... Comments

Listed below are the priorities you told us about three
months ago and how we tackled them:
You told us...
Thefts from person (purse dipping) in Harborough town
centre, key times 1pm - 5pm, Monday to Saturday;
We responded...
We have been focusing on those individuals who target
elderly and vulnerable victims of crime by stealing their
purses. In the past three months we have reduced the
number of victims by 75 per cent compared to the three
previous months. We will continue to run plain clothed
operations and visible reassurance operations in the
town centre.
You told us...
The illegal possession and supply of drugs witihn the
Southern estate in Market Harborough and litter
associated with its use. Targetted operations at hot-spot
locations, key times 2pm - 10pm.
We responded...
We have been targeting people who our intelligence
suggests both misuse and perpetuate drugs offences in
the area. We have executed a number of premises
warrants and run a number of plain clothed operations
to target drugs misuse. We have had a number of
successes in the town centre.
