On Thursday 11th January we received a visit from a member of the Market Harborough Local Policing Team, Matthew Kiff.

Matthew was impressed by the size of the turnout (around 16 villagers attended) and listened to our concerns over the recent spate of shed/outhouse break-ins.

He was very frank regarding the level of resources that could dedicate to this type of crime and, realistically, such offences will only be followed up if their is a lead such as witnesses, photographs, forensic evidence etc.

He was able to outline services such as crime prevention audits which could provide advice in how to increase the security of properties. Also, the importance of reporting crime was emphasised. On top of the 999 calls for real emergencies and the 101 number for less critical matters (and he was honest about the delays in answering 101 calls) there is also the facility to report crimes on-line.

Finally, if anybody wants to contact Matthew direct, he has given his email address as follows:
