  1. Police have been refusing to investigate reported attemped burglaries at odd-numbered homes, it has emerged.The scheme, trialled by Leicestershire police, is now being considered in at least five other counties after it was said to have had no impact on crime rates or public satisfaction. The three-month, money-saving pilot was designed to assess the effectiveness of how the force deploys forensic officers to potential crime scenes. It follows the admittance by Sara Thornton, the head of the National Police Chiefs Council, that the public should no longer expect police officers to turn up at their door if they are burgled. Gavin Hales, deputy director of the Police Foundation, an independent think tank that evaluates policing, told The Times: "The notion of denying 50 per cent of victims a basic service, based on something as arbitrary as their house number, looks ethically dubious at best." During the trial, forensic police officers only visted people who reported an attempted burglary at properties with even numbers. Any scene involving a vulnerable victim or that was believed to be part of a series of crimes would be visited by forensic officers and all reports were investigated by a police officer. Leicestershire police said the policy had "no noticeable impact on victim satisfaction, and nor did it affect the overall ratio of scenes visited and suspects identified. The force confirmed that the East Midlands Special Operations Unit decided to test the scheme in Leicestershire but its results are now being evaluated and it may be brought in across its services in Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Northamptonshire too. Leicestershire Police said in a statement that new methods were needed "as a result of significant year-on-year cuts to policing budgets". Deputy Chief Constable Roger Bannister said: “The public would expect us to make the very best possible use of our time and limited resources to have the biggest impact on public safety and the prevention and detection of crime. “This pilot suggests that we may need to reconsider how best to deploy crime scene investigators, especially if we are currently sending them automatically to scenes where, despite their professionalism and expertise, there is no evidence for them to retrieve.” The scheme was introduced after analysis showed that forensic science officers had been deployed on a total of 1,172 attempted burglaries in the region but few scenes were found to contain any scientific evidence. Only 33 suspects were identified as a result of these visits. But Mr Hales added: "It risks being highly counterproductive, both in terms of public confidence but also successful prosecutions. Imagine, for example, a police force that finds the same tool marks at the scenes of five attempted burglaries, and then on the sixth occasion also finds a fingerprint that allows all six crimes to be solved. By ignoring half of the opportunities to collect forensic evidence, a police force would necessarily solve fewer crimes." http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/crime/11784254/Police-only-investigate-burglaries-at-even-numbered-homes.html

    Questions around Transferring

    Hi Guys, I'll try and keep this short and concise; I've been a special with WYP for around 4 months, however I'd also applied to Universities this year, and didn't get into my first choice (which is in West Yorkshire). On to the point, I got accepted into a Uni at Leicester, and as part of the uni-course they like you to become a special. Seeing as I am already one, what would the process for transferring from WYP to Leicestershire Police be like? I didn't ask this in the Leicestershire forum as it seems a bit dead, and this is more of a general question as Leicestershire don't seem to have any information at all on their website concerning transfers (please correct me If I'm wrong!). I'm not IPS, and I haven't done a great deal of competencies toward it, however as I said I have been attested 3-4 months now, so it's not like I'm still in training. I realise WYP probably aren't going to be too happy about me leaving so soon, but life just does this sometimes! Apologies for rambling, I've actually just come off a late shift so a little tired, my main question is-- how complicated would a transfer be, is it even possible at my stage, and would I need an interview etc again (even though I literally just came off training not so long ago). I understand I'll probably have to do some training, but I'm not so much looking at the finer details just how difficult the whole process might be, or whether it would be easier for me to 're-join'? If that's even possible, seems a bit odd attesting twice but there you go! Appreciate any help or guidance.
  3. Afternoon all, Bit of a reach out to see if anyone else is out there who applied to the above recruitment but didn't make the cut for this months intake. Has anyone heard anything recently re what Leics are planning to do? Cheers
  4. Is anyone starting as a regular with Leicestershire in April 2015?
