New Year Message

Alert message sent 31/12/2019 18:15:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Good evening
Im in the process of starting to write my community safety partnership update for January 2020 this evening , looking at the overall picture im really please to say that overall crime is down in Charnwood . The teams are briefed tonight and already out and about dealing with incidents however we are already looking forward to next year and planning on how we will decrease crime and anti social behaviour and importantly increase residents confidence in your local police in Charnwood .
In relation to crime over the past few weeks , we saw an increase in vehicle related crime especially the theft of catalytic converters from Toyota and Mercedes vehicles . This thankfully has slowed down locally , other neighbourhood areas are still having reported offences however I like to think that the team here have been visible , the public have been listening to messages we have been generating and together we have made a difference . We have made some really significant arrests of late concerning those criminals involved in burglary offences , drug related offences as well as working hard with partners to deal with anti Social Behaviour in the borough .
In the new year I will be intensifying my efforts to promote neighbourhood link , ive fallen short of my ambitious 10,000 members in Charnwood however I will get there . Please speak to neighbours and friends in Charnwood , it would be great if you could spread the word about this facility which we will be using ever more frequently moving into next year.
Charnwood Watch update - we managed to secure funding for Charnwood Watch , there were a few delays in respect of signs and related items however Im confident that this will launch in January 2020 . I have designated PCSO Lisa McNeill to the project as well as Sgt Chris Wharton , im looking forward to seeing how this watch scheme spreads across the borough . As I have said before , this isn't meant to encroach on existing NW schemes which have been running for years locally , I hope we can work along side each other and share crime prevention info on this forum . Clearly this is why im keen to sign as many people up as possible so the crime prevention messages reach far and wide.
I don't know why the NL system asks members to rate messages , I don't wish to be rude however I may place a full stop in the wrong place which clearly infuriates some .
Also please don't use NL to report crime , 101,999 or online please.

Finally , please have a safe and peaceful evening and I hope 2020 is everything you wish for it to be.
