Alert message sent 16/09/2019 18:23:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Good evening

I will no longer be sending out a monthly newsletter , instead I shall send messages out via this link.
All beat Sgts are now sending monthly newsletters out to their respective beats which I hope will allow them to pass on exactly what has been going on within their beat areas , where staff will be so you can speak to them and any other relevant information .

At present Charnwood crime levels are down however we have seen an increase in car thefts as a result of burglary offences . Now that the nights are getting longer and criminals have the cover of darkness, can I please encourage you to review your home security . If you see anything that doesn't feel right please ring the police on 101 or 999 if you feel its necessary .

I am attending a neighbourhood watch meeting this week , I hope that in the coming weeks I will be able to launch a new look neighbourhood watch in  Charnwood , at present Sgt Chris Wharton and partners from Charnwood Borough Council are putting the finishing touches to sign design and ironing out details.

We are still trying to push neighbourhood link in Charnwood , this will in turn be the tool we use to communicate with residents who join Charnwood Watch . Please can you help me by speaking to your neighbours and encourage them to sign up as you kindly did .

My team are working hard to be more visible in the community , we have had some really significant results over the last month , multiple arrests have been made of individuals who have been causing Charnwood residents issues . We will continue to work to identify those who cause the community harm , I hope in due course that Sgts monthly newsletters will include such good work .
Please feel free to follow me on Twitter to get a flavour of what goes on at Charnwood.
