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.
Our priority from October to December that we are focussing on is anti-social behaviour (ASB). This has been agreed in conjunction with partner agencies. During the summer, we have seen an increase in anti-social behaviour on Vernon Park resulting in calls to the police. There will be an increased presence and we are liaising with the grounds keepers to tackle this behaviour. We have seen an increase in ASB around the Highbury Vale tram stop and on the trams themselves. We are continuing with operations to combat this in conjunction with NET trams who are supporting our operations and assisting with vital evidence capture. We will be having monthly meetings with our partners to ensure that we are patrolling the places experiencing the most ASB. We are also working with local schools and clubs to address any concerns which provides a multi-layered problem solving approach. We encourage any member of the public to report ASB to us on 101.

ASB - October 2023 to December 2023
The priority for Basford remains as reducing anti-social behaviour. We have seen a great success in this across the open spaces and the tram network. Our officers are continuing to patrol the open spaces and tram networks in conjunction with our partners. We have completed 2 operations so far in the last couple of months with NET trams to disrupt anti-social behaviour and assist with NET trams to enforce the ticket system. This has been a great success with fewer incidents being created.
We encourage everyone to report their concerns of anti-social behaviour to us on 101, we have a dedicated car every evening to respond to anti-social behaviour and noise complaints.
