POLICE have revealed a plan to reduce crime across Rutland and Leicestershire.

The Policing Plan 2012 set out by Leicestershire Constabulary highlights a series of performance targets for the police to achieve to make the area a safer place to live, work and visit and to protect residents over the next 12 months.

Targets were set through consultation meetings which were held in the county over the last year.

The concerns in Rutland include rural crime, speeding and anti-social behaviour.

Chief Constable Simon Cole said: “This plan captures the concerns of local people and partners, and gives us a clear focus for the year ahead.”

Chairman of Leicestershire Police Authority and Rutland county councillor Barrie Roper said: “This plan is a continuation of last year’s ambitions.

“It challenges the force to deliver further improvements in performance, service standards and value for money for the benefit of the public.”
