The City South comprises of the St Ann's, Mapperley, Clifton, Meadows and Sneinton and Dales areas. Whilst, each area is very different a number of overarching strategic priorities have been identified through analysis of crime, consultation with partners, the PCC crime survey and feedback from our community.
These priorities do not replace those local priorities raised at community meetings. The priorities are updated monthly and reviewed quarterly. The City South areas have such different demographics each area has its own issues and problems therefore in order to capture all the elements raised the priorities are deliberately non-specific to ensure they remain relevant to all.
We have executed numerous drug warrants across the area, but despite that drugs continues to be a priority as it is intrinsically linked with many other crimes and taking a strong approach to drugs impacts on other areas. Again, the neighbourhood policing teams have been working together with Op Reacher team to execute drugs warrants and carry out proactive patrols on the City South. The City South will carry on targeting drug offenders in the bid to hopefully send out a message that this kind of activity will not be tolerated.
Acquisitive crime is a priority due to the detrimental impact it has on its victims. so we will continue to positively deal with robbery, thefts, shop thefts, motor vehicle related offences and burglary. We will therefore carry on identifying these serial offenders, whilst focusing on 'hot spot' areas as early as possible to ensure we maximise opportunities of prosecutions, which ultimately leads to victims getting positive resolutions.
Having consulted with counsellors and key individuals in your communities, I have identified that a number of significant issues are taking place in your areas, that comes under the heading of antisocial Behaviour. You have told us that antisocial driving and speeding is a concern, as is intimidating and antisocial behaviour on and around the tram network. Given the broad nature of this heading it gives me and my team the opportunity to focus our efforts on particular areas in each of your communities and is why ASB will be a priority for the wards of City South for the next three months.
Our three priorities are there to ensure you feel and are safe why being in our area, we will continue to fight crime and listen to you and understand what is needed with you to make sure that you feel safe and improve your confidence in our ability to deal with your concerns, providing an excellent service, which we deliver with pride compassion and integrity.
