Firstly, I hope you have all had an enjoyable summer and made the most of the weather we've had before the colder months arrive! I would still like to take the opportunity to advise everyone to ensure all properties and vehicles are left locked and secured. This is to prevent opportunist burglars from taking advantage of easy entry to houses or vehicles.

I'd encourage anybody who witnesses anyone or anything suspicious to contact Police on 101 (non-emergency number) or 999 as appropriate.

Whilst there have been fewer reports of Anti-Social Behaviour across our local parks in comparison with recent years, Police are still receiving complaints of Criminal Damage and Littering around Narborough Park, Narborough Cricket Club, Six Acre Field on The Pastures and Thorpe Meadows, Littlethorpe.
These areas feature highly on Local Police patrols. Earlier in August, the local Policing team completed a "Drugs Operation" around the local area with the assistance of Nottinghamshire Police who kindly supplied their passive drugs dog "Ross". The operation was highly successful with numerous youths dealt with for possession of drugs and offensive weapons.

Speeding operations have also been conducted around the local area along Warwick Road - Littlethorpe, Forest Road - Narborough, The Pastures - Narborough and Shortridge Lane - Enderby. Again, this was highly successful with numerous road users being identified for speeding.
