Now let me tell you a little Secret

Alert message sent 13/09/2018 01:12:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Dear Members of South Leicester

Hello, hope all is well? I would like to update everyone on the progress so far involving the persons using scooters to commit crime in our area. I would firstly like to thank all who have made contact with us via social media and called us directly with vital information that allowed us to carry out investigations.
So far we have arrested 4 persons in connection to these scooter thefts, ASB and in a few cases robbery. This is still being investigated and hopefully we will give you a further update on this. Please can you continue to call us if you see similar incidents involving scooters as without your help we would not have been able to make such good progress.

OpBehold Topic

Just to give you an update on how we are doing with our Burglary OP. We are patrolling in your area and also have visited some of our previous victims of Burglary. We have given them reassurance and to ensure they have considered some of the crime prevention suggestions to avoid them becoming a victim again. These things do take time to overcome and can affect people mentally for a very long time.
Just a really quick overview on the Burglary stats starting 1st Sept till now are as follows:

Knighton – 9
Freeman Ward (Saffron Est) – 13
Eyres Monsell – 1
Aylestone – 0
Wigston - 2
South Wigston – 1
Oadby - 2

Things to note:
We had a call in the Oadby area of an Audi Saloon in Navy Blue looking at houses. Please remain vigilant and call us with the information and do not delay. It is also best to contact your Coordinator as well if you are in a Neighbourhood Watch scheme. This way you are sharing information within your community and there is greater chance to get those horrible criminals caught.

Finally I’m sure you have all heard of the SelectaDNA which is a marking identification tool to mark up your valuables. Please see attached leaflet for more information and you can order this online via On the leaflet you only have a 10% discount being just under £50. Now let me tell you a little secret! As you are a Neighbourhood Link member if you use code “NHWLEICESTERSHIRE”. You can purchase this for only £20 directly from the company. Have a look at the videos it’s really worth considering if you have expensive and sentimental items.

Thanks for using Neighbourhood Link. If you want a user guide to get the most out of the system then please reply me and I will email it to you in an acrobat reader format.
