Police Officer Information for Uppingham

NameRankBio
Joshua Ace PC

I have been a Police Officer for over 8 years, beginning at Market Harborough, moving briefly to Loughborough and have covered Oadby and Wigston also. I joined the Uppingham Beat Team in April 2017, and am looking forward to the contrast in the work involved. My immediate previous role was held in Market Harborough where, as a Dedicated Neighbourhood Officer, I forged strong links with partner agencies and worked tirelessly to safeguard the vulnerable, reduce criminality, decrease anti-social behaviour and stop those causing harm in the community. My aim is to provide the local people of Uppingham an excellent quality of service in relation to local issues.

I look forward to meeting you when out and about on my beat.

Andy Wylie PCSO I became a PCSO in March 2005.

I have been stationed in Uppingham since October 2005 and I firmly believe that my role provides an approachable and consistent daily link between the local community and police.
Darren Richardson Sgt

I have worked with Leicestershire police since 2008. I have enjoyed a variety of different roles and challenges during my time including response policing and working within the investigation team. I am looking forward to the challenges that policing in Rutland will bring. I intend to work closely with communities and partner agencies to address the issues that are important to them.

Neighbourhood Priorities for Uppingham

IssueActionDates

There has been a rise in the number of reports of drug dealing/taking at licenced premises in Uppingham, and amongst youths hanging around in the street. You have told us this through messages on Facebook, Twitter, in person and telephone calls to police.

Issue dated: 29/01/2019

Action dated: 30/11/-0001

October and November saw a slight spike in dwelling burglaries; 4 in total and as such we have drafted a patrol strategy to combat the issue and have requested help from the entire Rutland staff to manage this. This issue appears to be concentrated towards the north of the beat, near the A47. This is likely due to the ease of access to the A47 and routes in and out of Uppingham. The burglaries appear to happening sometime in the late evenings and early hours of the following morning. Attacked properties tend to be unoccupied at the time of the offence, and doors are being attacked to force entry into the property. A door to door selling gang may be involved, so we urge residents to be on the look out for such person, and report any suspicious activity to us.

This will be our focus for December, especially given we are now in the run up to Christmas.

Burglaires have successfully fallen over the period targetting them. Priority closed

Issue dated: 05/12/2018

Action dated: 07/04/2019

Anti-Social Behaviour is an issue in Uppingham at the moment. You have told us that a group of young local youths have been causing problems in public spaces in Uppingham, including; throwing stones at house roofs, climbing on bus shelters, loitering along North Street East, causing a nuisance in Reeves Yard and noise issues along High Street East. Recent issues also include minor damage in the public toilets and to pot plants on Orange Street.

The last month has seen a drastic decrease in the number of reports of ASB in Uppingham. Whilst there is still a presence of youths on the streets, the associated calls of ASB and intimidation are no longer being made. We are delighted to report that the key ring leaders have been dealt with robustly and are awaiting a decision from the youth panel as to how they will be dealt with; youth conditional cautions and restorative measures have been requested. We will keep the Town Council abreast of the outcome of this. In order to help manage the issue, the beat team created what is called a Problem Management Profile and is viewed fortnightly by the area Inspector and Sergeants. This has helped us co-ordinate and document the work carried out, and ultimately helps us analyse what we have done and learn from the positives/negatives.

Issue dated: 03/10/2018

Action dated: 05/12/2018

The proceeding quarter has seen a rise in bilkings at the local petrol station, and reports from public around local vehicles being driven without the correct documentation has increased. Therefore we as a beat team will target vehicle related crime, and look to impact this by use of the Rutland ANPR camera with pro-active stops, and follow up information on defective vehicles (No tax/MOT/insurance) with reactive seizure of relevant cars.

Increased patrols and targetting of vehicles has seen a drastic drop in recorded offences.

Issue dated: 01/05/2018

Action dated: 05/06/2018

Hare coursing, criminal damage to land and crops, burglaries and theft are some of the issues Uppingham has faced in recent times. This is an issue for the rural community and we will look to conduct regular targeted patrols and joint cross border work with both Lincolnshire and Northamptonshire Police around these issues. As a beat team, we have created Op Hexagon to co-ordinate our attempts at reducing this issue and tackle those responsible for causing harm.

Utilisation of ANPR camera's have been succesful under Op Hexagon with a number of cars stopped and seized and intelligence gained. This priority is now suitable for closure.

Issue dated: 11/12/2017

Action dated: 04/02/2018

2017 has seen a stark rise in the number of shop lifting offences in Uppingham, compared to 2016. In fact, the first half of 2017 saw offences exceed the entire total in 2017 - plus an extra 20%. The offences are believed to be being committed by criminals who are not local to the area, rather from Northamptonshire, so there has been a gap in intelligence around identifying and locating those responsible. The local community have asked us to address this issue and help crack down on offenders.

This plan has seen a drastic reduction in offences being committed, with only one report of shop theft being made to Police in the last 6 weeks.

Issue dated: 16/11/2017

Action dated: 11/12/2017

To tackle anti-social behaviour in the skate park on Firth Park, Uppingham.

There has been a drastic decrease in reported ASB on the skate park since the intervention of the beat team and work with partner agencies. As such, this priority is closed as effective working has helped solve the issue.

Issue dated: 18/06/2017

Action dated: 29/08/2017

To tackle speeding along with other motoring offences along the main arterial routes through Uppingham. Speeding is always raised when speaking with the community, so we will continue to highlight the issue through social media and high visibility patrols.

Closed.

Issue dated: 22/01/2017

Action dated: 12/07/2017

To tackle and reduce anti social behaviour of an evening on Tods Piece park, Uppingham. We have had reports of damage being caused to the skate park and new bike sheds, that rubbish is being left lying and not put in the bins, glass is being smashed and some threatening behaviour by youths on youths. This is a seasonal issue for Uppingham and seems to become more of an issue as the nights become darker and this area is a meeting point for young people.

We have continued with high visibility patrols over the Christmas period and engaged positively with youths using the skate park. We have had no further issues or complaints and I feel we have been received well by the majority of youths who have appreciated what we have been trying to do – to make the park a safer and cleaner place to play. I will look to close this priority but we will continue with general patrols in and around the area.

Issue dated: 16/09/2016

Action dated: 22/01/2017

To tackle anti-social behaviour to the rear of St Peters and St Paul’s Church in Uppingham. Incidents of youths gathering and causing damage to the church property, smoking cannabis, drinking alcohol and littering. This happens mostly evenings and weekends.

Since we initiated this plan we have continued a visible presence and community interaction to observe any ASB, litter or damage in the effected areas. We have spoken to numerous youths and outlined what the plan was about and what we expected from them. Incidents have been virtually non-existent since our surge of attention along with less litter and alcohol containers. We have conducted final consultations with residents in the effected areas who have given us a positive response to this plan. They especially like seeing officers on patrol and engaging with the youths. Although this plan will be closed we will continue with standard visibility patrols around these areas.

Last year there was an increase in burglary dwellings during the summer months. As a result, this year local officers are conducting a burglary campaign, targeting offenders, liaising with neighbouring forces and providing crime prevention advice to residents.

The Rutland summer ‘Burglary Dwelling’ reduction campaign has been running from June to September. The total number of burglary dwelling offences reported for all of Rutland has been 14 during this four month period. Individual beats are as follows. Oakham & Barleythorpe = 3, Rutland North = 4, Rutland South = 3, Uppingham = 4.
Reducing burglary offences continues to be a priority for your beat teams.
Now that this summer burglary campaign has ended, please continue taking proactive steps to deter offenders. Please use this link for further burglary crime prevention advice from Leicestershire Police:- https://leics.police.uk/categories/advice-and-information/crime-prevention/burglary..
Please continue to report suspicious incidents / crimes on 101 (non-emergency) or 999 (emergency).

To tackle anti social behaviour in Hornbeam Lane, Uppingham

Community concerns raised with local officers about individuals causing ASB on residential street. Concerns initially discussed at JAG. We conducted a street briefing with local residents and member of Rutland County Council Community Safety Team. A joined partnership letter and incident dairies were distributed to each household. All incidents of ASB recorded and dealt with robustly. ASB contracts offered and raised for four individuals. Following a short period of improvement incidents of ASB began to re-occur. We worked closely with Spire homes and a notice to seek eviction was issued to two residents. This was subsequently enforced and residents moved from area. Following further consultation with residents the PSP was closed.

Anti-social behaviour committed by an individual in the Uppingham Market Place, Church Yard and Ayston Road areas. The individual has been highlighted to cause issues between 9am and 10pm throughout the whole week.

We have responded to this by targeting the individual and obtained an anti-social behaviour order (ASBO) with prohibitions, not to enter the Market Place, Uppingham, and not to be in possession of an open or opened vessel containing alcohol.

Road safety and speeding issues on London Road, Uppingham, between 7am to 9am and 4pm to 6pm.

The Uppingham Beat Team has worked closely with the community and Rutland County Council (RCC) Highways Dept to ensure a successful outcome. We held an Environmental Visual Audit (EVA) on 20th September 2010 and invited key member of the community and Neil Tomlinson from RCC to discuss the issues of concern for London Road, Uppingham. This was very positive and agreed on certain issues that could be investigated to improve the concerns raised. These were: -
(1) The speed humps to be repositioned with the addition of a separating barrier. This has gone to Chambers and hope that the funding be allocated and the work completed between Jan and Mar 2011.
(2) The speed sign exiting Uppingham on London Rd. Unfortunately there were no spare signs but we have been placed on a RCC list to be allocated one as and when available.
(3) The traffic light speed sensor. This is currently being discussed in Leicester but no decision has been made as of yet.
However the speed survey equipment from RCC will be going out on London Rd near to the traffic lights to offer further information. We hope that this will be within the next 4 weeks. The Uppingham Beat Team are also trying to start a Community Speed Watch scheme and are in talks with RCC to start a separate scheme from Leicestershire which is on going.

We have also issued every child on the estate with high visibility arm bands for their safety and conducted daily high visibility patrols and speed checks in the area. We tasked our Traffic Management Department to conduct speed monitoring on Seaton Road which has highlighted the issue and has been shown as a designated area for further speed checks. We have also attended the Uppingham Town Council AGM meeting and made them aware of the situation and a further report was submitted and councillors have pledged their support to help us resolve the problem.

With partner agencies aim to reduce residential
burglaries and commercial burglaries in licensed
premises, Uppingham.

Through consultation and crime analysis we noticed an increase in burglaries in Uppingham â?" we had nine in a three month period so we set this as a priority to try and reduce this number. We have spent four days in Uppingham on our 'Darker Nights Initiative' and spent time visiting residents of Uppingham offering practical crime prevention advice to reduce the risk of being burgled. We have also achieved this through targeting known hot spot areas with a massive increase in high visibility patrols both from our team and other Rutland officers who have spent time in Uppingham. We feel this has been a great success and we have not had one report of a domestic burglary since 5th November 2009.

To work with partner agencies to reduce incidents
of anti-social behaviour around High Street East,
Market Place and Branston Road.

by continuing to work hard with other agencies to tackle
the issue of anti-social behaviour. With the help of
information from residents in Uppingham we have
successfully prosecuted Robert Dallimore from Branston
Road who is currently under a CRASBO (Criminal Anti-
Social Behaviour Order) and is now serving a fourteen
week sentence for various offences including a breach
of his CRASBO.
To ensure we continue to reduce anti-social behaviour
we are setting up three new Neighbourhood Watch
Schemes on Branston Road; The Quadrant and
Hornbeam Lane in Uppingham and, with the support of
the community, we hope to develop further schemes in
other residential areas. If you are interested in starting a
Neighbourhood Watch Scheme please contact one of
the Uppingham team. We will continue to work on this
priority over the winter months.

Issue dated: 17/08/2009

Action dated: 13/11/2009

To work with partner agencies to reduce incidents of anti-social behaviour around High Street East, Market Place and Branston Road.

The beat team took a multi agency approach to tackling
this priority which has proved extremely successful as
one man, who was causing significant problems, has
now been given a three year Criminal Anti-Social
Behaviour Order (CrASBO) banning him from Branston
Road. He has now moved away and the problems have
stopped. Residents feel much happier as there has
been a great improvement to their quality of life.
In addition, the manager of one of the public houses in
Uppingham has been removed, and the licensing
conditions changed, thanks to a multi-agency response
to the large number of complaints about disorder
outside the premises. Residents tell us there has been a
dramatic improvement and reduction in anti-social
behaviour. We will continue to address this priority
throughout the summer months.
