The next Glenwatch meeting will be on Tuesday 6th August 2019 at Park House starting at 7.15pm. All residents of Glenfield are welcome to attend whether involved with Glenwatch or not.

Over the last 15 years Glenfield Parish Council has kindly provided Glenwatch with a grant which enabled us to provide various services and activities for the residents of Glenfield. At the March Parish Council meeting this grant was reduced by 83% which as a result means that Glenwatch will have to significantly reduce its activities.

With immediate effect, the Glenwatch telephone hotline has been disconnected - the public can still ring the police on 101 for non emergencies and 999 for emergencies. Residents wishing to report incidents, anonymous reporting, seek crime prevention advice, or just want someone to talk to, will now need to contact us by email, see the tab above. This website will continue to be updated in the short term, and our facebook page will be the main source of crime information.

 

The minutes from the meeting on Tuesday 4th June 2019 can be found here

Leicestershire Police is supporting a new website that aims to quickly answer non-emergency questions and free up staff to concentrate on urgent and more complicated calls.The ‘Ask The Police’ website, which is also available as an app for smart phones, holds answers to around 750 questions, on the subject of things such as stray dogs and noisy neighbours, that the police are most frequently asked by the public through 101 or 999. The website is part of a national initiative that will assist the public to find solutions to everyday problems that can affect the quality of their lives.

The service is an easy-to-navigate website www.askthe.police.uk which is bespoke to Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland and offers a range of answers and useful contacts. The website, which is free to use, will release precious time in police call centres and police stations – enabling staff to concentrate on urgent and more complicated calls from the public.

 

Shedsafe SecurityWith summer here this is a great time for thieves if we leave our sheds unlocked. Lawn mowers, hedge trimmers, garden tools are all easy to steal.

To combat these crimes, Glenwatch has partnered with one of the UK’s top security companies, Shedsafe, to enable Glenfield residents to buy the award winning product Shedsafe Secure Door Bar for £10 less than the normal price, so £39.99 instead of £49.99.
