Police Officer Information for Rutland South

NameRankBio
Peter Icke PC

I joined Leicestershire Police in 2004, having previously worked in the engineering sector for over 20 years.

I started my career on the Melton area in 2004 where I worked as a General Duty Officer before joining Rutland in April 2007. Since joining Rutland, I have been part of a Neighbourhood Action Team and have spent a period of time in CID. I have just spent 6 years as the Beat Manager for Uppingham and previous to that I managed Oakham Town before moving to my current role of Dedicated Neighbourhood Officer for Rutland South in April 2017.

I will be working closely with the rest of the neighbourhood team providing a visible police presence, identifying and putting into place community issues, along with tackling crime and anti-social behaviour within the area

Andy Wylie PCSO

I became a PCSO in March 2005.

I have been stationed in Uppingham since October 2005 and I have now joined to assist Rutland South Beat team. 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 Rutland South

IssueActionDates

The issues identified are burglaries, burglary other than from dwellings, and theft from vehicles in beauty spots. This is an issue for the rural community and we will look to conduct regular targeted patrols and joint cross border work with Northamptonshire and Lincolnshire Police to run Op Hexagon in relation to burglaries and Op Galileo, targeting rural wildlife crime and cross border criminality.

Issue dated: 04/03/2019

Action dated: 30/11/-0001

To tackle theft from motor vehicles over the summer period around the perimeter of Rutland Water and surrounding villages. As the weather improves we have an influx of vehicles into the county especially around Rutland water where drivers either leave their vehicle’s insecure, property on display or are seen by thief’s moving property from the cockpit into the boot area where their vehicles are then broken into.

This initiative has been a great success with a clear reduction in vehicles being broken into, especially around Rutland water. With the Summer ending and less visitors to the area we are now closing this plan, but will continue when on routine patrol to check vehicles and put notes on those displaying any property.

Issue dated: 19/05/2017

Action dated: 04/09/2017

To tackle and reduce crime in Barrowden village.

High visibility patrols by local officers have been made in the area to tackle and reduce crime in Barrowden village, with one male having been arrested. The local beat team liaised with surrounding forces and sharing intelligence to tackle these issues.
There have been no reported crimes in the village during the last two months, which have increased community confidence and reassurance.
As a result, this priority has now been closed.

Issue dated: 19/11/2016

Action dated: 01/02/2017

To tackle hare coursing around villages along the A47 corridor between Uppingham and Tixover as well as areas between Langham and the A1.

We have continued to work hard to tackle this issue since October last year and have noted a reduction in incidents reported through 101. I would like to say a massive thank you to all the local residents, dog walkers and especially farmers that have supported both the North and South beat teams to tackle this issue and without their support we would not achieve the success we have. This month I am happy to say that we have not had a single report of Hare coursing and therefore this priority will be closed down.

Issue dated: 04/10/2016

Action dated: 19/05/2017

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).

This problem profile has now been closed. Thank you for your support.

Motorists are regularly speeding along the A606 in Empingham village.

This Neighbourhood Priority has tackled the speeding issues in Empingham village.
I have liaised with Rutland County Council & traffic calming measures have now been introduced either side of the village to help reduce speed.
Speed enforcement by the beat team has taken place & since May, 15 Traffic Offence Reports & 74 cautions have been issued.
I have also begun to start a new community speed watch in the village.
The camera van continues to use this site as a community concern site, so I feel this NHP can now be closed.
Ad-hoc checks will be done by the beat team as routine.

Action dated: 03/09/2016

To tackle Hare Coursing around villages along the A47 corridor between Uppingham and Morcott.

Since the beginning of April 2016, there has now only been only 1 report of hare coursing on the Rutland South beat reported to police. Incidents relating to hare coursing have also dropped off on the neighbouring Rutland north beat. Hare coursing historically drops off this time of year when the crops in fields begin to grow, restricting hare coursing.
This problem profile is seasonal, occurring from November to April and is dependant on conditions and weather.
There have been no prosecutions specifically linked to hare coursers in Rutland during the problem profile period this season, but there has been vehicle seizures and numerous stop checks and Intelligence obtained. Rural Watch and Farm Watch have been utilised as has social media such as Facebook and twitter, to keep the rural / farming community informed.
I would like to thank the rural community for their support and reports they have made to the police to combat this problem.
As such, this problem profile will now be closed.

To tackle burglary related crime in and around Ketton village.

Since the 1st Jan 2016, there have been 11 BOTDs and 1 Burglary dwelling, having occurred in Ketton. The majority having occurred in January, some in February, and two BOTDs in March. There have been none since as of 7th April. I feel this is partly down to the good work completed by the beat team carrying out patrols in the area and liaising with boarding forces and the pro-active work targeting the nominal James Mitchell (still wanted) but now less active on our NPA. As a result, it is clear that Ketton burglary related crime has decreased significantly and feel this PSP can now be closed.

Action dated: 07/04/2016

To tackle thefts from unattended motor vehicles from around the perimeter of Rutland water.

It is now early October & the Summer season at Rutland Water is over. Throughout this period there has been a large amount of visitors to the area.
All the vehicle crime hotspot areas had been identified at the start of the PSP & crime prevention warning signs erected in these areas.

We have worked closely with the Anglian Water wardens who operate in the area & have developed an excellent working relationship with them.

All the main car parks have automated barriers now, which has cut thefts from vehicles by 100% in these automated areas. It is just the perimeter roads & lay-bys where vehicles are at risk.

Thefts from unattended motors around Rutland Water have more than halved this year (5) compared with the same period last year and as such this PSP has been a great success and can now be closed.

Meetings have also taken place with officers from surrounding forces to share and gather intelligence. Since the police intervention, no further crimes have been committed in the village, which is excellent and reassurance and confidence within the community has increased.

parked over night in the centre of the village. We held a
four day crime prevention initiative where we visited
every household in Lyddington completing a crime

leaflets and UV pens for protecting valuable items. This
event improved awareness and suggested ways of
making homes more secure and was supported by the
introduction of Smartwater - a DNA based property
marking product.
This has been a very successful campaign with a 77%
reduction in reported burglaries during the last three
months with two crimes reported to us compared to nine
in the previous three month period.
