We are continuing to see Theft from vehicles as an issue for Rutland North and these are all in isolated locations generally where vehicles have been left for the occupants to go off walking. I would continue to urge everyone not to leave any valuables in your vehicles and not to leave anything on display. We are working with several other Police Forces to identify suspect(s). I would also ask for anyone to call in anything suspicious seen either through 999 if it is a crime happening, 101 or through our online reporting

As we approach the dark nights and with the clocks now changed I would also ask residents to ensure that all their gardening tools and equipment are locked away. Crime statistics show a trend of theft from sheds and outbuildings during the next few months and so ask that everyone be vigilant to try and prevent this from happening. I am always happy to offer Property Marking events in your villages to allow local residents to mark their property and if you are interesting in this please come back to me

Our current Problem Managed Profiles remain for Rutland North and Rutland South beats as Theft from Vehicles and Rural Crime to include Hare Coursing. I am pleased to say that Hare Coursing reports have dramatically reduced from last year and thank the local community for their support in calling in any incidents and the local farmers through the WhatsApp group messaging. We are however noticing a rise in Burglaries in Rutland and surrounding areas and will be conducting strategic patrols utilising the ANPR camera in our vehicle to identify and disrupt crime.
