Due to the current situation with the COVID-19 virus, the decision has been made that, until further notice, all planned Beat Surgeries and community engagements in the Charnwood area are cancelled. Please do not attend any events that you may have seen advertised, as Officers will not be present. We will obviously continue to attend Policing incidents as before, so if you need the Police to attend for any reason, please continue to contact us via the usual channels.
Our Beat Team
Birstall and Wanlip villages are served by the Birstall Dedicated Neighbourhood Team (or Beat Team as it is often called). They work out of the Police Office in the Robert Dickinson Building, 10 Sibson Road, Birstall, but this not a public office and is often not staffed.
How to contact them
Always dial 999 if somebody is in danger or a crime is in progress.
Dial 101 to report a crime discovered after the perpetrator is gone.
You can leave a voicemail message for one of the Team (or any other Officer) by dialling 101 and following the instructions on how to leave a message. When prompted, key in their identification number given above.
One of them is usually in attendance at the monthly Beat Surgery held alongside our Advice Shop in the Robert Dickinson Building, 10 Sibson Road on every third Saturday of the month between 10 a.m. and 12 noon.
They also hold regular Beat Surgeries throughout the month at other locations. These are advertised in our Newsletter.
Stop to speak to them when you see them patrolling, they are all very approachable.
You can dial 0116 267 7355 to check whether anybody is available at the Police Office but, please remember, this is only answered when there is somebody there to do so.
