Rutland North/South – We have continued to see a reduction in hare coursing throughout Rutland over the last month. We will continue with Op Galileo days this month which is a joint operation with Lincolnshire police and utilising the ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) camera. The current Neighbourhood priority is to concentrate on Burglaries, car crime, and theft. We will look to conduct regular targeted patrols utilising the ANPR camera. This is also the time of year where we start seeing an increase in shed breaks so can I ask you check your security relocks and alarms on both sheds, garages and outbuildings. If your parish would like a property marking event to mark-up garden tools etc. let me know. 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.

Safer Rutland Partnership – The Safer Rutland Partnership is conducting its annual community consultation as part of its annual strategic assessment regarding crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour concerns within the county of Rutland and we would like you to complete this short questionnaire on the following link.

The information provided via this questionnaire allows the Safer Rutland Partnership to review the community concerns and make adjustments to its priorities, if required.

This information will also feed into plans for Leicestershire Police and the Police and Crime Commissioners objectives to ensure that Rutland remains a safe place to live, work and enjoy.

Thank you for your assistance.

The current Neighbourhood priority is still Rural crime and we have noted a massive drop in reports of Hare Coursing this month and so are now looking at concentrating to target travelling criminals in Rutland utilising the ANPR camera.


We have booked our next Beat surgery which is the Rural Crime breakfast between 9am to 11am on Thursday 22nd February at The Agricultural Society Show Ground, which is sponsored by Crime Stoppers and hope to see as many people to discuss rural issues and tackling rural crime.
