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.
Bassetlaw Neighbourhood Priorities agreed for the next three months (January 2022 to March 2022)
Issued 01 January 2022
Bassetlaw Neighbourhood Priorities agreed for the next three months (January 2022 to April 2022)
Priorities set by Inspector Neil Bellamy at the Local Policing Priority Setting (LPPS) meeting.
In Bassetlaw, we set Policing Priorities every three months.
We set priorities, based on various types of information received such as Crime and Disorder Surveys and calls received as well as survey data.
We continue to receive information from the Local Authority (Elected and Executive), County Councillors, Local Councillors and Bassetlaw Residents (utilising surgeries, priority-setting meetings and other engagement) about the issues and concerns in their area.
This enables me to consider as wide a range of information as possible for the priorities to be decided.
The priorities as identified by the Police and Crime Commissioners Survey for the residents of Bassetlaw are as follows:
Reckless & Dangerous Driving
Drug Use and Dealing
The priorities as identified by the Priority Setting Meetings of East Bassetlaw are as follows:
RETFORD – Drug Use and Supply, Anti-Social Behaviour & Vehicle Nuisance
The priority for WORKSOP as identified by the Elected Leader of the Local Authority remains the Town Centre specifically with regard to Anti-Social Behaviour relating to the homeless and their substance misuse and subsequent behaviour.
Vehicle related issues including reckless and dangerous driving, speeding and off-road use appear within a number of areas including both the towns and rural communities and as such is Priority 1 for Bassetlaw.
Antisocial Behaviour now appears in the Elected Leaders priorities and within the Town Centre at Worksop, per the Elected Leaders view, and at Retford and Harworth, per Local Councillors and residents feedback within the Priority Setting Meetings, and as such is Priority 2 for Bassetlaw.
Drug Use and Supply appear within a number of areas including both the towns and rural communities and as such is Priority 3 for Bassetlaw.
The Teams under my command are abundantly aware of the competing demands and priorities of all our communities in Bassetlaw and will work towards them in addition to those specifically identified.
