Bassetlaw Neighbourhood Priorities agreed for the next three months (July 2020 to September 2020)

Priorities set by Inspector Neil Bellamy at the remotely conducted (due to Coronavirus and Covid-19 Pandemic) Local Policing Priority Setting (LPPS) meeting.

On this occasion, and due to the Health Emergency the relevant Survey has not been conducted by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, and as a consequence, and for this period only, in consultation with the Community Safety Coordinator, the priorities have remained the same.

In Bassetlaw we set Policing Priorities every three months. We now set 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 have remained the same as the last quarter and are as follows:

Drug use and dealing

Reckless & dangerous driving

Burglary

Speeding

Car Crime

The Priority Setting Meetings of East Bassetlaw have NOT taken place due to the National Health Emergency.

The priority for Worksop as identified by the Elected Leader of the Local Authority through the Community Safety Team remains the Town Centre specifically with regard to Anti-Social Behaviour relating to drug use and particularly visible in the times of reduced mobility of the population in this pandemic.

On 23rd March 2020 the UK was put on a Government ‘lockdown’ due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, and this has had a significant impact on crime, mainly a reduction.

I have reviewed the information available to me which shows that for Bassetlaw, recorded crimes for violence against the person, burglary, theft and criminal damage have all reduced significantly.

The Police and Crime Commissioners Survey was undertaken before the lockdown, but indicated that Drug Use and Dealing was of highest concern to those surveyed. 

The majority of concerns raised by the public through their local councillors relate to people breaching the Covid-19 Government Regulations. 

In light of all of the above information, and the current circumstances surrounding the Covid-19 Pandemic at this time the clear main concern from the public is Anti-Social Behaviour.

Our Policing Priority for the next three months will be to focus on the response to Covid-19 Related ASB, with the caveat that this will be reviewed before that time if there is a significant change (such as the Covid-19 restrictions being released).

I have reviewed the information available to me which shows that for Bassetlaw, recorded crimes for violence against the person, burglary, theft and criminal damage have all reduced significantly.

With regards to our previous priorities:

Drug offences are also down;

• Current month compared with previous month this year -21.4%

• Current month compared with same month last year -35.3%

Anti-Social Behaviour is one of a few areas that are showing an increase at +123.5% Year to Date and +135.7% in the last two weeks. The vast majority of this relates to the public reporting Covid-19 Breach related Anti-Social Behaviour.

The Police and Crime Commissioners Survey was undertaken before the lockdown, but indicated that Drug Use and Dealing was of highest concern to those surveyed. 

The majority of concerns raised by the public through their local councillors relate to people breaching the Covid-19 Government Regulations.
