Rutland North – We have conducted High Visibility patrols on the quarry and around the location to try and identify bike users, however I have still not witnessed any bikers at the location. We have had several calls to Leicestershire police with regards to these issues and have updated the callers with our responses. Stamford police team has had several reports about motor bikes in the quarry and we continue to work with them to identify the users to ensure they do not return. This month we are hoping to conduct a joint operation with the Cross Border Team and will be using the Police off-road bike to try and identify bike users and educate them about the issues reported. PC Laurie Appleton.
Rutland South – This month we have continued with our high visibility patrols around Rutland water and surrounding villages checking on vehicles and leaving advisory notes on those that have left property on display. We have again stopped checked any suspicious vehicles and have dealt with any offences found. In the last month, on 7th we had a theft of tools from a works van that was parked up on the owners driveway in Manton with unknown means of entry, also during the day on 15th July the rear window of a car was smashed that was parked up on the Road side off the A47 by Tixover with items stolen. We will continue with our patrols throughout the summer months and ask you remove any property to the boot area when out and when parking up at home take any valuables inside with you. If you see any suspicious activity in your area or when you’re out call 999 in an emergency if you see a crime is taking place and 101 for anything else. PC Pete Icke.
