued: May 2017
The neighbourhood Team will be addressing the long term issue and working with stores to reduce the level of current Thefts from Stores.
Issued: February 2017
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: April 2017
Increase in Anti social Behaviour by a group of youths throwing, stones, apples and missiles at vehicles and property causing damage and general nuisance to residents.
Issued: November 2016
What we are doing:A group of youths have attended Wigston Police Station and jointly with the council, police and youth offending service have signed an Acceptable Behaviour Contract. These have been reviewed on a regular basis and it has been evident that some young people have engaged and others have continued to commit ASB. Work is now being completed around the Police using other tools in the tool box and Civil Injunctions are being explored. Patrols have been increased in the area to target the youths involved. Multi-agency work with the council, youth offending service and owners of key business locations in Wigston continue to work together to reduce the Anti-Social Behaviour of a key group of individuals who remain on Acceptable Behaviour Contracts at the present time.
