  • Leicestershire Police hosts celebratory event for its 180th anniversary

    Four hundred and fifty guests came together last night to celebrate 180 Years of policing in Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland at a commemorative service held at Leicester Cathedral.

    The service featured a number of hymns, prayers and readings by Retired Chief Superintendent David Baker and one of the force's newest recruits PC Lindsay Hicken. A roll of honour remembering fallen officers was read by members of the force's muslim, christian and sikh associations while Lord Lieutenant Lady Gretton laid a wreath at the police plaque.

    After the service 84 cadets performed a guard of honour from the Cathedral to the Guildhall, where Chief Constable Simon Cole and Police & Crime Commissioner Sir Clive Loader reflected on the history of policing, and how it has evolved throughout the years.

    On display were hundreds of photos and items of police memorabilia that had been loaned to Leicestershire Police by staff, officers and members of the public following an appeal earlier in the year.

    There were also a number of display boards showing the timeline of the force's 180 years along with photo boards with pictures of dogs, uniforms, transport and police stations throughout the ages. The boards will be available for public viewing in the Guildhall for the next three weeks, and will then be touring exhibition spaces, libraries and galleries around the county for the remainder of the year.

    Chief Constable Cole said: "I have really enjoyed celebrating our fantastic history with so many people tonight and I would like to thank everyone who has helped to make it a success."

    A celebratory booklet covering the force’s history was handed out to guests. You can view a copy here (PDF 14MB)

  • What Matters To You - Ibstock

    This is an excellent opportunity for you to speak to two of the key figures within Leicestershire Police about policing and community issues that matter to you in an informal setting.

    The session will run from 10.00am until 12 mid-day.

  • Closure of Welford Road Police Station

    Welford Road Police Station in Leicester is to close on Monday 14 March 2016.

    In making this decision the force has taken into account the very low numbers of people using the front enquiry service; the fact that much of the building is now empty; the high maintenance costs and the fact that Wigston Police Station is less than three miles away and Euston Street is less than a mile away.

    Leicestershire Police’s estate is under constant review to ensure its buildings remain fit for purpose and represents an efficient and effective use of taxpayers money.

    Leicestershire Police is however committed to being based in the heart of communities and the closure does not mean there will be less officers in the area. The local policing presence will remain the same. Officers will continue to use the eight neighbourhood offices that are based in community centres across the area patrolling and working as they do now.

    Police officers and PCSOs now have access to mobile technology, which allows them to be more flexible, accessible and visible in the community, without the need to be located in traditional police stations. Nowadays, members of the public can book an appointment to see their neighbourhood officer; they can email them; talk to them in the street or ring 101 and leave a message on their voicemail or engage with them on social media.

    There are also a series of beat surgeries being held across the area for local people to drop in and talk to members of their beat team. To find out where and when they are, logon to the local policing pages of the website at and type in your postcode. This will take you to your neighbourhood pages and the latest up to date beat surgery information.

  • Volunteer police cadets fulfill pledge to double membership to 10,000 young people

    The National Volunteer Police Cadet (VPC) Programme has achieved its target to double its number of members four years ahead of target.

    The programme pledged to support police forces across the country to increase the number of cadets to 10,000 by the year 2020. The pledge was made at Buckingham Palace in 2013 as part of the #IWill Campaign.

    Leicestershire’s VPC Programme welcomed 185 recruits in October 2015, increasing its ranks from 35 young people following an external recruitment campaign in June 2015.

    VPC Lead, Sergeant 173 Danny Graham, said: “The VPC programme works in Leicestershire as we have a committed figurehead, Superintendent Martyn Ball, who champions the worth of cadets and their integration in the force. We’re also lucky to have the support from the wider senior management team who are more than willing to get involved with the cadets and recognise them for going above and beyond what is expected of them.

    “We wouldn’t have been able to do this without the relationships we have built with schools and colleges as well as our good relationship with the national VPC programme and regional colleagues.”

    The campaign aims to get more young people involved in social action, and with support of police forces and grants from the Youth United Foundation, the pledge has been achieved in just over two years.

    The key aims of the VPC programme are to involve a diverse group of young people and equip them with the skills to lead positive lifestyles. Membership across the country stands at 32% of cadets from black and minority ethnic backgrounds. Each cadet unit is also expected to have at least 25% of their members from crime-vulnerable backgrounds who have the support of peer role models.

    A number of forces across the UK, including Leicestershire, have seen rapid expansion of their programmes in the last few years; Police Scotland, Greater Manchester, Lancashire and London.

    Chief Constable for Devon and Cornwall Police Shaun Sawyer, the National Police Chief Council Lead, said: “As we see this amazing growth in Volunteer Police Cadet numbers across the country, I am confident that for the first time, the UK police service has a recognised and consistent programme of volunteer police cadets.”

    Ed Sherry, the National VPC Programme Director, said: “This expansion of cadet numbers has been overseen by a small dedicated national team supported by grants from the Youth United Foundation. We believe, that with the correct infrastructure, membership could increase to 28,000 cadets. As each cadet is expected to volunteer three hours every month, it would see the young people volunteering over one million hours every year in support of their communities.”

    Recruitment for Leicestershire’s VPC programme will be opening in the Spring. For more information about the programme, visit the VPC section of our website.

  • Celebrating 180 years of being part of your community

    This year Leicestershire Police is celebrating 180 years of serving the communities of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

    During 2016 the force will be marking this historic occasion in a number of ways; including undertaking 180 charitable acts and displaying boards on the history of policing in Leicestershire to local communities.

    The Chief Constable Simon Cole visited Welford Road Cemetery this morning (Thursday 11 February) to pay his respects at the grave side of the first ever ‘Head Constable’ for Leicester Borough Police, Frederick Goodyer. This evening a ceremony will be held at Leicester Cathedral to commemorate those who have died or been killed in service.

    The force has grown significantly in size over three centuries. On 11 February 1836 the Head Constable Frederick Goodyer took command of five sergeants and 45 constables in the new police station in the Old Town Hall, now known as the Guildhall. Today, Leicestershire Police’s Chief Constable Simon Cole leads a force of 1860 police officers, 220 police community support officers, 1200 members of staff, 236 specials, 229 volunteers and 182 cadets.

    As one would expect, a lot has changed throughout 180 years. The force has witnessed multiple milestones such as the introduction of rural police stations, the use of police vehicles, and women being allowed to police. It is unlikely that Frederick Goodyer and his force would recognise today’s police constable, his or her uniform, their equipment and the use of information technology. Although, despite these changes the ethos of policing has remained the same, and the current force strives to follow the same guidelines as the 1836 force.

    Sir Robert Peel introduced the Metropolitan Police Improvement Bill in 1829, outlining that the police should;

    ‘Maintain at all times a relationship with the public that gives reality to the historic tradition that the police are the public and that the public are the police, the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full-time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence.’

    It is impossible to imagine what policing will look like in a further 180 years but the force hopes that the ethos of policing won’t change even in 2196.

    Post your memories about us on Facebook and Twitter and we will share your stories and facts about the last 180 years of policing in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. #LP180
