Rising Crime in the Area

Recently I have heard some concerning stories about people who have fallen victim to criminals operating in the Lutterworth area.
Lets hope the increase in thefts and suspicious activity is not an inevitable  effect of police cuts both nationally and locally. Whilst there are deterrents and preventative measures in place such as ‘No Cold Calling Zones’ and CCTV, we as members of the public can help prevent crime by being vigilant and making sure we lock doors and windows.
It is also important to keep valuables out of sight when left in vehicles and report all suspicious goings on to Crimestoppers 0800 555 111 https://crimestoppers-uk.org/ or Leicestershire Police on 101.
Residents may also consider joining a neighbourhood watch scheme! For more information visit http://www.leicestershireneighbourhoodwatch.co.uk/LocalArea
