You will be aware that Leicestershire Police along with two local councils has been criticised at an inquest into the deaths of Fiona Pilkington and Frankie Hardwick. We have accepted that we didn’t do as well as we should have in this case.
Since then, we have made a number of changes to the way we work, some as a direct result of what happened, some due to other reasons and our commitment towards providing a better service to communities.
We now attend every incident where the victim wishes us to attend.
Officers can now – and do – look at the previous incidents and crimes for a given address when they attend a new call.
We have trained 2,000 officers and staff in Protecting Vulnerable People.
We have improved the way we share information with other agencies – in some cases council staff work from police stations, in others police officers work from council offices, and we meet out local authority colleagues regularly to discuss individual cases.
And we now have more options in dealing with those who commit anti-social behaviour – including restorative justice.
We will investigate cases of anti-social behaviour which are reported to us, and with local authorities and other agencies we will take proportionate and appropriate measures against those involved. We are committed to delivering the highest levels of service to everyone we serve.
If you have any information that may help the police in any of their enquiries please contact Leicestershire Police on 0116 22 22 222 or alternatively if you wish to remain anonymous you can call Crimestoppers free on 0800 555 111, or contact your neighbourhood officers via the police website www.leics.police.uk
