Your Local Policing Update

Alert message sent 12/08/2019 10:38:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Your local policing teams based at Hinckley Road are continuing to fight the dangerous use of property to grow large scale ‘cannabis-factories’. This month drugs warrants have been completed at addresses on Celt Street, Westcotes Drive and Upperton Road with thousands of pounds worth of drugs taking out of the hands of serious organised criminals!

The earlier we catch these properties the better so if you notice a strong pungent smell coming from a property, with curtains always shut and sometimes the sounds of fans then please report your concerns via Crimestoppers 0800 555 111.

Along with the Leicester City Council Youth Service we are supporting a new youth club called “Lad’s Lounge” – Only Boys Aloud” for young men aged 13-19 years old at New Parks Youth Centre on St Oswald’s Road every Thursday 6:30pm-8:30pm. Young men from around the city are able to attend. For more information follow Leicester City Youth Service on Facebook or on Instagram via ‘’ (or review the attached document).

I am pleased to announce that staff at Hinckley Road Police Station have been nominated for awards for their excellent service to your communities! Congratulations to New Parks/Western PCSO Pete Smith who was awarded the Leicestershire Police PCSO of the year. Also congratulations to the Fosse Dedicated Neighbourhood Team who won the Leicestershire Police Team of the Year award!

The time has also come for you to nominate your local officers for Beat Bobby of the Year! This is the award for Leicestershire’ best beat police officer which was won by our very own PC Matt Eld last year! Can Matt retain his title or can another officer on our team take his crown? Your local officers eligible for the award are:

Fosse: PC 4694 Ally Dryden, PC 4709 Alex Baxter, PC 4686 Fiona Espin;
Western/New Parks: PC 1228 Dave Martin, PC 3155 Matt Lapidge;
Westcotes: PC 557 Matt Eld; PC 1115 Stephen Clarke; PC 2054 Tam Singh-Baines.

Send your nominations including the officer's name and beat, along with a brief explanation why you believe they should be nominated to or Ciaran Fagan, Crime Correspondent, Leicester Mercury, 16 New Walk, Leicester, LE1 6TF

On a final note I am pleased to welcome Sergeant 1966 Anil Mehta who becomes our new Westcotes Sergeant replacing Sergeant Spencer Dyer. Anil will be out meeting the local community and partners in the coming weeks and months!

See you next month!
