Unfortunately during some festivals and events we see an increase in some types of crimes and other incidents so take extra care and precautions whilst celebrating.

Remember, should you experience any incidents always report them. If members of our local communities don’t report incidents, Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service, Leicestershire Police and our local councils are not aware of the issues. Don’t rely on others to report them, they may be doing the same. Sometimes, we also need additional support from more specialist services. If you require support, don’t hesitate to contact any of the specialist services as they take pride in helping people like you. Below you will find some useful tips, advice, contact numbers and website links to help you celebrate safely throughout the periods of joy and excitement.
