Your Local Policing Update

Alert message sent 05/04/2019 13:18:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Great news to start off this month, the burglary figures for the West Leicester are at their lowest level for over 3 years! This is due to the sustained effort of your local police, partners and the public in preventing and deterring this crime.

However we cannot rest on our laurels, please continue to take the necessary precautions to protect your property concentrating on using good quality locks for your windows and doors, looking at external sensor lights and internal lights on a sensor! You can also ask your neighbour to keep an eye on your property while you are out. If you are a tenant then you can still secure your home as long as you have your landlord’s permission!

Over the last month your local police have been assisting with the national police operation to target knife crime called Operation Sceptre. We have used our knife arch at some local areas and also visited local schools to educate young people about how to best protect themselves. If you have information that people in your area are carrying knives then please report this anonymously via Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111. We will continue to educate people against carrying knives and enforce against those that do!

Finally a great result on Kate Street where Leicester City Council’s crime and anti-social behaviour unit have worked with police to obtain a civil injunction to prevent a local man from entering the area where he has caused anti-social behaviour for many years!

Have a happy Easter everyone, I hope you enjoy a few days break! Like always your local police will be working through the holiday to keep you safe!
