Operation Silence

Leicestershire Police Operation Silence

Dear Rutland resident.

We often receive communication from those in rural communities asking us to join various WhatsApp groups.

Our rural team is responsible for the entire of Leicestershire and Rutland which makes it incredibly difficult for us to be part of all of the various groups across such a huge area.
In order to try and improve our communication with those who live and work in the rural areas of Leicestershire and Rutland, we have set up Operation Silence.

The idea is to have one or 2 people from the various WhatsApp groups to act as a point of contact with the Police. They would be responsible for encouraging group members to report things to police as appropriate (999/101 or online) as well as regularly speaking to the Rural Policing Team face to face and on the phone / Skype etc and passing messages back to the community.

Our focus is on improving confidence and communication to as many people as we can in the rural and farming community.

We welcome contact from NFU groups, Young Farmers, current local and village groups or equestrian WhatsApp groups. Anything at all to benefit with more eyes and ears in rural communities.

If you are part of a communication group and want to learn more please email us and title your please email us and title your email Operation Silence:

Kind Regards

It is vital that I set a budget that will give Leicestershire Police the resources they need to implement the Police and Crime Plan which was written in consultation with you, the public. I want to ensure that the residents of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland are listened to and those matters which are considered important to you are reflected in the way we police in the future.

NeighbourHood Watch Newsletter – Jan 2022

Rwanda Happy New Year, and welcome to our first newsletter of 2022 for Neighbourhood Watch supporters across England and Wales!

This year, we are thrilled to be celebrating 40 years since the first Neighbourhood Watch group was formed in the UK in Cheshire in 1982. To kick-start our celebrations, we have proudly launched a special-edition 40th anniversary logo, which you can choose to use from now and throughout 2022 as you wish. We will be sharing more ways to celebrate our special anniversary throughout the year – for now, save the date for NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH WEEK 2022 from 30th May – 5th June. You may notice this falls on the same weekend as the Queens Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend and The Big Lunch – which presents a fantastic opportunity to host a street party and connect with your neighbours.

To download our anniversary logo, find top tips on how to organise a street party, or see how you can play your part in tackling terrorism, read our newsletter here.
