As you can see we are still being targeted for Burglary related crime including sheds, garages & stables, whereby power tools and gardening equipment are stolen. We are trying to target offenders, carrying out police patrols in the areas affected and liaising with neighbouring police forces.
We are urging residents to review their home security, especially their sheds and outbuildings.
Our current Problems solving plans are tackling burglary related crime in Ketton, hare coursing along the A47 corridor villages between Uppingham and Barrowden and tackling the increased threat of lead thefts from church roofs. There have been 7 thefts in the Melton Mowbray area this year.
We have visited all Rutland Churches and carried out risk assessments on their security to reduce the threat.
Last month I mentioned the launch of the Leicestershire and Rutland Rural Watch, which tackles rural crime. Please visit its website, via the below link? It contains rural crime updates and a whole host of crime prevention advice.
