Good Week, Who's About? Basic Crime Prevention And Tell US What You Think


Hello Resident,

You may have noticed the emails you receive from us appear in your email box from alert@neighbourhoodalert.co.uk  as before they showed as from Neighbourhood Alert. This is due to the switchover and upgrade on our system. 

If you have the chance to rate this message, please do so at the bottom of the email as I would just like to check you are getting the messages ok following the update. You can also REPLY if you have any feedback on the messages I send. Any constructive criticism or ideas would be really appreciated as to what you would like to see more or less of in the messages. If you are having any issues please email me Darren.stretton@leics.police.uk

Crime figures have been very good over recent days in Burbage (touch wood). No reports of burglary, thefts or vehicle related crime.

This has given us an opportunity to complete some extra patrols and crime prevention work. I have visited locations such as Herald Way and the surrounding area. We spoke to several residents which was great, and had some really positive conversations meeting some lovely people and discussing local concerns. 

I have also completed patrols around Sketchley Road. We have tried to support with parking issues in the area following complaints, by speaking to residents. We appreciate parking is difficult but we ask that drivers ensure enough room is left for mobility scooters and pushchairs. Not all parking complaints can be dealt with by the Police so I will be putting together a message over the coming week that will help sign post you to the correct reporting platforms. 

Whilst completing patrols in Burbage, it was concerning to see the number of vehicles with windows open. Rucksacks, handbags, clothing and other items left in the vehicle which could have been easily taken. Again, we appreciate the weather is hot and you may want to leave the window open but please consider the security of your vehicle and personal items. It’s fortunate it was only me looking for what was on display. Door knocks were completed to notify the owners who were thankful for the advice.  I remember several years ago when lots of vehicles were targeted along Brookside, Canberra Way and Forryan Road. Items taken included wellington boots, coats, bags, children's school bags and sun glasses. Don’t wait on it to happen to you and don’t let these people make a few pounds out of that type of behaviour. 

Please continue just to be mindful, support neighbours, friends and family in reducing crime. 

We form our priorities based on feedback received from our survey responses. This helps identify what matters to the residents of Burbage, where the concerns are and when they are happening.  You can complete surveys using the below links to have your say.
