Current local priorities:
In general, we have seen a reduction in crime and this will no doubt be down to Covid-19 and the majority of people at home and on lockdown. Any vehicles seen moving late to early hours will always be stopped, which criminals are aware of which has led to some good stop checks. We have had a few business breaks close to dusk where we are now focusing our patrols. We have completed a number of stop checks and have issued tickets for breaching the government guidelines around movement for Covid-19 where necessary.
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 Jewellery 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.
We continue to run a vehicle enforcement campaign throughout Rutland for speed and anti-social driving and have been out in villages and towns with the speed laser gun.
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.
Our next beat surgery. As soon as lockdown is finished we will update you.
