Police Officer Information for Countesthorpe, Foston and Kilby

NameRankBio
Andy Cox Sgt

I have been a Police officer for 26 years and have served at various police stations including Braunstone, Beaumont Leys, Lutterworth, Belgrave, Wigston and the City Centre at various ranks (Including Acting Inspector).
To move back into Neighbourhood Policing is a great privilege as I believe that the primary core of Policing stems from working for, with and within the community, to help create a better society for all.
That said, Policing and the society it polices has changed and the challenge is to keep providing the best service that we can, working with our partners and other agencies to accomplish that with less resources, staff and money and help the community understand that.
I look forward to the next chapter of my Policing life and whatever that does bring.

Mark Hall PC

I joined Leicestershire Police back in 1999 where I have worked as a front line general response officer for some 10 years working for the majority of my time in the Braunstone area dealing with many immediate response incidents. I am now a member of the Dedicated Neighbourhood Team responsible for your area and I look forward to engaging with the local community and tackling local issues that may arise. I have a strong foundation knowledge of this area and hope to make an impact in reducing the amount of reported incidents.

Sarah Eastwood PCSO

I joined Leicestershire Police in 1991 and have had numerous roles within the Force.

I have been a Police Community Support Officer for eight years where I have worked at Hinckley Road and the Braunstone Estate for the majority of this time.

I have now transferred to Blaby and I aim to work closely with the beat team to make the beat a safe and pleasant area to live and work in.

Together the team aim to reduce crime and show a visible presence which I hope will provide reassurance to the general public and residents of this beat.

Action dated: 30/11/-0001

You have let us know that the problem of mini moto’s and mopeds have risen again and causing nuisance around the area of Countesthorpe.
Calls from the public help identify where the problem areas are and descriptions of bikes and those that are riding them.

After we recently seized a Moped that has been ridden without proper documentation and used in Anti-Social Behaviour there have been no further reports of bike related ASB.
Therefore we have closed this report.

Issue dated: 01/11/2018

Action dated: 01/01/2019

Having analysed our crime over the past three years there have been a spike of vehicle crimes occurring in and around the Countesthorpe area. Most of these vehicles are locked and suspect(s) have used unknown means to gain entry into the vehicles. On a few occasions windows had been smashed to gain entry.
There are also another group focused on theft of tools from vans.

Patrols have occurred and several offenders have been dealt with via the justice system from nearby areas who were believed involved in committing crime in the Countesthorpe area.
This has resulted in a reduction in vehicle crime across the area.
As a result this priority is now closed.

Issue dated: 23/09/2018

Action dated: 31/10/2018

Action dated: 01/10/2018

Reports of deliberate fires being set around the areas of Linden Farm Drive, Countesthorpe close to crop fields.

The Beat team have been in contact with the local parish council, and Blaby district council as they were the owners of where the fires were deliberately set. The area of field which was set alight has now been chopped back and all remnants of the damaged area removed . Enquires and reassurance have been completed with local residents around the area of the fires.

Some CCTV footage was viewed but unfortunately nothing of evidential value. The month of August we were alerted to another fire near to the Redrow Estate. We are looking into any Anti-social behaviour in this area and around the village that may provide us with any further intelligence regarding the fires.
We have liaised with the local fire service with hopes to arrange a fire safety talk within local schools and partnership groups. Parish councillors were sent a local beat report with an update on these issues which could be raised at the local parish meeting

Issue dated: 01/08/2018

Action dated: 01/09/2018

There has been disposals of small empty silver gas canisters in large quantities in rural locations. The canisters are believed to contain nitrous oxide, (or more commonly known as 'laughing gas').

Issue dated: 01/07/2018

Action dated: 01/08/2018

There have been concerns raised by the Parish Council and residents in the Countesthorpe area of suspicious cold callers encouraging residents to have unnecessary work completed on their house for extravagant amounts of money.
Those residents are predominantly elderly and are put under pressure and worry by the callers with false stories ranging from the property will fall down, to they will be evicted if they don't have the work completed there and then.
We will liaise with partner agencies including BDC, Housing and Trading Standards to support the identification of vulnerable areas and residents and take action against those who are identified as conducting this sort of behaviour.
We ask that that you remain vigilant and pass on any information to ourselves or Blaby District Council or Trading standards which may assist us in trying to crack down on this behaviour. Please contact us for advice or to report suspicious activity - 101 or 999 in an emergency. Or alternatively if you wish to attend one of our beat surgeries then please come along and let us know.

We worked with the local authority to help support and educate local residents in the ASB aspects of fly-tipping.

Issue dated: 01/01/2018

Action dated: 30/11/-0001

Staff members at Tesco have raised concerns of youths congregating outside the doorway causing obstructions to shop users.
Tesco suspect that some youths are causing distractions for others to shoplift and have banned some local youths from being on the premises due to rowdy and inconsiderate behaviour within the shop.
How has the Priority been determined?: Beat Team and Impact workers have consulted with Tesco and have a list of the few youths that have been banned from using Tesco. Staff feel that these banned youths are the few that are well known therefore easy to identify however they can not identify all those that they suspect of shoplifting and causing ASB.

Multiple patrols were carried out at different days and times to identify and deter further problems. Several youths were spoken to and 3 were given banning notices by several local stores. This has had the direct result of reducing trouble and reported ASB in the identified area's.
Feed back has been given to the local community of the outcome.

Issue dated: 01/11/2017

Action dated: 27/12/2017

There has been an increase in reports of Anti-Social behaviour on Dale Acre Park from early evening to late at night. This has been to the annoyance of local residents and resulting in the few spoiling the park for those for which it is meant to be used for.

The priority has been reviewed and actions completed. The local residents have been consulted since all the work around removing the trees, play equipment and patrols have occurred. All residents and BDC have stated that the issues that were originally identified have stopped.
Only one resident is still not happy that the situation has not been resolved to the level that they believe to be required. However, the young people who are using the location are doing so well within the parameters of what society would expect and what a reasonable person would say was acceptable which is supported by the other resident.
Young people are allowed to use the local facilities as much as other members of the community are and tolerance needs to be expected by all.
Feedback has been given to all parties and by positively working with BDC and taking positive action with regard to identifying and auctioning issues raised by the local residents, it has swiftly stopped further escalation.
Therefore this priority is now closed.

Issue dated: 01/08/2017

Action dated: 04/10/2017

Youths congregating in vehicles, causing disruption to local residents by playing loud music and driving dangerously, in the car park at Victory Park, Park Road, Cosby, between 7pm and 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays;

by dedicating foot and mobile patrols between the material times to identify vehicles that were gathering at the location and other young people associated with the vehicles. 8 letters were sent to vehicle owners containing Section 59 Warnings which outlined to them that their behaviour whilst in the park grounds would not be tolerated. There has been a significant decrease in the number of vehicles congregating at the location

Action dated: 01/01/2011

Parking issues on the main road through the centre of Cosby village, especially at the Croft Road T-junction where the pedestrian crossing is some times obstructed by cars parked illegally on the zig-zag lines; this problem is at its worst between 5pm and 7pm, seven days a week;

by carrying out targeted foot patrols here between 5pm and 7pm to gauge the extent of the parking problem. We were able to advise drivers and monitor the situation. Due to visitors to the Co-op and the Mercury News Shop creating a high demand for parking, members of the public began using the disused office premises forecourt located opposite as a way to ease congestion on the road. Blaby District Council have re-painted the road markings making them more visible and easier for road users to abide by. Since this time the parking problem has decreased, however there will always be a demand for parking spaces due to the popularity of the village amenities and the limited space available for vehicles. For this reason we have decided to close the priority but still monitor the situation.

Issue dated: 01/06/2010

Action dated: 01/08/2010

Congregating youths causing a nuisance to residents, retailers and visitors at The Bank and Brook Court, Countesthorpe, between 6pm and 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays.

by carrying out targeted foot patrols on Friday and Saturday evenings and engaging with local youths. We have also worked with local youth groups to provide activities for young people in the village. The problem has not been completely solved due to the location having a fast food shop and newsagents and we will continue to work with partners to address this. Youths who have been identified as causing any problems have been dealt with in partnership with Blaby District Council and have been sent warning letters. Consultation has identified that the problem has been significantly reduced.

Obstructive parking offences on Croft Road,
Cosby, near to the Co-op store, between 9am and

By carrying out foot and mobile patrols at different times during the day.We will continued them to embed the new parking restrictions and identify the most problematic times. Croft Road residents have continued to identify parking as a problem in community consultation questionnaires we have circulated. Eight people have been advised about their parking and so far nobody has been prosecuted.

The Neighbourhood Team intend to continue with this priority over.

Action dated: 01/06/2010

Youth anti-social behaviour including damage to
property and nuisance behaviour in the street, on
Gwendoline Drive and Wheatlands Drive,
Countesthorpe, from 3pm - 11pm.

By using targeted foot and mobile patrols in the area and a high visibility presence at the identified times. This has reduced the number of youths in the area and in turn the number of calls to the police has decreased. Regular callers have agreed that the issue has reduced tremendously. Details of youths found acting anti-socially have been taken and letters sent to parents via Blaby District Council. Two anti-social behaviour suspects are currently on bail for offences of criminal damage and public order, and this has sent out a strong message to local youths that this type of behaviour will not be tolerated. Community consultation questionnaires have indicated that the youth problem has migrated to the other end of the village. The Neighbourhood Team will now close this priority.

Issue dated: 01/02/2010

Action dated: 01/06/2010

Preventing youths acting in an anti-social manner
and the gathering of large groups in vehicles who
cause excessive noise and litter around the
church yard at Kilby on Fridays and Saturdays
between 10pm and 1am;

Using targeted patrols in the area, which have identified
that youths were congregating in vehicles, although no
evidence of drug use was found. Patrols at the location
after Friday and Saturday nights did not show any signs
of drug use or excessive littering as experienced in
previous months. The congregation at Kilby Church and
local residents have commented on the improvement.
For these reasons we have decided that this priority will
be closed.

Issue dated: 01/11/2009

Action dated: 01/03/2010

Tackling loud, alcohol-related anti-social
behaviour caused by youths gathering on foot and
in vehicles around the Victory Park car park, Park
Road, Cosby, on Thursday, Fridays and
Saturdays between 7pm and midnight;

By working closely with Blaby District Councilâ??s antisocial
behaviour team. Together, we took details of
those youths causing issues, and they were sent
warning letters. We have also sent targeted patrols to
the area. These have not found any drug or alcohol
offences. The problem of youths in vehicles driving
dangerously on the car park and along Park Road have
all but stopped. We will continue to monitor the situation
but at this time will close this priority.

Tackling nusiance from local youths including
throwing apples at neighbouring properties and
damaging play equipment at Dale Acre Park,
Countesthorpe, on Thursdays, Fridays and
Saturdays between 7pm and 1am.

Sending targeted patrols to the area, which have moved
the youths on and prevented the drinking which
normally fuels the disorderly behaviour. The youths
have been dealt with in partnership with Blaby District
Council's Anti-Social Behaviour Team and the local
schools by issuing warning letters to parents to inform
them of their behaviour. This and the darker, colder
nights, has seen a reduction in this problem. We have
therefore decided to close this priority.

Issue dated: 01/11/2009

Action dated: 01/03/2009

To tackle youth disorder on The Paddock, Station
Road, Countesthorpe. Youths are gathering on
The Paddock and being noisy and a general
nuisance to the local residents.

By maintaining visible foot and mobile patrols at hot spot
times on Station Road, around the village hall, The
Paddock and around St Andrew's church yard. There
have been fewer calls to the police in the area over the
last three months. We have identified the main youths
involved in the disorder and invited Blaby District
Council to work alongside us in educating them, which
in turn has ensured they deal with the consequences of
their actions. This priority will be clos ed.

Issue dated: 17/08/2009

Action dated: 13/11/2009

To tackle the youth disorder at Kilby Church, Kilby.
Youths are gathering in the church car park in
their motor vehicles. It is believed they are
gathering in the area to take drugs and litter the
area.

By carrying out door to door community consultations
with residents to identify the days and times that the
problem is occurring. We then patroled at these times to
deter any potential gatherings. This has resulted in a
number of vehicles being stop checked in the area and
dealt with accordingly, although no drugs have been
s eized. This priority will be carried over.

Issue dated: 17/08/2009

Action dated: 13/11/2009

To disrupt the low level anti-social behaviour
caused by youths on foot or in cars on Victory
Park car park on Park Road, Cosby.

By maintaining regular patrols along Park Road,
Narborough Road and Victory Park itself, particularly at
evenings and weekends. This has reduced the number
of youths gathering and acting anti-socially in the area.
Blaby District Council has again been involved and is
helping us to educate the youths involved. This priority
will again be carried over.

Issue dated: 17/08/2009

Action dated: 13/11/2009

To tackle the anti-social use of cars by young drivers who are gathering in the health centre car park on Central Street, Countesthorpe, until early hours of the morning.

The police have tackled this issue through working with
the local residents directly affected by the anti-social
behaviour, intelligence work with analysts to identify the
suspect vehicles, and proactive patrols concentrating
efforts on these vehicles. This action seems to have
reduced the incidents significantly and the vehicles
appear to have ceased gathering on the Health Centre
Car Park. The vehicles are all local to the area so the
issue will be closely monitored to prevent it from reoccurring.
Due to the above reasons we are going to
close this priority.

Issue dated: 18/05/2009

Action dated: 16/08/2009

To tackle the low level anti-social behaviour and underage drinking by youths hanging around the village hall car park, Station Road, Countesthorpe.

Through high visibility policing, working closely with the
local residents affected by the issue. The suspects we
have identified are youths who live and socialise in the
village. The incidents have significantly reduced
although not completely stopped. The neighbourhood
team have worked with the youths concerned to try to
educate them in their behaviour and this has
encouraged them to move onto other areas. We are
closing this priority.

Action dated: 16/08/2009

To disrupt the low level anti-social behaviour caused by youths on foot or in cars at the library car park on Park Road, Cosby.

By mounting regular patrols in the area, which has
reduced the numbers gathering. We have worked with
local residents and council to identify the time and dates
of the incidents to target patrols effectively. The council
has created a youth shelter on the park which is being
used by local youths. This will be reviewed as to
whether it is located in the correct location. This priority
will be carried over due to local residents' concerns.
