Burglary update

Afternoon all.

As a bit of an update – year to date we have had 10 reported dwelling breaks (house burglaries) on this area. 2 of those have resulted in identified suspects who have been dealt with.

To put that into context, we cover Groby, Ratby and Markfield across to Twycross, Higham on the Hill and Fenny Drayton bordering Warwickshire and everything in between including Desford, Newbold Verdon and Barlestone. 5 villages.

We would like to encourage residents to invest in quality doorbell cameras. They are a huge asset and help us to identify key times of offences – they really narrow down the ‘overnight’ time frame.

In order to effectively address the issues that matter to you – we need to know where you feel that we are needed the most. Anti Social Behaviour? Crime patterns? Parking issues?

Previously – we received a lot of feedback around speeding. We are aware that it’s an issue across the entire area. We are often very short term solutions here in relation to a longer term problem, but we work with the safer roads team to enforce.
