South Leicestershire MP, Alberto Costa, recently met with the new Leicestershire Police Area Commander for the Eastern Counties, Inspector Siobhan Gorman, to discuss crime in Lutterworth and the surrounding villages.
Inspector Gorman recently took over the new role from Inspector Gavin Drummond, and met with Mr Costa at his Blaby Constituency Office in order to discuss the concerns raised by his South Leicestershire constituents about the level of crime in the south of the county.
Alberto said, “I was very delighted to meet Inspector Gorman last week and to welcome her to her new role in looking after neighbourhood policing in Harborough District. My constituents have informed me of their concerns relating to a recent surge in crime in Lutterworth and the surrounding area, and I was very pleased to have the Inspector’s assurances that the Police will do all they can in order to tackle this”.
Alberto concluded, “This was a very productive and engaging meeting and I should like to thank Inspector Gorman for being so receptive to my constituent’s concerns. I understand that her excellent team will seek to carry out more high visibility patrols in the town and will be working to engage with the community and other stakeholders to provide reassurance to residents in Lutterworth and the surrounding villages. The Government’s new Police funding, announced last week, will provide Leicestershire Police with a very welcome £13 million boost which will better equip them to continue their brilliant work in tackling crime and protecting my constituents in South Leicestershire and as well as residents in the wider county”.
