NameRankBio
Dave Gott Sgt

I have been with Leicestershire Police for almost 18 years and during that time I have worked in a number of different roles. I have an in-depth investigative background working as a detective and then detective Sergeant since 2006. I am extremely proud to be putting the uniform back on to work together with the community and partners to prevent crime and protect the vulnerable. Having worked most of my career in the east of Leicester and the eastern county I feel I know the area, but really want to personally connect to the community. Being based at the heart of the Belgrave in the Neighbourhood Centre, covering the Ward as the Sergeant I feel I will achieve this.

Pete Colgate Sgt

I have been working for Leicestershire Police for the past 14 years in a number of roles primarily in the Loughborough and Charnwoo0d areas prior to working as a response Sergeant covering Hinckley & Blaby.

I come to the East Leicester Neighbourhood Policing Area in October 2018 and am keen to develop relationships within the community, whilst addressing any concerns that you may have. If you see me out and about, please feel free to come and speak with me.

Andy Salmon PC

I have worked for Leicestershire Police since 2006. I originally trained as a Police community Support Officer (PCSO) and was one of the officers working with the Hinckley neighbourhood team. I then trained as a Police Officer and have spent the last few years as a response officer.

I have recently moved from being a ‘Response’ officer and am looking forward to the challenges of working as a Safer Neighbourhood Officer. I look forward to addressing the issues that matter to residents in the area and tackling criminality.

I look forward to meeting you all.

Russell Kirby PCSO

I joined Leicestershire Police as a Police Community Support Officer in 2015 where I was stationed at St Matthews estate Leicester.

I started in company with PCSO Whitehead and I am now based at the Belgrave office which is on the Belgrave beat.

My role is to offer reassurance to members of the community, complete high visibility foot and cycle patrols and to tackle antisocial behaviour in the neighbourhood.

If you see me on the beat come and say hello, look forward to speaking to you.

The current Belgrave North priority is to reduce instances on robberies and anti social behaviour on Rushey Fields. A review has been carried out prior to the implementation of the priority and follow up reviews will be carried out to assess the level of the problem. This will include consultation with local residents and reviews of reported incidents. With targeted patrols, positive action against identified suspects and closely working with residents, we will make every attempt to significantly reduce instances of crime and ASB. We would like both the team and the community to witness a noticeable difference within a period of 3 months.

The Neighbourhood Team have conducted patrols in the area at the key times, these were highlighted by the community during consultation and engagement. At this time there has been a reduction in reports of Drugs and anti social behaviour at the location.

We responded by completing more than twenty five specific patrols of the identified area and engaging with any young people that were encountered. A small number of young people have been searched for drugs when suspicion arose but nothing was found. A gate has now been erected preventing access from Gipsy Lane into Sutton Place which appears to have had a positive impact on the problems previously suffered by residents. During the last month there have been no reports of anti-social behaviour and feedback from residents has been positive. We have noticed that some evidence of alcohol consumption is still present in the alleyways and will continue to target this over the coming months.

On six occasions street drinkers were encountered and advised accordingly about the impact their presence had on residents and other users of the garden area. A small number of people have been searched for drugs when the circumstances were appropriate however nothing has been found. We have established contact with the developer responsible for the renovation of Belgrave House to improve the security of the site both now and when it is complete. We are working with our partners at Leicester City Council to assess the possibility of improving the lighting in the area. We will continue to pay attention to the area and support the Neighbourhood Watch scheme over the coming months.

To continue to tackle street drinking and vagrancy by young people in Lexham Street and Shaftsbury Avenue between 4pm and midnight on a daily basis.

By paying significant attention to the area and initially identifying a small group of young people who were congregating there. These young people were spoken to and the consequences of their collective presence explained, along with some advice on where they could spend their time more productively. PCSO Vinod Modi has worked closely with our colleagues at Leicester City Council and arranged for the installation of alleygates at three prime locations to protect the interests of the neighbouring residents. These are to be installed imminently, reducing the opportunities for young people to gather out of public view. We have liaised with the Leicester Anti Social Behaviour Unit's street-based team who have also completed patrols in the area to engage with more â??hard to reach groupsâ??. Recent patrols have shown a dramatic reduction in the number of young people encountered. This area will continue to receive attention during our normal patrols.

To deal with street drinking and littering by local young people in Sutton Place and the adjoining alleyways to Watson Road and Gipsy Lane between 6pm and midnight daily.

By completing targeted patrols of the identified alleyways. This did provide an almost immediate improvement to those alleyways but unfortunately appears to have displaced the problem to other similar locations within the same estate. Alleygates are to be installed to provide a long term solution to the problems in Sutton Place. We will continue to work with our colleagues at Affinity-Sutton Housing and Leicester City Council's Street Wardens to tackle these ongoing issues in all of the alleyways within the Sutton estate.

To tackle street drinking and vagrancy by young people in Lexham Steet and Shaftsbury Avenue between 4pm and midnight on a daily basis.

We responded with targeted patrols of the area by Police Officers and Community Support Officers. No arrests have been made but officers have engaged with several young people and they have been encouraged to become involved in organised activities available to them. Similarly the Leicester Anti-Social Behaviour Street Based Team has engaged with the young people providing them with an alternative to the police when discussing their reasons for being in the area and sign-posting them to more meaningful use of their time. Work has been completed with Leicester City Council with a view to improving environmental problems with the installation of alley gates and this work is ongoing. Recent patrols have shown a reduction in the number of young people gathering; however consultation with residents suggests that problems are still occurring. For this reason we will continue to proactively patrol the area over the coming months.
