Current local priorities:
The issues identified are includes Burglaries, hare coursing, criminal damage to land and crops, and theft. This is an issue for the rural community and we will look to conduct regular targeted patrols and joint cross border work with Lincolnshire police around this issue and through Op Galileo.
We have continued to tackle this issue with targeted High visibility patrols on both Rutland North and Rutland South beats this month. With the use of the new ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) camera, which is being used for Op Galileo and to target the increase in Burglaries on the South of Rutland we have seized several vehicles this month. We are working closely with the local residents and farmers who continue to help our efforts and offer support to this issue and ask that if anything suspicious is seen to report through 101
