Despite a number of arrests for this type of offence last week there are yet more committing these offences.  They are most likely to be detected by members of the public reporting suspicious behaviour to the Police, so if you see anyone, lying or bending down beside a parked vehicle, please report this immediately to Police by dialling 999.

Uppingham – theft, criminal damage, and graffiti, at various locations in and round Ayston Road and Orange Street, over the last week.  One adult male arrested by PC’s Icke and Appleton for 8 separate offences.  Excellent work.

We are still working on our beat priorities identified through consultation and surveys completed on Neighbourhood Link.  If you would like to be signed up to this please email me with the following details Full Name, House number/name, Post code and email address.  This is an email alert from the police and you can also include any concerns you have and the location of the concerns and I can complete your survey.

Currently Rutland North priorities are Speeding, Rural Crime and Fraud.  We continue to enforce speed in the Rutland North villages with the support of all Rutland officers and the speed camera van.  We have noticed a drop in reported Rural Crime and are working with partner agencies and our local farmers to tackle these issues.  We are linking in with Action Fraud utilising Twitter and Neighbourhood Link to alert our residents of current scams.  If you would like to follow us on Twitter we have now linked all Rutland beats into one account and so please follow us on @LP_Rutland
