Round up posted on Face­book page

Hinckley Times - - NEWS -

PO­LICE in Mar­ket Bosworth said they had a “crack­ing” 2018.

The force posted a round-up for the year on its Face­book page in­clud­ing a mon­tage video of pho­tos show­ing what they’ve been up to.

It said: “It’s been busy and al­though you may not have seen us - we’ve been there.

“Re­mem­ber - we cover a huge geo­graph­i­cal area - we es­ti­mate about 300 square miles.

“Agri­cul­tural premises to the Zoo with ev­ery­thing else in be­tween.”

Text in the video, whose sound­track was Carl Orff’s O For­tuna, said that the force re­ceives on av­er­age 500 calls a month.

This year of­fi­cers have dealt with in­clud­ing thefts and bur­glar­ies, RTCs, cross-borer op­er­a­tions and cannabis fac­tory seizures.

The force said in the post: “We hope you’ve had a great year too.

“As the end of the year ap­proaches - we urge you to:

“Fol­low the page for reg­u­lar up­dates about crime in your area.

“Call 101 or 999 in an emer­gency.

“Call CrimeStop­pers anony­mously on 0800 555 111. “Here’s to 2019. “We thank you for your sup­port.”
