PREVENT (Preventing Violent Extremism)

The Prevent programme is managed by the council's Community Safety Team and has been developed in response to the Counter Terrorism and Security Act (2015) and the Government's Prevent Strategy - a national counter extremism programme aimed at stopping people from becoming violent extremists or supporting extremism, both violent and non-violent.

The Prevent Strategy is aimed at preventing violent and non-violent extremism, but is also very much about protecting our communities and supporting vulnerable people who may be targeted by extremists trying to recruit or radicalise them. There is no single profile of a person who may be vulnerable to grooming by extremists, and the Prevent programme relies on community support and information to identify and safeguard people.

If you are concerned that someone you know, or have come across, is at risk of being exploited for extremist purposes, you should inform the Local Authority or the Police who will assess the individual and provide them with appropriate support if they are at risk. More information about PREVENT and details of who to contact are on their website http://lrsb.org.uk/prevent

New Police Station in Coalville

Building work to construct a new police station in Coalville will start in March 2017. Leicestershire Police and Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service have agreed to share the fire station in Coalville. This follows a period of consultation with the community and partners about the best options for the existing police station, as it needs millions of pounds worth of investment to refurbish it and currently costs 125,000 of public money every year to run. This should take seven months, aiming to be moving in around October or November. The Police will continue to have enquiry facilities located at the reception desk at North West Leicestershire District Council, in Whitwick Road, Coalville.
