Your local policing team is made up of dedicated neighbourhood officers and community support officers based in your community, supported by additional officers from the wider area.
We work closely with our partners and engage the community when deciding our policing priorities for your area. By working together we aim to find solutions to longstanding local problems while maintaining our wider focus on preventing crime and antisocial behaviour across Nottinghamshire.
It is now time to renew the local policing priorities. Having reviewed police incidents, engaged with residents via social media and requested priorities from elected members I have decided the priorities will remain
1. Anti-Social Behaviour
2. Drug use and drug dealing
3. Driving offences (fatal 4) and nuisance motorbikesI will provide updates on each of these within our social media channels and my monthly blog.

Ashfield Policing Priorities Jan - Mar 2022
Issued 01 January 2022
Following consultation with our partners, reviewing communications with the public, and reviewing various data, the following have being set as the Ashfield Policing Priorities for the first quarter of 2022:Reduce drug supply and dealingDrugs are a cause for a ;large amount of crime and violence. As such their supply significantly impacts the lives of residents in Ashfield. To tackle this issue we will:Carry out overt and covert policing operationsConduct stop search operationsDevelop and build an intelligence picture to better target those responsibleWork with partners to explore all opportunities for disrupting and deterring drug dealingReduce Dangerous and Reckless Driving Across the district we have several reports from various sources that vehicles are being driven recklessly and dangerously, and the potential risk to public safety. This includes off road bikes, E-bikes and scooters as well as traditional motor vehicles. As December approaches, historically there is an additional likelihood of drink and drug driving causing further risk. To tackle this we will:Conduct regular FATAL4 OperationsArrange for Road Policing support across the districtCarry out public awareness campaignsSeize vehicles where appropriateReduce Vulnerability and Exploitation through Drug and Alcohol Dependency Reliance on, or excessive use of, drugs or alcohol can cause rise in vulnerability and exploitations. This of course puts the public at risk, and as Halloween, Bonfire night and Christmas arrive in this quarter, alcohol and drug use is likely to increase. We will: Provide targeted support to those most at riskWork with partners to ensure appropriate support is providedEnforce on any activity likely to cause risk of exploitations of vulnerability
