    February 2018.

    Welcome to the Stoke on Trent South Local Policing Team, I am Chief Inspector Karen Stevenson, Commander for Stoke on Trent South Local Policing Team (LPT).

    The festive period always brings different challenges to policing. Within Stoke South LPT this is not necessarily directly related to the busy festive night time economy and increase in Christmas parties but more the fall out after such events. Sadly we always see an increase in domestic related offences in this period which takes up a high level of officers’ time to effectively resource with the right level of safeguarding.

    Retail thefts also increase in this period. Within the LPT we ran Operation Snowball which targeted such offences on the town centre and retail parks to provide high visibility reassurance patrols to the festive shoppers but also to deter any people intent on committing such offences.

    In the last quarter we had an increase in Burglary residential offences, this includes criminal damage to property and buildings. This was mainly due to one single protracted incident that caused a significant amount of damage to numerous houses in the Meir area back in October.

    Antisocial behaviour within the LPT is looking good, we are currently on a 3% reduction on our year to date figures showing 134 less offences in the last twelve months. This is down to the continuous focus that we give to this, each evening we allocate an ‘ASB’ patrol which is purely dedicated to attending such incidents ensuring that the appropriate follow up enquires and actions are completed. Partnership working continues in this area targeting known and repeat offenders using a variety of sanctions to effectively problem solve.

    We are in a strong position going into the next quarter of the year and I look forward to the new challenges that this will bring.

Visibility is calculated by the total number of hours officers spend out in the communities out in the streets, away from police stations.

    The visuals display the time officers spend visible in their communities.

    This data collection is from the officer’s personal handheld radio which sends an update every 5 minutes from booking on shift to booking off shift, so each reading received from the device is classed as 5 minutes visibility.

    Readings can only be taken when the officer is away from the Police Station as the areas are geo-fenced not to record updates when the officer is in the station.

    Standard policing duties where the officer is away from the Police Station such as being located at Custody Suites etc. are not counted in the visibility figures.
