Bassetlaw Neighbourhood Priorities agreed for the next three
months (October 2019 to January 2020)

Priorities set by Inspector Neil Bellamy at the Local
Policing Priority Setting (LPPS) meeting.

In Bassetlaw we set Policing Priorities every three months
and this process has changed this month and it will now be known as Local Police Priority Setting (LPPS). We will now set 3 priorities, based on various
types of information received such as Crime and Disorder Surveys and calls
received.

We continue to receive information from the Local Authority
(Elected and Executive), County Councillors, Local Councillors and Bassetlaw
Residents (utilising surgeries 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 Office of the Police and
Crime Commissioner for the residents of Bassetlaw are as follows:

Drug use and dealing

Reckless & dangerous driving

Burglary

Car Crime

Speeding

The priorities as identified by the Priority Setting
Meetings of East Bassetlaw are as follows:

RETFORD – 1.DRUGS, 2.SPEEDING, 3.ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR

RURALS – 1.SPEEDING, 2.RURAL CRIME (POACHING/OFF ROAD
BIKES), 3.BURGLARY

HARWORTH – 1.ASB, 2.DRUGS, 3.OFF ROAD 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 drug use.

Illicit drugs and their illegal sale, use, and their
resultant behaviour appear within a number of areas and as such will be
regarded as Priority 1 for Bassetlaw.

Vehicle related issues including reckless and dangerous
driving, speeding and off-road use appear within a number of areas and as such
will be regarded as Priority 2 for
Bassetlaw
.

Antisocial Behaviour while not appearing within
the OPCC priorities does appear on East Bassetlaw areas, and within the Town
Centre at Worksop and therefore within a number of areas and as such will be regarded
as Priority 3 for Bassetlaw.
