Local Police Update

Good Evening,
I hope you are all well and keeping safe,
Thankyou to those who have adhered to the government guidelines in these strange times and continue to abide by the rules. Those who have not adhered to them have been dealt with in an appropriate manner; a few resulting in fines, which we will continue to issue where needed.
As another national lockdown hits, we appreciate that everybody is facing many challenges during this global pandemic, especially with not being able to see families and friends. However; as we all continue to do our bit and follow the guidelines given, we are doing as best we can to fight this virus.
In terms of crime over the last week we have had two reported attempted burglaries in the Thurmaston area one in the area of LONSDALE ROAD in the early hours on the 5th of January and the other in the area of SILVERDALE DRIVE on the 7th there are ongoing enquiries in relation to these offences.
There has been a slight increase across the Charnwood East area in vehicle crime namely theft from motor vehicle including theft of number plates and catalytic convertors.
The op for the car meet is proving successful. A number of Traffic Offence Reports have been issued. After keeping in touch with the staff at McDonalds, they have recently updated us that there are less cars meeting on a Tuesday evening. High visibility patrols are clearly working so will continue. As always, please continue to report any issues to us via 101 so we can deal accordingly.
Speed Checks
Speeding has also been raised as a concern by local residents at several locations across Charnwood East, due to this feedback; we will be carrying out further speed checks this month. We have dates and locations planned out to try and tackle these issues.
Please remain vigilant as always and report anything suspicious to us on 101.
Stay safe,
PCSO 6868 Fiona Lacey
