Beat Updates
Oakham Town & Barleythorpe - Local residents bought to the Beat Teams attention that drugs and alcohol were being used by our young people in Oakham and Barleythorpe. We are continuing to target the areas identified with high visibility policing and engagement with the young people in these areas. When required and with necessary grounds we have stopped and searched young people. In the last month a further young person was found to be in possession of cannabis and has been referred to relevant agencies to get help. We have noticed a decline in burglaries in Oakham and Barleythorpe but we are not being complacent and will continue to use resources to target criminality that enters in Rutland using main arterial routes. We are currently running the #DARKERNIGHTS campaign and would ask that you look on the website for further information. The link is below;
Seasonal Greetings - All Rutland Officers and Staff wish all members a Safe & Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
