Rutland North Beat Report July 2020.

Criminal Damage – Greetham, Whissendine, 2 x A1

Assault –  2 x Cottesmore.

Public Order – Ryhall.

Theft from Vehicle – Cottesmore, Egleton, Whitwell. A1.

Theft – Hambeton, Langham.

On 19th July there was also a Rave reported in Pickworth and from this the following crime was recorded: –

Criminal damage x 2

Assault x 4

Public Order x 4

A Rave was reported to police in the early hours of the morning and this was tacked robustly sending officers onto the site and these officers were able to seize the equipment which closed the Rave and disbanded the people gathering.  There were several criminal offences linked to the incident and the assaults recorded were to police officers on the scene with suspects being arrested at the location.

The current Priorities for Rutland North beat continue to look at Theft from motor vehicles which we have noted there were 4 reported this month but 2 of these offences were theft of number plates.  I would ask all residents to consider carefully where they park their vehicles and please ensure that all valuables are taken out of the vehicle especially when parked in isolated beauty spots in the county.

There has also been an increase in number of reports of motorbikes being driven in the County at speed and this is something that we are tackling.  We are currently conducting speed checks and high visibility patrols in the locations that have been reported and have utilised the Force Traffic Motorbike dept who have been out assisting both Rutland North and Rutland South beats to engage and educate the riders.  We are also using the Speed Camera vans and they will be strategically located to deal with any of the speeding issues reported.

If you have any issues or concerns and would like to speak to the Beat team you can contact me through either calling 101 or emailing me or

Many thanks and be safe
