Police: The Team
Birstall and Wanlip villages are served by the Birstall Neighbourhood Team or Beat Team as it is often called. They work out of the Police Office at 10 Sibson Road, Birstall, but this not a public office and is often not staffed.
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.
How to contact them:
- Always dial 101 to report a crime or 999 in an emergency.
You can leave a voicemail message for any of them by dialling 101 and following the instructions to leave a message for an officer. 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 at 10 Sibson Road (opposite the Garden Centre) on every third Saturday of the month between 10 a.m. and 12 noon.
- Stop to speak to them when you see them patrolling in our villages, 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 just an advice line that is answered only when there is somebody there to do so.
