Welcome
Harborough District Community Safety Partnership
Inside this issue:
How lucky are we to live so rurally? In these isolating times, there has been a huge increase in the numbers of us heading outside for exercise. Exercising locally under Covid restrictions means that there is more footfall on footpaths, but many public footpaths often run through someone else's business. By following the countryside code we can keep the impact to a minimum and keep footpaths free for everyone to enjoy their "local" space.
1. Respect - We certainly have had a fair amount of rain of late and the combination of usage and weather can make routes extra muddy. However if you are using them don't just be tempted to wander further into the field to get around the mud - this can damage crops already planted for the season, a local farmer has reported a footpath running through his land has widened from 2m to 11m. Keep to paths, give way to others where it is narrow, and leave gates as you find them.
2. Protect - Leave no trace of your visit, take litter home, including dog poo bags and keep dogs under effective control and on leads where there may be livestock. We are coming into lambing season and land owners with sheep will be extra busy with this process.
3. Enjoy - Plan ahead, check what facilities might be open, wear the right footwear (a big pair of wellies will help with the mud!), follow signs, and current Covid restrictions.

The pandemic has brought a huge change in public behaviour, and with it, problems we've never had before. Enforced isolation has lead to an increase in us getting out and about, on foot, enjoying our rural setting, but this has come at a cost to local farmers. This issue will look at the Countryside Code - given how local farms have been affected by Covid, Internet Safety Day, Homelessness, and some of the findings of the recent Police and Crime Commissioners Community Safety Survey. As always, we hope this newsletter finds you safe and well, but if you require support, please contact the Harborough Community Hub.

Safer Internet Day - 9th February
What is a right of way?
A right of way is a path that anyone has the legal right to use on foot and sometimes they also have conditions to be used by other forms of transport. Know the type of footpath you are venturing down first, here is some guidance;
Public footpaths are normally open only to walkers
Public bridleways are open to walkers, horse-riders and cyclists
Restricted byways are open to walkers, horse-riders, and drivers/riders of non-mechanically propelled vehicles (such as horse-drawn carriages and pedal cycles)
Byways Open to All Traffic (BOATs) are open to all classes of traffic including motor vehicles, though they may not be maintained to the same standard as ordinary roads.
Seasonal traffic regulation orders may be applied to sections of byways and footpaths from time to time, so they may be closed. This is to enable the environment to recover from damage or for repairs to be made.

Neighbour Disputes and Mediation
Page 3
Community Safety Partnership Newsletter
Issue 12
Everyone has the right to the quiet enjoyment of their home and Covid restrictions and repeated lockdown have ensured that many of us have spent more time at home than ever before. For some, the home has become an office, school and business location or maybe a DIY project and this has brought about new lifestyles that may impact on others, especially our neighbours.
Anti-social behaviour can include everyday incidents, such as overgrown gardens or noise nuisance from music, dogs and shouting, to more serious acts such as threatening behaviour or harassment. Good neighbours communicate with one another and are able to resolve their differences peacefully. Small compromises and an increased awareness can make a huge difference.
When communication and understanding breaks down we may involve outside agencies to try and resolve the problems and tension . Not all disagreements between neighbours will need to involve Police or Council and there is something proactive you can do to resolve the break down in communication. Here are some suggestions:
Speak to your neighbour about the problem;
Plan what you are going to say before seeing your neighbour;
Listen to your neighbour and your neighbour is more likely to do the same;
Avoid shouting or using abusive language.
If you don't feel you are able to do the above on your own then mediation can be an effective way of resolving neighbour disputes. It is a voluntary process, however by taking part it could help you resolve your problem(s) with your neighbour without involving other agencies. We would not advise mediation is used where there has been a serious act of violence or a criminal act.
Mediation allows you to reach a mutually acceptable solution, it is confidential, informal, aims for a win/win solution and it lets you decide what happens.
Mediation can be arranged with or without both parties meeting face-to-face. The mediator will work with both parties to help them communicate better, understand each other's concerns and jointly come up with solutions to help resolve disputes.
The mediator's role is to arrange a meeting on neutral ground (or at the moment, via phone, or online meetings), and encourages each party to talk freely, explain their point of view, find common ground and come up with an agreed way forward.
In some cases, where this is not possible, the mediator can act as a go-between, handling messages between each party until you both reach an acceptable solution. Remember, the mediator does not take sides, but they can encourage you both to work towards a solution you can be happy with, which will prevent the situation getting out of hand.
Harborough District Council may refer cases to an independent mediation service. If you require support with a neighbour dispute please contact communitysafety@harborough.gov.uk for advice.

Hate Crime Awareness
A hate crime is any criminal offence which is perceived by the victim, or anybody else, to be motivated by hostility or prejudice towards someone's:
• race
• religion
• sexual orientation
• transgender identity
• disability
These are known as 'protected characteristics'.
A hate crime can include verbal or online abuse, intimidation, threats, harassment, assault and damage to property.
A hate incident is behaviour which isn't a crime but which is perceived by the victim, or anybody else, to be motivated by hostility or prejudice based on the above characteristics.
You can report a hate crime to your local police on 101 or if the crime is happening or someone is in immediate danger please call 999. You can also report hate crimes or hate incidents online.
Police Contact Information
The alternative to phoning 101 is to report crimes to Leicestershire Police online. Reports are triaged, given a crime number and dealt with as they would do if they were reported over the phone. Have a look at www.leics.police.uk for further information or to report.

Community Safety Survey, Early Headlines
Thank you to everyone that completed the Police and Crime Commissioners Community Safety Survey at the end of last year – we had a fantastic response of over 400 replies from the Harborough District. We are reviewing the results to update the Community Safety Action Plan for the coming year 21/22, to be published in April, in the meantime, here are some early headlines;
This year the need to feel safe at home has been hugely important, 85% of you felt safe in your home during the day, with 80% of you also feeling safe outside in your local area during the day. We have seen communities come together and support each other and 89% of you feel like you could ask your neighbour for help.
45% of you felt ASB was a problem, with the most common issues being dog fouling, flytipping and vandalism.
59% of you do not feel crime is a problem locally, but for those that did, the most frequent experienced or witnessed were vehicle crime, rural crime (for example theft from a farm) and online crime (such as fraud). However only 13% of respondents had been a victim of crime in past 12 months and of those 44% did not report their incident to the police.
3% of you felt ASB had decreased in the past 12 months and 5% felt crime had reduced. Actually overall crime has decreased in the past year as have incidents of ASB, so one of the things we will be focusing on will be communicating these good news stories and also encouraging the reporting of both crime and ASB.
The Police produce monthly newsletters to report on local crime and policing issues, you can view these on the Community Safety News and Campaigns page on our website. The January newsletter looks at how the new workforce model, adopted in March 2020, has made significant improvements to the policing across the district, and in particular, the Lutterworth and Broughton Astley beat. Response times are quicker and there are more officers and time for proactive patrols. Per shift, on average, each officer spends only about 1.5hours in the station, meaning the rest of the time they are out on patrol and 'visible' . In terms of local policing, people have previously raised concerns about the lack of police presence, but this is a huge step forward and helps to account for the speedier response times and their increased presence in patrol areas is also a preventative. Across the whole Leicestershire Police Force, Harborough and Wigston has the 3rd lowest crime statistics, within which, Broughton Astley has the lowest crime stats for the policing area and Lutterworth has the third lowest. Furthermore, specific operations were run in Lutterworth from September to November 2020, that tackled the annual spike in crime, the operation resulted in 67 less offences overall and with the population increases, the crimes per person rate has decreased significantly, and you are less likely to be a victim of crime in Lutterworth and Broughton Astley.

If you see someone sleeping rough in our district you can report it online through Streetlink or by telephoning Streetlink on
0300 5000 914. Streetlink is the national rough sleeping reporting service enabling the public to quickly connect rough sleepers to local services. Referrals to Streetlink also go to the Harborough Housing Team.
If the Harborough Housing Team are made aware of someone sleeping rough then there are options to help them to find housing and support. This could be by assisting them to move into their own property or by helping them to move to a supported hostel. They can also help to sort out benefits to ensure that everyone has an income. Harborough District Council work with a number of supporting agencies across the district to help rough sleepers and people at risk of homelessness. No one should have to live on the streets or be begging, but they do need to be willing to engage with services for support.
If you are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless you should contact the council as soon as possible. You can do this online (www.harborough.gov.uk), by email (hhs@harborough.gov.uk) or by calling the council on 01858 828282.

A man has been arrested in connection with a reported cyber-attack at Welland Park School, Market Harborough.
Officers received a report of a major IT outage at the school on Monday 18 January that prevented the school from delivering remote learning and accessing material to support the children of keyworkers and vulnerable children who are attending school.
It was subsequently discovered that a sophisticated cyber-attack had occurred which affected personal devices that connected to the school's network.
92 personal devices had been affected.
Officers from the force's Cyber Crime Unit are investigating the incident and a 28-year-old man from Wellingborough has been arrested under section 1 and 3 of the Computer Misuse Act.
He has since been released under investigation and enquiries are continuing.
Officers worked round the clock with the school and Microsoft to remove the threat to personal devices, which was swiftly achieved and w ork is continuing to restore the school's IT capability as quickly as possible.
There is currently no evidence of any data exfiltration. Officers would like to thank school staff, parents and pupils for their support and cooperation during this investigation.
The Harborough neighbourhood team and the Local Priority tTeam have been hard at work this month:
• We have conducted patrols in the local area targeting beat priorities raised by members of the public.
• Vehicles located and seized for no tax.
• Local officers made an appearance on HFM answering questions asked by the community.
• Safeguarding visits have been completed.
• Intelligence gathered regarding drug dealing.

Waitrose at Market Harborough & Leicestershire Police colleagues have given donations for our new children's place of safety room at Market Harborough Police Station for the children in our community in need of a safe and welcoming place whilst under police protection.
We are very grateful for all of the donations.
Day in the life of a PCSO
A day in the life of a Police Community Support Officer (PCSO).

Well for starters you never know what your day will bring.
The basic day will start with a team briefing from the Sergeant. He or she
gives a view of what is happening across our area. What crimes have
occurred, incidents that have happened and things of note that we need to know. The sergeant then wants to know what we are planning to do on our areas.
Then its checks on emails, tasks that are linked to those crimes and incidents
that have already been allocated to us. Possibly re prioritise the day depending
on what you find.
Then it's out on our beats, or not. We can also be asked to go to other areas to assist with operations and enquiries across the force. We quite often get asked to assist our Major Crime Unit with House to House and CCTV enquiries leaving police officers free to carry out more in-depth enquiries.
We can assist with traffic accidents, usually controlling traffic, or securing the scene of an accident. Some not serious but need looking at. Some sadly more serious, and our Collision Investigation Team are involved. These are classed from serious and life threatening, or worse.
It's not always intense. Our main role is to be part of the community, talking to people, discussing issues, giving advice, listening.
We deal with low level crime, anti-social behaviour, but we don't arrest people. We don't carry batons, sprays or Taser. That's for the warranted officers. As it says in our title we are here to support our communities and our police officer colleagues.
All PCSO's are allocated a beat. If you want to know who your beat team is in your area go to the Leicestershire Police website, where you can find out details of who we are and those issues that are effecting that area. You can help with that by signing up to Neighbourhood Link and completing a short survey, letting us know what concerns you. It's a service that sends out email messages not only from the beat team, but other support agencies covering Leicestershire.
You can also follow us on Twitter and Facebook. For more details go to our website.

Lutterworth and Broughton Astley
Lutterworth and Broughton Astley
It was a busy start to 2021 with an unusually high number of vehicle related incidents occurring in Broughton Astley, Lutterworth and the surrounding villages. As well as vehicles being stolen, there were a number of thefts of registration plates and catalytic converters. Thieves simply cut the catalytic converter from the exhaust pipe of a parked car and sell them on to scrap metal dealers.
We are doing all we can to find those responsible for these offences and have increased visibility through additional patrols. You can help us by reporting any suspicious behaviour. Please be assured that we will take your call seriously and what you see may be invaluable and help us prevent and detect crime.
We are advising drivers to follow the following crime prevention advice to help protect their vehicles from theft of catalytic converter.
• Keep your vehicle parked in a garage if possible.
• Park close to fences, walls or a kerb with the exhaust being closest to these.
• Consider CCTV/ PIR security systems or lighting where you park your vehicle.
• If your catalytic converter is bolted on, consider having the bolts welded.
• Fit protective coverings on catalytic converters, such as the Toyota CATLOC.
• Have your catalytic converter etched or forensically marked and put stickers in the
• windscreen to say this has been done.
• Car parks with a Secured Car Park sign have recognised levels of security.
• Noisy gravel on your drive can help deter a would-be thief.
For more crime prevention advice, please visit the website at www.leics.police.uk
Throughout January, officers have recovered several vehicles in Lutterworth and Broughton Astley
for not having insurance, tax or a valid MOT. We have also recovered vehicles that were on cloned plates.
Beat Surgeries
In line with government advice around Covid-19, we have postponed our community consultations and beat meetings. Our officers will continue to be active in your community. We will re-arrange events as soon as we can. Remember you can always report crime :

To help with our beat priorities, we are supported by the Road Safety Partnership. The Road Safety Partnership give local teams a summary of their activities. The sites visited in December were as following and including offences reported:
A4304 High Street, Husbands Bosworth :Total Offences: 0
A4304 Kilworth Road, Husbands Bosworth : Total Offences: 0
A4304 Lubbenham Hill, Market Harborough: Total Offences: 7
A4304 Lubenham Village (2 visits) : 24
B581 Broughton Way, Broughton Astley : Total Offences: 7
B581 Station Road, Broughton Astley : Total Offences: 10
You can report speeding concerns on the Road Safety Partnerships website: https://www.speedorsafety.com/
Lutterworth officers were called to investigate a burglary and the theft of a car. Due to the beat team's excel-lent community relations, we were able to be in the right place at the right time.
Unfortunately, the suspect didn't want to stop for police. He rammed into the police vehicle. Fortunately no one was hurt.
He was caught a short time later and arrested. During the investigation, the male was charged with driving whilst disqualified, driving over the limit and a taking without consent (TWOC) offence. The male has faced the courts and has been remanded into custody.

In December 2020, PCSO 6569 Peter Wilson retired having worked for 24 years since 1996. He started his career working as a traffic warden and then went on to be a Police Community Support Officer. His contribution and dedication will always be a prime example for others and we will miss him.
