  • Lord Lieutenant’s Investiture Ceremony

    Nineteen officers and one Special were commended with long service medals for contributing over 369 years of service. Today (Tuesday May 5), Leicestershire Police held the Lord Lieutenant's Investiture Ceremony at Force Headquarters.

    Lord Lieutenant of Leicestershire, Lady Gretton, along with her Deputy Lieutenant, Bob Collins presented the awards.

    Lady Gretton said: “I was honored to be able to present the medals of long service and good conduct medals at the command of Her Majesty the Queen to very deserving police officers and special police officers.

    “Occasions like this really do make one appreciate the unique service which is provided to communities by our Police Service and its dedicated officers.”

    The long serving officers also received flowers and other gifts as a token of thanks from the Police Federation Joint Branch Board. Among those who received awards were:

    Police Constable Jo Preston started her career with Leicestershire Police in 1995 as a General Duty Officer. She was one of the first officers in the Force whilst carrying out her duties as a Beat Officer in Wigston. Jo is currently based at Market Harborough Station and received a long service award for contributing a total of 20 years to the Force.

    Detective Sergeant Mark Tuttle, who was a former accountant, received a long service award. He joined the Force in 1994 at the age of 21. Mark has worked in various roles during his 21 years, and is currently specialising in financial investigation.

    Police Constable Nik Peacock, based in Loughborough, received a Chief Constables Commendation for saving the life of an elderly diabetic female. He also got a Chief Constables certificate for outstanding work for long service, contributing 12 years.

    Nik said: “I am immensely proud to have served with some amazing people, both in the Leicestershire Police family and our partner agencies who have allowed me to continue to serve my community to the best of my ability. I have seen many changes with the greatest for me being our focus on Neighbourhood Policing, something that allows this great relationship to develop further within our communities.”

    Detective Inspector Steve Durrant initially began his policing career in Northamptonshire in 1994. His positions within the Force have varied from doing general duties to being seconded to the National Crime Squad. Steve also became Hinckley and Burbage’s Neighbourhood Sergeant and now works on special operations. Today he achieved a long service award for contributing 21 years.

    Police Constable Matt England has followed in his grandfather, Superintendent Dennis Smith’s footsteps as he suggested to Matt to become an officer.

    Matt said: “I joined Leicestershire Police as a result of listening to all the different stories my grandfather used to tell me and it sounded like something I would like to do. He was right, I have served 21 years within the Force and I still enjoy my role as much as I did when I joined in 1994.”

    Police Constable Chris Barnes has been awarded for contributing 21 years. Chris joined West Midlands Police in 1994 as a response officer. In 2008, he transferred from West Midlands to Leicestershire Police to join his current role within the Roads Policing Unit.

    Central Leicester Neighbourhood Policing Area Commander, Inspector Simon Preston, has been awarded today for contributing 22 years to the Force. As well as previously achieving a Chief Constable Award for Outstanding Work he has also received Chief Superintendent Awards for his outstanding work on two major investigations.

    Simon said: “I started in the City Centre as a Special in 1993 and have gone full circle, now in charge of policing in that same City Centre. I have thoroughly enjoyed my 22 years and feel honoured to receive this award”

    Jon McGuinness is the third generation within his family to join the Force. Jon was originally stationed at Mansfield House as a Special Constable in 2006, following his late grandfather Pete Mason who was a Police Constable. Jon has worked at Loughborough and Syston Police Station where his father, former Sergeant Wilf McGuinness worked and has since retired.

    Jon was promoted to Special Inspector in 2012. Since joining the Force, he has contributed 4,000 voluntary hours.

    Jon said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed working as a Constable for Leicestershire Police and encourage other people to join the Specials as I have learnt a great deal since being within the Force. Becoming a Special provides a great opportunity to put something back into our society and I am honoured to be receiving this award.”

    The ceremony was attended by the Chief Constable Simon Cole, he said: “It is really important to acknowledge the loyalty, longevity and dedication officers and Special’s contribute to the Force.

    “It was great to hear today stories of the officers following in their fathers and grandfathers career footsteps. It was very rewarding to hear some of the highlights of each of the officers service as it truly reflects the range of interesting stories they have experienced while working for Leicestershire Police.

    “I am very proud of all those who received awards”

  • Police warning over gold chain snatches

    With the warmer weather approaching we are urging residents and visitors in the Belgrave area to cover their gold chains up so they don’t become a victim of crime.

    Last summer there were a number of chain snatch offences in the Belgrave area, with the offenders mainly targeting women who were often carrying shopping bags.

    The victims were often approached by youths on bikes who snatched the chains from around their necks, before cycling off.

    Neighbourhood officers are out on patrol in the area and are offering advice to people on covering up their chains and how to try and prevent themselves becoming a target.

    Sergeant Sarah Widdowson, from the local neighbourhood team said: “Over the next few weeks local officers will be speaking to as many people as possible to raise the awareness of this crime and to help stop people becoming victims. “We will be approaching members of the public and advising them that the best way they can protect themselves is to leave their jewellery at home and if they must wear it, keep it covered up.”

    You are being advised to:

    • be aware of your surroundings

    • if you feel unsafe change direction or go into a shop

    • use well lit, busy streets and a route you are familiar with

    • photograph all items of jewellery and register possessions for free on www.immobilise.com

    and if you are a victim of this crime report it immediately on 999.

  • Public invited to event to discuss community concerns

    An event for members of the public to discuss any policing and community issues is taking place in Market Bosworth this month.

    The event, which is taking place at Bosworth Hall Hotel, is open for anyone from Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland to attend but particularly for residents of Hinckley, Market Bosworth and the surrounding villages.

    It is part of the ‘What matters to you?’ public engagement events which give members of the public an opportunity to discuss issues with three key figures.

    Held every couple of months, this is the fifth event of its kind. Previous ones have been held in the city centre, Beaumont Leys, Coalville and Market Harborough.
