We are continuing with improvements to get better feedback in relation to resident concerns via our surveys. These improved surveys will help us target locations, times and incidents which will make our patrols more productive and hopefully resolve your concerns. Please could you take a few minutes to complete any of the below surveys that may relate to any issues you have. These replies also help form our neighbourhood priorities.

Road Safety Survey

Local Anti-Social Behaviour Survey

Hate Crime Survey


On Sunday 22nd August 2021 another high and wide load will be travelling from the A5 through Burbage towards Hinckley.

It will be under a Police escort and travelling between 1030 and 1300 hours.
It would be appreciated if Church Street can be left clear of parked vehicles during this time to allow the load to travel through safely.
As the load is high it has to travel on this dedicated high load route.  It is not permitted to use the motorway network.
Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.

We have received several reports of Anti-Social behaviour on parks and possible drug dealing. Please ensure you call 101 immediately regarding ASB so we are able to attend and challenge those involved. Please also provide as much information as possible such as vehicle registration plates regarding possible drug use/dealing.

Scam from resident Royal Mail. Email bypassed the spam folder from Royal Mail “Notice : Shipping Information Needed!!”

Thank you and remember to get in touch if you need advice, crime prevention support or have any information you may have that could help us.
