November Monthly Update for Melton Town Centre:
The three Priorities for the Melton Town Centre Beat remain as:
Drug Dealing
Drug Taking
This month has seen the departure of PC Davey Rawlings to pursue his interest in CID. We have welcomed PC Shane Sanderson as the new Beat Officer. Shane is really looking forward to his new challenge working in Neighbourhoods and is really looking forward to meeting everybody, please do say hello if you see him out and about on patrol.

The main issue for Town Centre this month has been ASB in McDonalds, has affected staff and members of the public who were using the restaurant. We have been conducting high visibility patrols, engaging with the youths and staff at McDonalds.
We have been working closely with other Beat Teams to I.D the youths and to visit parents.
A number of youths have been issued with Banning Orders and Warning Letter’s and parent’s addresses have been visited, with a warning that if their child’s behaviour continues, this could affect their tenancy if they are a council tenant.
We have also liaised with IMPACT, the youth engagement Team, who are going to engage with the youths on a Tuesday evening.

We fully appreciate the negative impact that ASB happens and how it can affect people mentally and physically, so please do not hesitate to report ASB to Police online via , or by calling the Police on 101, (always 999 in an emergency).

Drug Dealing
A patch walk was completed with Jodie Neville, the Housing Officer for Melton Town Centre and the Town Centre Beat Team, visiting various houses and areas of the beat, speaking to tenants about any possible breach of their tenancy. We use a multi-agency approach to deal with any reports to us regarding any issues such as neighbour issues, the smell of cannabis and possible drug use.
A further Patch Walk is planned in mid-December with Environmental Officer David Walker joining us.
We are always grateful for your help and involvement on bringing offenders to justice, therefore we are urging anyone to report any information known about the supply of drugs to us by calling 101, or via our Facebook or Twitter accounts. You can also report information to us completely anonymously via Crime Stoppers online, or over the phone, their website is and their phone number is 0800 555 111.

Drug Taking
This Month we have been proactive with our drug taking priority, an example of this would be a Stop and Search that was completed in the Town Park, a member of public approached PC Sanderson and PCSO 6676 to report a small group of youths that he reported were smoking Cannabis.
All three youths were Stop Searched by PC Sanderson, and cannabis was seized from one of the youth, which is leading to an integrated approach with the Youth Offender Team.
We hope this sends a clear message that if any intelligence is given to us, we will act upon this appropriately. We will continue to patrol and gather intelligence around drug taking use in the Town Centre.

From November the 9th and for one week, Leicestershire Police undertook knife crime action as part of the National Operation Spectre. This was supported by the force’s established #LivesNotKnives campaign and partnership work which aims to reduce knife crime by targeting those carrying weapons and disrupt the supply of knives available to use.
Please note, that anybody can still come in to the station and deposit any knives safely in the knife bin located in the Front Enquiry Office.

The Town Centre Beat, provided local pubs and nightclub with a Knife Wand which was used by door staff for people entering the establishment during this Op.
A knife search was also conducted by officers in the Town Park. Nothing of note was found.

We have been out on high visibility Foot for each shift, patrolling all areas of The Town Centre, thank you to those that have reported anything to us or approached us for a chat whilst we have been out and about.

Thank you once again to everyone who has completed the “Your Views Matter Survey”, which is a big part of setting our priorities. If you haven’t yet completed the survey, you can do so by clicking on the link below:
