Oakham & Barleythorpe – We have continued with our Fatal4 ad-hoc operations throughout the Month of March and into April. High visibility speed checks have been conducted and Traffic Offence Reports have been issued for speeding and failing to wear seat belts. There will be further operations surrounding speeding and the use of mobile phones in April. Thank you, PC Joe Lloyd.
Rutland North – We have continued to work hard this month and have conducted targeted patrols on the North beat and after the noticeable increase in incidents reported last month have conducted 2 days of joint cross-border patrols with Lincolnshire police as part of Op Galileo and assisted by the local farmers. We ask that if you see any suspicious activity to call 101 to help us respond to these incidents. Thank you, PC Laurie Appleton.
Rutland South – Rutland officers are carrying out targeted patrols in areas previously identified as hare coursing hot spots in Rutland. This issue is on-going and I would appeal to the community to report all sightings of hare coursing on 101 to assist police to tackle this concern. Last month saw continued reports of hare coursing reported to Rutland Police in the areas along the A47 corridor from Tixover to Uppingham, Ketton and Market Overton and local police officers took part in 2 days of enforcement, working with a cross-border force. Several persons and vehicles were identified as being suspected of taking part in this illegal activity. Thank you, PC Pete Icke.
Uppingham – This month we have continued to conduct high visibility patrols along the main arterial routes and inner roads around Uppingham. We continue to hold enforcement days where we deal with driving offences especially the fatal 4, using mobile phones whilst driving (now 6 points and £200 fine), speeding, not wearing seat a belt and drink driving. Whilst on foot patrol we will continue to advise where we see bad parking, blocking pavements and driveways. Remember we can now seize vehicles for having no tax and members of the public are checking the DVLA website and reporting offending vehicles to us, so be aware and make sure your vehicle has the correct documentation to be on the road. We will continue with the initiative this month and look forward to seeing you out there and keeping you safe. Thank you, PC Joshua Ace.
