Inspector Bill Knopp Police Update

EAVA FM's weekly police update on 24th January was done by Inspector Bill Knopp from Spinney Hill Park Police Station.

At the start of the interview Inspector Bill Knopp wanted to send a get well message to his colleague, Inspector Rick Basra who has Leukaemia. There were a series of events that took place where people could be tested to see if they were a match for a bone morrow transplant, they eventually found a match in Germany, where inspector Rick Basra as had the transplant and is resting at home.

These events helped to raise awareness in the South Asian community and all of us here at EAVA FM would like to say a big get well soon.

The latest news from the Police is that crime in Leicestershire area has fallen by 11.2%, with reduction in Burglary down by 16.2%. Saying that there was a string of burglaries within one night on the same road and some of the belongings stolen were jewellery, cash and electronics. Below are some tips on how you can keep your belongings safe:

Jewellery - Keep Asian gold in a safe secure place like the jewellers or a bank. Also keep photographs and remember marks or distinguishing features so that the police can tell whether the item is yours or not.

Cash - Don't keep large amounts of cash at home or on your person.

Electronics - If you go on to Google and type in Emobilise it will take you to the website you need where you can register your items so if they do go missing the police can look on there.
