There has been growing concerns with vehicle crime in the area. We have received a number of crime reports relating to "Theft from Motor Vehicles". Majority of this is criminals going around and checking car doors. Those vehicles that are insecure have had items stolen. There has been also a few incidents where forced entry has been committed as well. Due to the community concerns "Op Pioneer" has been launched in order to monitor vehicle crime in the area.

‘Op Pioneer’ was launched in the area to help combat theft from motor vehicles, most commonly theft of tools from vans. Over the past few weeks officers have been working hard to help reduce vehicle crime and as such several people have been arrested across the Leicestershire area in connection with such crimes. We have also used 'Social Media' to encourage people to secure their vans and to continue to take valuable tools out of their vehicles. Please could I reassure the community that we are still patrolling your area so please continue to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity. Thank you everyone that has assisted the police in their enquiries.

We have been notified by local Retail Shops in Wigston relating to the ongoing issue of theft from stores. Your local team are working closely with retail shops and developing new ways in getting all retail stores to talk, work together and share information in order to identify the shoplifters and deter them away. We are using social media and forming links together to try and combat this. Local shops are now able to update other retail shops of anyone committing crime or ASB.

Local shops in Wigston are working together with other retailers and the Police. They have all formed an online group where they are able to communicate issues together. This seems to have reduced the concern for shop thefts and ASB. This also allows the Police to also keep in touch with the local community by using the Safeland App to monitor what is occuring.

We have received reports that local youths are climbing onto the roof at the rear of the main shopping area in Wigston Town Centre. There has been cases where they have broken roof tiles belonging to one particular shop and have thrown them around which also causes a danger to those walking on public walkways as well as danger of being on the roof as well.

We are working with local partners and using social media with local businesses to share information to identify suspects causing this issue. We urge members of the public to remain vigilant at all times when visiting Wigston Town Centre. If you do see youths on the roof I would urge you to call us immediately so we can dispatch officers to identify who they are.

You local Wigston team have spoken to various groups and have closely monitored their behaviour. There appears to be a significant reduction with incidents of youths on the roof. However this will be reviewed again during the summer months to avoid any further issues happening again. Please could I urge the community to continue to call us if they do see any youths on the roof.

"During the half term period, we had a spike in phone calls about a group of youths causing issues for staff and members of the public at McDonalds. The main perpetrators have been identified and dealt with accordingly. Since then, we have seen a drop in incidents being reported at McDonalds and are continuing to work with staff to reduce anti-social behaviour.

Prior to this, the Wigston community experienced many issues with certain young people in the town centre where the neighbourhood team led several operations on different evenings. This consisted of having an increased police presence, using Section 35 Dispersal Power’s and working with local businesses to deter the problem. The individuals who were causing the problems were dealt with in several different ways. Some were giving banning letters local businesses, others were taken home and one individual was issued a Section 59 for using a moped inappropriately. If used again in this manner, the moped can be seized.

Please note that we have also had a rise in burglaries being reported to us since mid-February, some happening in the afternoon/evening and others overnight. We are being proactive in our patrols but please be vigilant and report any suspicious circumstances to the police."

Due to dedicated High Visibility patrols a partnership working, we have managed to reduce the number of call coming in around this issue. The Neighbourhood Team will continue to monitor the situation.
