Current local priorities:
The issues identified are Burglaries, car crime, hare coursing including 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 (hare coursing) and op pioneer (vehicle crime).
We will continue to tackle this issue with targeted High visibility patrols on both Rutland North and Rutland South beats. With the use of the new ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) camera, which is being used for Op Galileo and to target the increase in Burglaries on the South of Rutland. We have arrested and charged a person in connection to these breaks. We are working closely with the local residents and farmers who continue to help our efforts and offer support to this issue and ask that if anything suspicious is seen to report through 101
Our next beat surgery. Will be held on Tuesday 19th December 2017 at Ketton Library and community hub between 10-11am.
- If you would like your local beat team to join you for a surgery/coffee morning to discuss any merging issues or maybe a vulnerable person you feel could do with some extra support or help - let Di or I know and we will try and fit you in. We are also happy to arrange any property marking events for any village wanting reassurance and advice.
