I have been a Police Officer for over 14 years and have predominantly worked in the city in numerous role. My career started off at Belgrave Police Station as General Duty officer, responding 24/7 to crimes, concerns for welfare and processing prisoners. I then completed just under a year in CID which gave me a good insight in dealing with complex crimes, interviews and preparation of crime files. I then returned as a general duty officer for a short time before becoming a Neighbourhood Officer which gave me a huge experience in multi –agency working and helping members of public.

I started at Keyham Lane Police Station in July 2017 covering the Humberstone & Hamilton and Thurncourt ward. I have a team of experienced Police Officer's and Community Support Officer's. I look forward to working with them to ensure we deal what matter's to you and the area becomes a safer place to live, work and visit.

I have a pro-active attitude and will be targeting those that cause most harm to the wider community, so please provide me with information if you have any concerns or gut feelings and if relevant and necessary I will ensure proportionate action is taken to hold offenders accountable and the community safe.’

We have had increased reports of motorcycles being ridden in a dangerous manner in and around the parkland off Moulton Ave, Hamilton.

The bikes are being ridden mostly in the afternoons and evenings, causing concern and preventing people from using the park for ordinary activities.

Concerns have been raised about cars parking on the pavement on several roads around the Hamilton estate including Dalton Road and Thornborough Way. The residents group for Saxthorpe Road have also highlighted parking issues.
Most houses have allocated parking, but some residents choose to not use allocated spaces and instead park on the road and pavements.

Residents of these streets cannot walk along the pavement and have to step into the road to get round poorly parked cars causing obstructions on the road.

In addition to the 3 operations conducted, a larger scale enforcement day was jointly held with Leics Fire and Rescue Service to educate drivers in the area found driving with no seatbelt, excess speed or using a mobile phone. A number of drivers were stopped and received educational advice from LFRS.

To reduce incidents of anti-social and inconsiderate behaviour by large groups of youths acting in a disorderly manner, using threatening, abusive and intimidating behaviour, in the area of New Romney Crescent, Brocklesby Way and surrounding area, in the late afternoon and early evening.

resident, who has been a victim of anti-social behaviour, has been visited again by the neighbourhood policing team. He reported there had been no recent problems and nothing targeted at him, or his family. The warning letters issued and the increased patrols of the area seem to have had the desired effect. Although youths do still congregate on the green, their behaviour is not affecting residents.

There have been two reports of anti-social behaviour in the past 90 days on Brocklesby Way. These are from the same household and both relate to youths knocking on doors / windows and running away. Four females were seen to run off by the occupant, but these have not been identified. It is not known whether these females are part of the group that were responsible for much of the previous anti-social behaviour in the area.

There have been no reports of anti-social behaviour on New Romney Crescent in the past 90 days, although there was an incident of damage near to its junction with Scraptoft Lane. There have been no further reports on Renfrew, Moorfields or other neighbouring streets.

Although there are emerging anti-social behaviour problems on Netherhall Road the youths involved in this are not the same and the issues are not connected.

As there have been no recent problems and no further reports this PSP will be closed.

Issue dated: 01/06/2012

Action dated: 01/06/2012

To reduce incidents of rowdy, disorderly anti-social behaviour, causing criminal damage (by the use of graffiti) and theft from Sainsbury's store by groups of youths in the area of Sandhills Avenue, between 5pm and 11pm daily.

The problems in this area are sporadic and therefore it has been difficult to identify and deal with the youths causing the problems. Recent patrols by Special Constables have identified a small group of youths, who are regularly involved in anti-social behaviour across the beat, and on neighbouring beats, and a number of interventions have already been investigated. The Leicester Anti-Social Behaviour Unit (LASBU) has been notified regarding these youths and I understand that Insp. Riley and Insp. Knopp have been discussing this group due to them causing issues across the LPU boundaries. A joint approach to dealing with them is required, and a joint meeting is to be arranged between NHPT Sgts from CK/CN and housing to discuss joint strategy. Patrols in the area have continued by members of the beat team and generally no further problems have been identified.
PC Burnham has discussed the problems with the manager of the flats above the shops on Sandhills Road and he is considering putting security gates at the entrances to the flats. This would prevent the walkways being accessed and used by the youths.
PC Burnham has also been tasked with contacting the residents who were spoken to by the SPCs to gain further details of the problems.
Update: Sgt Thompson has closed this priority as there have been no further reported complaints.

Issue dated: 01/06/2012

Action dated: 01/06/2012

Update: A multi agency approach was attempted in relation to this priority, however due to lack of engagement from the parties the attempt failed. However it is believed that due to action and interventions by the police and LASBU, further problems were avoided. No further incidents of note.

Issue dated: 28/03/2012

Action dated: 15/06/2012

A large group of local youths loitering around area of New Romney Crescent, Renfrew Road and Flatholme road causing problems of anti-social behaviour by means of racial abuse, banging on windows, littering, shining laser pens into the faces of drivers of passing vehicles and entering the gardens of local residents without permission.

A number of incidents within a short period of time were reported to police, the first being racial abuse. A community consultation was carried out with residents from New Romney Crescent, Renfrew Road and Flatholem Road. A number of anti-social behaviour issues were reported. A victim who frequents the area due to their nature of work informed that a large number of residents are elderly and have said of their fear of the youths.
From descriptions given by victims and local knowledge of officers it has been determined that the target group are local youths.
Police action includes uniformed targeted patrols, an anti-social behaviour waymarker has been introduced to monitor and encourage police attendance, an incremental anti-social behaviour process has been started, e.g. identifying offenders, consideration of warning letters.
Update: Very few reports have been received regarding this priority, and a new operational order has been introduced to deal with anti-social behaviour, so this priority can be safely closed.

To address issues relating to anti-social behaviour and street drinking around the Netherhall Road shops between 6pm and 10pm daily.

We have increased patrols in this area and conducted targeted operations. We have liaised with partner agencies to improve monitoring and recording equipment in the area and decrease access to areas of concern.

To reduce incidents of Public Order in Humberstone Village by students waiting at the bus stop at 4pm, the end of the College day.

We have responded by increasing the number of patrols in the village at key times. At times of heightened tension there have been at least six officers patrolling the village on a daily basis. Patrols have also been conducted by City Council Street Wardens. A bus service direct from school has been arranged to reduce the need for pupils to walk into the village, CCTV has been implemented and any reports of criminal activity have been thoroughly investigated and the perpetrators identified.

Due to ongoing community concerns, this will be kept as a beat priority.

Issue dated: 01/02/2010

Action dated: 11/05/2010

To address issues relating to parking, and anti-social behaviour outside Kestrel Fields School at the start and finish of the school day.

To address this we have conducted highly visible patrols around the school at key times. Travel plans have been discussed with the school to reduce the number of vehicles attending and discussions have taken place with the Highways Agency regarding traffic calming and pedestrian crossings at the location. Where offences have been committed, and advice has not been appropriate, then enforcement action has been taken.

There are ongoing improvements with this priority but at this time they are not sufficient to consider this complete. Therefore this priority will be continued.

Issue dated: 01/02/2010

Action dated: 11/05/2010

Groups of youths aged 14 to 19 years, congregating in and around Main Street, Humberstone, drinking alcohol, smoking drugs and causing a general nuisance to local residents at any time of the day. Priority closed.

There have been no further complaints regarding this problem, although there have been reports about mini moto bikes being ridden around the area causing problems. Names of suspects are being investigated by the beat team.

Update: There have been no recently reported incidents at this location, and the group that were causing problems have all moved on or have been given banning letters by local businesses. The alleygate installation would be a long term solution to some of the problems and this is ongoing between PCSO 6123 Kerry Soffe and Shobhana Patel at the Community Safety team. Situation will be monitored in terms of future incidents, however this priority will now be closed.
