To address priority 1 I have received support from Neighbourhood Priority Officers (NPO’s). The main function of this team is to attend and respond to grade 1 (emergency 15 minute response) and grade 2 (priority 60 minute response) incidents and also manage their own crime investigations that have been allocated to them. The response area covers the Melton Borough and Rutland. During times they are not carrying out the activity mentioned above they support the beat teams across Melton and Rutland with their priorities, which there are 9 beat areas with up to 3 priorities each. The following activity has taken place:
02/02 Traffic Calming Colston Lane, Harby 17:30-18:00 02/02 15:30-17:00 NPO’s completed Weight limit enforcement between Harby & WOTW, 1 traffic offence report issued in Harby to a flat bed loader. 13/02 Weight restriction monitoring in Harby 16:10-16:35 no HGV’s 17/02 Weight Restriction Monitoring in Harby 15:40-16:00 – 3 HGV’s
There have been reports that motorcyclists have been out in the Buckminster area the last 2 weekends not obeying the speed limits and possibly in breach of current covid regulations. I plan to spend some time here at the weekends speed monitoring and will also ask for support from NPO’s.

We know the vast majority are sticking to the current Covid regulations and we thank you for that. The road map has been set out, please keep to the current guidelines and hopefully we will soon see each step come to fruition.
