Beat Updates
Oakham Town & Barleythorpe - You told us that youths and street drinkers are causing Anti-Social Behaviour inside the Bus Station preventing people from using the facilities. Damage had been caused inside the premises and abusive language was being used. We are working closely with the Community Safety Team from Rutland Council who manage the site. Young people caught on CCTV causing damage have already been identified and measures put in place to prevent them offending again. We will speak to the young people and ask them why they spend so much time in the Bus Station. High visibility patrols will take place and inappropriate behaviour will be challenged.
Local residents bought to the Beat Teams attention that drugs and alcohol were being used by our young people in Oakham and Barleythorpe. The ages ranged from 15-21yrs of age. This is having a detrimental effect on these young people and the surrounding premises. Local Officers have been actively targeting areas that have been identified as locations where drug activity takes place as well as using intelligence led policing to challenge people and vehicles suspected to be involved in drug use activity. We have used Engage which supports young people with alcohol and drug related issues to direct them away from using illegal substances.
Uppingham - There has been a rise in the number of reports of drug dealing/taking at licenced premises in Uppingham, and amongst youths hanging around in the street. You have told us this through messages on Facebook, Twitter, in person and telephone calls to police. We are working with local pubs to combat this issue, raise awareness and enforce bans. - We are conducting pro-active patrols in affected areas, and will in some cases carry out "plain clothes" patrols to catch the offenders red handed. - We have created a "Problem Management Profile" which helps co-ordinate the beat teams’ response to the issue, as well as highlighting it to senior management to gain support. - We are seeking help from specialist teams within Leicestershire Police to help identify the source of the drugs and target it at the root.
