Over the last month, the station has been visited by Chief Constable Simon Cole and our Police and Crime Commissioner, Sir Clive Loader. Mr Cole was pleased to see the hard work going on in relation to tackling anti-social behaviour and targeting criminals. There are a few areas of focus around the borough at the moment, two in particular being the community centre in Markfield and the Northern Perimeter Road in Hinckley. Both of these areas are subject to extra policing activity, so it was good to see the work recognised by a senior figure.
Sir Clive met some of the staff from the multiagency antisocial behaviour team and later went out on foot patrol with PC Julia Brown.
As the nights begin to draw in, we are heading closer to the clocks going back. Over the years, we often see an increase in house burglaries around this time so I want to reiterate a few really important messages to make sure you don’t suffer a break in. Use lights on timers, keep your doors and windows secure, even when you are in, and report any suspicious activity in your area to the police. Dial 101 to pass us any general concerns, but always use 999 if you think a crime may be about to happen.

A significant element of our work at Hinckley is to tackle the issues that are important to the community. We regularly engage and consult with large part of the community as well as statutory and voluntary partners. I would therefore be grateful if you could take a few minutes to complete our on-line questionnaire and tell us about issues that you feel need tackling. It can be found by visiting this link.
We use the results from this survey to assist us with setting our neighbourhood priorities.
