Oakham Beat Priorities – Rutland Officers will start a campaign to target road safety offences. This will be for the whole of Oakham & Barleythorpe. We will utilise social media and engagement opportunities to be better informed by the public about where the offences are being committed. We will utilise the Traffic Offence Reports (TOR’s) and issue these where applicable. We would like the public to join us on our social media pages and comment or tell us where there are issues. You can do this on Twitter @OakhamPolice #RoadSafety or Facebook RutlandPolice.
Rutland North & South Beat Priorities – Rutland Officers will tackle hare coursing around villages along the A47 corridor between Uppingham and Tixover as well as areas between Langham and the A1. This issue is ongoing and I would appeal to the community to report all sightings of hare coursing on 101 to assist police to tackle this concern.
Uppingham Beat Priorities – Rutland Officers will tackle and reduce anti-social behaviour of an evening on Tods Piece park, Uppingham. We have had reports of damage being caused to the skate park and new bike sheds, that rubbish is being left lying and not put in the bins, glass is being smashed and some threatening behaviour by youths on youths. This is a seasonal issue for Uppingham and seems to become more of an issue as the nights become darker and this area is a meeting point for young people. We are working with our partner agencies to monitor this situation. We are conducting regular high visibility patrols, interacting and engaging with youths at the park to point out the issues and offences and utilising the CCTV that covers the park to identify any offending behaviour.
