The week started off with work continuing to respond to and investigating the serious assaults of the previous weekend. There was an excellent response by all those people involved. Thank you.
On Tuesday afternoon I visited East Midlands Specialist Operations Unit (EMSOU) Major Crime staff at Beaumont Leys and was briefed on some of the key lines of enquiry including some important family liaison work.
Well done Leicester City for being top of the league after a win on Saturday and thank you to Superintendent Ball and all those involved; it looked to be excellent from a policing perspective.

An incident with not only a happyish ending but one which reminds each and every one of us over what working for a Police Force or indeed the Emergency Services is all about. If you get time please have a read of the short blog regarding a missing 81-year-old man from the village of Manton over in Rutland, in fact not very far from Rutland Water itself.
The blog describes the experience of a son’s dealings with officers and staff from Leicestershire Police and a number of other agencies drawn together from across the Region.
The man describes putting out a frantic tweet and Facebook post and even getting replies from Alison Moyet and Caroline Flack! There is a real sense of pride in reading the blog. The missing man was found poorly but alive some miles away and the son expresses his thanks to force personnel. I know that every day sterling efforts are made by force personnel and please accept my thanks and those of the public.
