Current local priorities:

We have seen an increase of crime around theft from motor vehicles this month including theft of motor vehicle from a driveway in Tixover and a concern around thefts of vehicle parts from land rover defenders that we are looking into. We have also had a theft of heating oil (this appears to be an isolated incident at this time).

I would like to say another big thank you for continuing to observe the Covid-19 regulations, thankfully we continue to have very few breaches compared to some areas around the force area. We have looking into visitors travelling to the beauty spots around Rutland including Ketton Park and are visiting these sites and advising and checking distances travelled and we will issue Covid-19 tickets where breaches are found.

The joint Rutland North and Rutland South priority will remain as Rural Crime in relation to Burglaries, car crime and theft from farms. We like to remind you the usual MO is entry via forcing rear garden doors or windows as these areas are isolated and out of sight. Please make sure all doors are locked whether you’re in or not, windows are locked and secure and look at your security measures on any lockups, garages, sheds or outbuilding. If you can make it difficult for anyone to get into the rear garden even better as this is the preferred point of entry for burglars. Preferred items for them to steal is Jewelry and cash so please keep these safe.

As for vehicle crime, please continue to remove all property – remember ’if you leave it on show it will go’. Look to park your vehicle in a well-lit area, look to manoeuvre your van to make it difficult to open any side or rear doors. Please remember when you park up the perpetrators could be watching you, so remove your valuables out of site prior to arrival.

We continue to run a vehicle enforcement campaign throughout Rutland for speed and anti-social driving/riding and have been out in villages and towns with the speed laser gun and have reported a number of drivers.

Our current operations are op vitality for rural crime with extra officers on patrol and Op Vulpine for proactive covid-19 breaches and crime.

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 either 999 or 101.

Parish Meeting: If any parishes would like the beat team to join in any virtual monthly meeting you are holding please let me know.

Our next beat surgery.  As soon as lockdown is finished we will update you.
