Public Space Protection Order Review
Harborough District Council and the Community Safety Partnership are in the process of extending the current PSPO, which covers anti-social drinking in some areas of Market Harborough and Lutterworth. The proposed order will be published here shortly.
The Community Safety Team at Harborough District Council has a new team member, Kay Aitken.
Police Beat Newsletters
The Police have started to publish local beat newsletters, click here to read about Lutterworth & Broughton Astley, or here to read about Harborough and Harborough North.
There have been an increase in the number of Police Ops to reduce retail theft within Harborough District, and the Community Safety Partnership have purchased three 'bodycams' for retailers to use to deter shop theft and also to record incidents where personal safety may have been an issue. So far, they have been used by Palmers in Ullesthorpe and Sainsburys, Mountain Warehouse and B&M Bargains in Market Harborough.
If you are interested in using one of the cameras within your retail unit, please contact the community safety team.
