Man jailed for breach of Criminal Behaviour Order

Alert message sent 05/12/2021 17:29:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police


A man has been jailed after he ignored warnings and a court order by continuing to make nuisance calls to police.

Surjit Singh, 57, breached a criminal behaviour order, (CBO), which had been imposed by a court after he made a series of time-wasting calls to Leicestershire Police, often while under the influence of alcohol.
However, he continued to make calls and was arrested for breaching the order on 12 separate occasions between November 22 and 29.

Singh, of Victoria Road East in Northfields, Leicester, was arrested and put before Leicester Magistrates' Court on Tuesday, November 30, where he was sentenced to 24 weeks in custody.

Sgt Kevin Mistry, from the East Leicester police, said: “When Singh first began making calls, he was offered support through a number of agencies but refused to engage.

“Instead, we looked to apply for a CBO and one was granted with conditions not to contact the emergency services unless it was for a genuine purpose.

“Unfortunately, Singh ignored the order and continued making calls, placing a significant demand on our handlers.

"He was also abusive towards them and I’d like to thank them for their professionalism in dealing with the matter.

“Two officers - Pc Lorgat and Pc Greaves – were able to secure a charge of breaching a CBO.
