Current local priorities:
To tackle theft from motor vehicles over the summer period, around the perimeter of Rutland Water and surrounding villages. As the weather improves we have an influx of vehicles into the county especially around Rutland water where drivers either leave their vehicle’s insecure, property on display or are seen by thief’s moving property from the cockpit into the boot area where their vehicles are then broken into.
