Oakham & Barleythorpe - Recently we have been receiving reports of people driving around local car parks in an anti-social manner. I issued a Section 59 ticket to a rider of a motorbike who was caught in Oakham recently. We haven't had any other complaints with specific details so this plan is going to close. The Neighbourhood team will continue to monitor the various car parks and areas of concern relating to nuisance vehicles. PC Lloyd.
Rutland North – The issues identified are Hare coursing, criminal damage to land and crops, and theft. This is an issue for the rural community and we will look to conduct regular targeted patrols and joint cross border work with Lincolnshire police around this issue and through Op Galileo.
Rutland South - The issues identified are Hare coursing, criminal damage to land and crops, and theft. This is an issue for the rural community and we will look to conduct regular targeted patrols and joint cross border work with Lincolnshire police around this issue and through Op Galileo.
Uppingham – With regards to the occurrences of shop lifting in Uppingham, so far the local beat team have established intelligence links with officers from Corby to attempt to identify the persons responsible for committing the recent offences. Two persons have been arrested and a further three suspects have been identified and will be actively sought in regards to the matter. The local team has also met with a retail crime partnership, with a view of pioneering a similar initiative in Uppingham and will work closely with the Uppingham Business Forum to try and establish this. The Eastern Counties neighbourhood pro-active team (NPT) have also been contacted and will be drafted in to help actively seek out offenders, and the beat team also seeks to collaboratively work with local businesses to promote crime prevention and help to deter, disrupt and prevent future offences. The beat team recently met with the Uppingham Business forum and presented on the crime reduction idea, which was well supported and work starts in earnest to get the plan off the ground. PC Josh Ace.
