22nd – Luffenham Road, Lyndon – Construction site, two plant machinery stolen overnight, a Bobcat B260 Tailswing excavator and a 1 ton high lift dumper. Container also broken into.

As part of our ongoing drive to reduce demand did you know that you can report a “NONE EMERGENCY” crime and find lots of useful information on our new improved web site. www.leics.police.uk

Current local priorities:  

I would like to say another big thank you for continuing to observe the Covid-19 regulations, thankfully we continue to have very few breaches compared to some areas around the force area. We have looking into visitors travelling to the beauty spots around Rutland including Ketton Park and are visiting these sites and advising and checking distances travelled and we will issue Covid-19 tickets where breaches are found.

The joint Rutland North and Rutland South priority will remain as Rural Crime in relation to Burglaries, car crime and theft from farms. We like to remind you the usual MO is entry via forcing rear garden doors or windows as these areas are isolated and out of sight. Please make sure all doors are locked whether you’re in or not, windows are locked and secure and look at your security measures on any lockups, garages, sheds or outbuilding. If you can make it difficult for anyone to get into the rear garden even better as this is the preferred point of entry for burglars. Preferred items for them to steal is Jewellery and cash so please keep these safe.

As for vehicle crime, please continue to remove all property – remember ’if you leave it on show it will go’. Look to park your vehicle in a well-lit area, look to manoeuvre your van to make it difficult to open any side or rear doors. Please remember when you park up the perpetrators could be watching you, so remove your valuables out of site prior to arrival. 

We continue to run a vehicle enforcement campaign throughout Rutland for speed and anti-social driving/riding and have been out in villages and towns with the speed laser gun and have reported a number of drivers. We have completed an analysis of accidents and casualties in Rutland over the last 5 years which shows a continuing reduction year on. Please see the table below;

Neighbourhood Watch Launches Protect Your Car Campaign
Car crime is a real problem in the UK. Alarmingly, one car is stolen every ten minutes.(1) With Covid-19 and the recent lockdowns, many people aren’t driving or checking on their cars as much as they used to. At Neighbourhood Watch, we need your help to remind car owners to remain vigilant about where and how they park their cars, in order to keep them safe.

John Hayward-Cripps, CEO of Neighbourhood Watch Network, says

“Most car crimes happen because cars are left unlocked.  There is a misconception that some cars are auto-locking and lock themselves if left unattended after a period of time. This isn’t always correct.  Another misconception is that your car is too old and no one will bother stealing it.  This is also incorrect – both new and old cars are at risk. Having a car stolen or broken into is more than simply a hassle, it can impact on people’s livelihoods.  The good news is that there are simple steps everyone can take to help reduce the risk to their car. With only a 46% recovery rate3 we’re reminding everyone to leave your car lockedlit and empty.”

Remember – Leave your car:

  1. Locked (2)   A simple mistake that can prove calamitous: 44% of cars are broken into via an unlocked door. Leave your car locked video.
  2. Lit (2) 80% of car crime occurs during the evening or at night. Parking near street lamps or in a busy area can deter thieves. Leave your car lit video.
  3. Empty (or with no items on show)  Owners often forget that personal belongings within the car are at as much risk of being stolen as the car itself.   Leave your car empty video.

John Hayward-Cripps continues

“Car thieves are opportunists. Leaving items on a car seat or forgetting to lock your car can act as an invitation for crime. We want to instil the habit of double-checking where and how you’ve parked with our three simple steps: leave it lockedlit and empty.  As a local charity with a trusted voice in the community, we’re asking everyone to proactively support their neighbours and friends by sharing our three steps with three others. By spreading the word, we’re confident we can crack down on car crime which can be deeply distressing and debilitating for its victims.”

Warning Issued Following Reports of Telephone Scam Claiming To Be Leics Police

The force is urging people across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland to remain vigilant and be wary of a telephone scam currently in operation.

Six reports have been received in the past week in which a total of £18,000 has been erroneously handed over.

From enquiries carried out so far, many calls follow the below scenario:

A cold call is made to a victim by someone claiming to work with Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) or national insurance and that information is required to be passed on to the police. The call is then ended

The victim then receives a further call which is shown to be from 0116 222 2222 – which is the main switchboard number for Leicestershire Police. Please note this number is ‘spoofed’ – ie faked. Numbers shown on a caller ID are NOT confirmation or verification of where a call is coming from – the phone is merely displaying what it has been told to say.

A person claiming to be a police officer then speaks to the victim, stating the victim’s details are being used to open a large number of bank accounts. Threatening language may be use and victims have been told they are in trouble and could be arrested or taken to court
The caller then provides a bank account number and asks the victim to transfer money over for ‘safe keeping’

Nicole McIntyre, from the force’s Economic Crime Unit, said: “We will never contact you and ask you to transfer funds.

“Should you receive a call from the force phone number where someone asks you to send money, please hang up immediately.

“You can contact us on 101 should you need to clarify the information. Always leave more than ten seconds between hanging up and dialling out to ensure the original call has terminated.

“Please pass this information on to any friends of family members who may not be aware of this scam or who could be particularly vulnerable to the way these criminals operate. If we work together, we can try and prevent more people from falling victim.”

If you are a victim of this scam – or know someone who has been – please contact us on 101. You can also report incidents online by visiting
https://www.leics.police.uk/ro/report/ocr/af/how-to-report-a-crime/

You should also contact your bank immediately.

You can also make a report to Action Fraud by visiting www.actionfraud.police.uk
