2017 has seen plenty of change for Nottinghamshire Police with a brand new Chief Officer Team arriving. Chief Constable Craig Guildford joining in February, new Deputy Chief Constable Rachel Barber in March and new Assistant Chief Constable Steve Cooper in April.

We've seen plenty of new faces throughout the force as we continued to recruit police officers and PCSOs and we announced plans to be an employer of choice for the foreseeable future.

The force was also listed as a top employer for a second year running in Stonewall's annual Workplace Equality Index.

Nottinghamshire Police supported many campaigns throughout 2017 including donating knives to the 'Save A Life' to help tackle knife crime and supported the public transport providers to say 'No To Hate' . We also pledged to make Nottinghamshire free from modern slavery on Anti-Slavery Day in October.

The past 12 months has seen staff and officers raising thousands for the chief's chosen charity Nottinghamshire Hospice, following on from an incredible effort to raise £5,000 for CLIC Sargent in 2016.

Our officers, staff and volunteers have been rewarded for their work throughout the year including Inspector Darren Sear who was presented with the Police Medal by HRH Princess Alexandra in May and more than 400 people attended the force's annual awards where long service and good conduct medals and awards was presented.

Other highlights include, Nottingham securing the Purple Flag accreditation for an eighth consecutive year, Notts Police taking the silver medal in the UK Corporate Games and the Notts Police Football Vets squad reaching the national police final.

We hope you have a fantastic end to the year, whether you’re staying in tonight or if you are 'out-out' with friends and family. Have an enjoyable and safe New Year's Eve.

Happy New Year!
