Rutland North & South – The joint Rutland North and Rutland South priority remains as Rural Crime in relation to Burglaries, car crime and theft. We have had a recent spike in Theft from vehicles in isolated beauty spots where property has been taken along with a spike in church lead theft. We are currently working with Neighbouring Police Forces to identify the suspects and ask that local residents do not leave any valuables in their vehicles. In relation to the church lead thefts we are asking local residents to look out for suspicious persons/ vehicles from dusk onwards. We continue to utilise the ANPR camera in Rutland to identify vehicles travelling through the County either with no driving documents or linked to crime. We will continue to work closely with the local residents and will alert you as soon as crime is reported and ask that if anything suspicious is seen to report through 101.
Uppingham - Last month, you told us about a rise in anti-social behaviour in Uppingham. We have increased patrols in hot spot areas and targetted the ring leaders of the group. We have worked with partner agencies to help identify those involved and disrupt further criminal behaviour. We will continue to work with partner agencies to find diversionary opportunities to prevent this from happening in the future.
