Your Local Policing Update

Alert message sent 14/12/2018 11:22:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Your local priorities for the West Leicester Neighbourhood Policing are to prevent knife crime, to tackle the use and supply of drugs by organised criminals and to reduce instances of burglary and car crime. I am pleased to say that we have had some great results over the past month in relation to all of these priorities!

We complete weekly dedicated patrols across the area specifically targeting those believed to be carrying knives. One such patrol on Noel Street led to a large hunting knife being seized and the carrier being charged with an offence! We shall continue this work and look for your support in identifying those who you believe carry knives in public.

Your Westcotes beat team have closed down a number of cannabis in the West End during the last month taking well over £100,000 worth of drugs out of the hand of serious organised criminals. Their work has also protected two streets in the area from the fire risk of living close to such factories! Please continue to report your suspicions by telephoning 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111

In the past few days your Fosse Ward team have arrested two persons trying to get away having just broken into a car on King Richards Road. This means two prolific criminals are now off the streets! Please remove all your valuables from your car when unattended as we try to reduce this crime.

We have now moved to a new police station on our own existing site on the corner of Hinckley Road and Norfolk Street. Our front office is open 10am-4pm Monday to Friday as usual and the same local policing teams covering the Westcotes, Fosse and New Parks are based here.

Finally congratulations to PC 557 Matt Eld who this year won the much coveted Leicestershire Police ‘Beat Bobby of The Year’ award. This is suitable reward for Matt’s consistent excellent work and dedication to the community of the Westcotes Ward. Well done Matt! Your Westcotes neighbourhood policing team were also highly commended in the beat team of the year award so again well done to Sergeant Spencer Dyer and team!

As we approach the Christmas period please think of your local policing team who work throughout the holiday period so that you are your community are kept safe over Christmas. Thank you for your support and I wish you and your families a very merry Christmas and a prosperous and Happy New Year.
