Recorded crime is down for the second year at Beaumont Leys.This mirrors the downward trend across the force for 2012/2013.
I want to take the opportunity to congratulate my staff and local partners who have worked extremely hard during the past year to maintain this downward spiral.Its is because of their hard work that crime has continued to fall.Sadly,its not all good news we have seen a slight increase in assaults but we will focussing on this area of business in an attempt to halt its upward trend.I am confident that next year we will have better news to report in this area.
However, i`m not complacent my staff and i will continue to work hard this year to reduce crime even further and deliver the challenging targets set by the Police and Crime Commissioner in his crime plan for Leicester,Leicestershire and Rutland.
We have had a number of successes during the past year notably the recovery of a kilo of cocaine from a vehicle on the three beat and the closure of a property, who`s occupants were causing anti-social behaviour on the Stocking Farm estate. These successful incidents should not detract from the routine calls and enquiries that my staff deal with day in and day out which enables us to keep driving crime down.
Please,If you do see anything suspicious please do not hesitate to ring the Police on 101
Thanks for reading
Inspector Kev Morris
