Through consultation we continue to see that the three main priorities that Rutland North residents are concerned about are Rural Crime, Speeding and Fraud.  This month we have conducted regular patrols linking in with our rural residents and have completed an Op Galileo day which looks specifically at Hare Coursing.  We have conducted speed checks and enforcement on the beat and have targeted HGV’s driving through Stretton and Clipsham as a short cut through a weight restricted road.  We have kept residents aware of scams identified within the community through social media and sharing Action Fraud newsletters.
