Police Officer Information for Bosworth, Ratby, Groby, Markfield and Stanton

NameRankBio
James Cross Sgt

'Hello, I am Sergeant James Cross, the dedicated Neighbourhood Sergeant for Market Bosworth, Ratby, Groby, Markfield and Stanton area. I started my career in policing in 2004 and was initially posted to Hinckley area spending a year patrolling the Market Bosworth boundaries as a PC.

In 2009 I was promoted and became a Sergeant initially covering the response teams at Wigston. Over my time I have managed teams covering most areas of Leicester including returning to the Hinckley and Blaby area for a short period of time.

In 2014 I managed the Missing Person Team working closely with partners including social care to locate and bring about the safe return of vulnerable adults and children. Then in December 2016 I moved to the role as Custody Officer working in the cells managing the care and detention of people arrested in Leicestershire.

I am now returning back to the Hinckley and Blaby policing area into a neighbourhood policing role, an area of police work that I very passionate about and I am looking forward to the new challenge.

I have inherited a small but well-rounded beat team, who between them they have a wealth of knowledge not only in policing but on the local area and issues raised by you as members of the community.

I intend on continuing the good work and close links that have been formed with local partners to resolve locally identified issues. I also intend on working closely with the community to identify issues that directly affect the local residents and businesses and addressing them accordingly.

If anyone wishes to speak directly with myself or a member of the beat team please send us an email on the link below.’

Robert Cross PC

I have worked for the police since January 2004 and I have responsibility for Market Bosworth and the wider rural area. I live locally and understand the issues faced by the local community. A large part of my work involves a focus on combating rural crime, engagement with isolated rural businesses and farms and other policing issues. I work closely with officers from Warwickshire police to enhance cross border relationships and information sharing.
I’m always happy to help – the best way to contact me is by email.

Phil Hale PC

I joined Leicestershire Police in 1987 starting as a general duties officer at Braunstone. I have worked at Beaumont Leys and New Parks Police stations in the city before transferring to Market Bosworth as a Principal Beat Officer. This enabled me to work in my local area, embracing the challenges of Neighbourhood Policing and assisting the people of Market Bosworth and surrounding villages. I am predominately responsible for Barlestone, Bagworth, Desford and many of the smaller villages centred around Bosworth. Along with the rest of the Safer Neighbourhood Team, I am committed to facing and dealing with the problems in the area, involving our partnership agencies where appropriate.

Allan Charles PCSO

I have been employed by Leicestershire Police for over 12 years and have spent 10 years of those within the neighbourhood policing role working on a busy inner city estate beat covering New Parks and Braunstone Estate before later joining the counties working in the Braunstone town and Thorpe Astley area.

I am looking forward to working alongside my colleagues on the Bosworth, Ratby, Groby and surrounding villages beat and I hope using the experience and knowledge I have gained to best use.

This is a new area for me and I will enjoy getting to know the people and the area.

I am very approachable so feel free to stop and chat to me with any issues you may have.

In recent weeks there has been an increase in the volume of anti-social behaviour reported to us. This anti-social behaviour on the whole is typically seasonal and in line with historical data. Local residents have raised this as a concern directly with officers or via their local councillors. This type of ASB is largely linked to young adults in and around recreational areas who are consuming alcohol and making excess noise at unreasonable hours.

In the Spring/Summer 2017 there was a number of complaints received from local residents across the beat area about excessive traffic congestion as a result of local tourist attractions. A number of local residents have expressed their concerns to us that they are going to experience similar issues this year.
This month officers will be taking a proactive approach around this visiting such attractions and discussing what provisions they have made to address the problems experienced last year.

We have worked in conjunction with a number of tourist attractions across the policing area ensuring that they have working practices in place to reduce and ease traffic congestion where possible. Whilst traffic congestion and poor parking continues to be reported at peak times there has been a significant reduction in disruption caused. As a priority this will now be closed and monitored on an adhoc basis locally.

We collated Beat survey questionnaires outlining specific complaints from residents allowing us to identify individuals responsible for anti social behaviour. A specific operation (VARIX) was conducted in the evenings for the duration of the Christmas holidays. This allowed 2 dedicated officers per day to cover the villages between 6pm and 10pm concentrating on specific locations and responding to calls relating to anti-social behaviour.

The project allowed the team to work with over 30 youths from a number of villages that were involved in or on the fringes of anti-social behaviour. A range of activities and presentations were undertaken by the group over a period of eight weeks and the results have been excellent. During school holiday periods the neighbourhood team have been involved in Operation Varix which allows designated officers to conduct time-specific patrols to local parks and other locations that historically suffer from nuisance behaviour. Latest figures show that recorded anti-social behaviour is running at the lowest level for three years. We will keep this priority running for the next three months.

It was our intention to get across the message, to the small minority that want to upset the majority in our villages, that it is not acceptable and will not be tolerated.
