City Central Priorities: July - Sept 2021

Share by emailShare by email
Date: 
July 2021

I have continued to work with our partners to understand and
define specific 'Local Policing Priorities' that effect and concern the
community. These priorities do not replace those agreed at the NAT meetings,
nor those defined through the respect survey; in fact this reinforces and
compliments them.

The meeting to discuss these priorities is held every 3
months, and is attended by Local Neighbourhood Development officers, Police,
and City Council Community Protection Team to look at data provided by the
Nottinghamshire Police Crime Commissioners Office, following perception surveys
they conduct of the area around gaining local community concerns.

However, due to the recent Pandemic with Covid 19, the
current priorities have been drawn from local statistical data, knowledge and
partnership working. We discuss, local community feedback provided to us by the
Neighbourhood Development officers, which allows us to be more informed.

The 3 agreed Priorities for the next 3 months, July -
September 2021 :-

1) Serious Violent Crime

2) ASB and drugs

3) Acquisitive Crime

June update (June 20 - June 21 crime data):

1. Serious violent crime

Victim based crime year to date is down 10.2% from the
previous 12 months and down 20.7% from the same period before the pandemic.
Violence with injury is also down 9.8% but we have seen an increase of 7.6% of
violence without injury offences. 

Robbery has reduced 17.2% in the last 12 months and remains
33.6% lower than the same period before the pandemic.

2. Acquisitive crime

Burglary year to date is down 39.2%, vehicle offences are
down 43.3% and bicycle theft is down 30.9%. We have a number of police operations
in place in order to see these crime reductions continue. 

3. Drugs/ASB

Drugs offences are down -7.3%. Drug offences are recorded
when we have proactively recovered drugs off the streets. We have successfully
conducted a number of drug misuse warrants in the area and will continue to
enforce on those who choose to use or supply drugs on the area.

ASB has seen an increase of 25.1%. Covid breaches are also
recorded within ASB. A number of operations for ASB hotspots are in place to
reduce the impact on the community. This is a decrease of over 30% from my last
quarters update which shows significant improvement in the rise.

October 2020

Every three months the local priorities that matter to the community are reviewed. Over the last quarterly period the priories were taken forward from previous months due to the complications and challenges we face with the Coronavirus pandemic. I have set the following priorities over the next three months –

1) Serious Violent Crime2) Acquisitive Crime3) Drugs and ASB

Previously number 2 was burglary. I have changed this to acquisitive crime so it not only includes burglary but also car crime and cycle theft which we have seen on the area. .

​We have seen a decrease of crimes on all of the wards in the area. Whilst this is excellent news the pandemic has certainly played a part in this. An increase we have seen across the wards has been ASB incidents. This has been an increase we have seen force wide due to the Coronavirus pandemic. I have been successful in obtaining extra resources to deal with this and we have taken robust action against the perpetrators on the area which has been heavily publicised. I have utilised dispersal powers across the whole area in response to significant issues. ​

Local Policing Priority Setting (LPPS)

Since July 2020, during the current Covid pandemic we have
seen an increase in ASB. Fortunately, crime overall is down which is fantastic
news. The rise in ASB whilst concerning, has been in the wake of the easing of
lockdown rules and 'pop' up parties. However, in all cases we have responded
positively to ensure a safe, secure environment is maintained, despite our
stretched staff working tirelessly. 

In the main, I have initiated dispersal powers, worked
with our partners and NGO's to tackle early signs of ‘pop up parties’ and
intelligence of any proposed parties or gatherings causing alarm and possible guideline
breaches.

Our partners have assisted us in reinforcing our 'Local
Policing Priorities' that effect and concern the community. These priorities do
not replace those agreed at the NAT meetings, nor those defined through the
respect survey, in fact this reinforces and compliments them.

Every three months sees a renewing of the three priorities
we should have each quarter, we have focussed on what matters to our
communities, we agreed to set and review the top 3 main priorities. The meeting
to discuss these priorities is held every 3 months, and is attended by Local
Neighbourhood Development officers, Police, Nottingham City Council Anti-Social
Behaviour Principle officer, also the Community Protection Team, to look at
data provided by the Nottinghamshire Police Crime Commissioners Office,
following perception surveys they conduct of the area around gaining local
community concerns.

However, due to the recent Pandemic with Covid 19, the
current priorities have been drawn from local statistical data, knowledge and
partnership working. 

I have purposely and holistically looked to include those
priorities concerning our community, these do NOT detract from other priorities
such as begging, Auto crime and Thefts and several others including nuisance
and littering. 

We discuss, local community feedback provided to us by the
Neighbourhood Development officers, which allows us to be more informed.

The 3 agreed Priorities for the next 3 months July to Sept
2020:-

1.
Serious Violent Crime: (GBH, Robbery, Knife Crime).
Op LUMINATION, Op SCORPION, Op EMBODY.

2.
Burglary Dwelling: Op NAPPE,

Op
UNIVERSAL.

3.
Drugs and ASB:

Op LUMINATION, Op NAVARASSE.

Op’s Lumination = Open Space Violence – Arboretum. Op
Scorpion – Knife Crime. Op Embody – Drugs. Op Nappe – Burglary – Arboretum. Op
Universal – Student Burglary & ASB. Op Nevarasse – Street Begging.

July 2020 update

1. Serious Violent Crime: (GBH, Robbery, Knife Crime). 

* Victim based crime is down by -26 offences month to date
(compared with the same month last year) which is a -19.2% change.* Robbery is only
up by 1 offence offence this month to date (compared with the same month last
year).* Possession of weapons is up by +2 offences month to date (compared with
the same month last year). This is where we have actively stopped offences and
recovered knives or sharp implements. 

We currently have Operation BION (Covid 19 - Reassurance
Patrols)  are keen to ensure our
additional patrols; both Plain clothes and high visibility continue in addition
to Proactive Operations in the area i.e Op LUMINATION, Op SCORPION, Op EMBODY.

2. Burglary Dwelling: 

Burglary is up by -1 offences month to date (compared with
the same month last year) which is a -33% change. We have had some good arrests
recently and are continuing our focus around crime prevention advice, as a
large proportion of offences could be avoided as they tend to be entries to
homes left insecure, either the front door or windows and items left on
display. Operation Op NAPPE, Op UNIVERSAL is continuing to combat Burglary
offences. 

3. Drugs / ASB: 

* Drugs offences, (possession and trafficking) is +2
offences month to date (compared with the same month last year) which is a +25%
change. That said, what this means is we have stopped and confiscated people
either using or involved in drugs offences, thereby reducing its use or
distribution. Op LUMINATION, Op NAVARASSE are operations used to prevent such
offences. 

ASB has seen a slight increase with +32 offences month to
date (compared with the same month last year) which is a +64% change. Whilst
this is noted, I am aware that the lockdown around Covid 19 has meant people
venturing out unnecessarily and congregating has contributed to additional
reports. 

Covid
19 Virus and its Impact

The picture locally has been well received with the
majority of people sticking to the Government guidelines to stay home, keep
people safe and save lives.

We have been patrolling our local community to provide
reassurance, whilst ensuring compliance with social distancing. Operation BION
is the operation name we are using as part of our local patrolling strategy. We
have had to respond to persons gathering on local streets and parks and have
challenged them where necessary to find them not sticking to the guidelines.

You will have seen the government power for Police forces
to issue on the spot fines for such breaches. Only where necessary and
exercising caution, and exhausting the 4 E's of:-

1) Engage

2) Explain

3) Encourage

4) Enforce.

We have had to issue a small number of fines for
persistent persons. I know the current climate is unprecedented, we are all in
this together and we want to work with everyone to make it a safe place for
everyone.

On a daily basis I review incidents, locations and any
trends which allow me to deploy staff to respond appropriately. In general,
Crime and Disorder is down which is really good to see. However, due to people
not following the social distancing rules and not necessarily exercising in
parks and locations, we have seen a small rise in ASB incidents. My staff as
part of Op BION, responds to all of these and we have additional patrols lined
up for any repeat locations.

So far this month has seen some good reductions around the
three LPPS priorities, but we are not complacent and continue to work hard in
your areas.

April update

We are now into our seventh month since we launched the LPPS meeting with my Neighbourhood Development officers and partners to discuss our three Policing Priorities for the areas. During April, due to the 'lockdown' I have looked at statistics for the previous three months and also speaking to my officers and partners as to the current trends and local issues. Based on this, I have agreed the following:

1. Serious Violent Crime: (GBH, Robbery, Knife Crime).

* Victim based crime is down by -35 offences month to date (compared with the same month last year) which is a -43.8% change.* Robbery is down by 4 offence this month to date (compared with the same month last year) which is a -400% change.* Possession of weapons is the same as 1 offences month to date (compared with the same month last year) which is a 47% change. This is where we have actively stopped offences and recovered knives or sharp implements.

We currently have Operation BION (Covid 19 - Reassurance Patrols)  are keen to ensure our additional patrols; both Plain clothes and high visibility continue in addition to Proactive Operations in the area i.e Op LUMINATION, Op SCORPION, Op EMBODY.

2. Burglary Dwelling:

We have had some good arrests recently and are continuing our focus around crime prevention advice, as a large proportion of offences could be avoided as they tend to be entries to homes left insecure, either the front door or windows and items left on display. Operation Op NAPPE, Op UNIVERSAL is continuing to combat Burglary offences.

3. Drugs / ASB:

* Drugs offences, (possession and trafficking) is -1 offences month to date (compared with the same month last year) which is a -50% change. That said, what this means is we have stopped and confiscated people either using or involved in drugs offences, thereby reducing its use or distribution. Op LUMINATION, Op NAVARASSE are operations used to prevent such offences.

ASB has seen a slight increase with +34 offences month to date (compared with the same month last year) which is a +97.1% change. Whilst this is noted, I am aware that the lockdown around Covid 19 has meant people venturing out unnecessarily and congregating has contributed to additional reports.

Berridge Ward Strategic Priorities: October 2019

Share by emailShare by email
Date: 
October 2019

October 2019

The Berridge Ward has seen a good decrease of just over 9% in reported crime over the last three months. We have seen good reductions in vehicle crime of over 35% but there have been four more robberies and 18 more burglaries. A more than 66% increase in recorded drug offences shows the level to which we have been proactively dealing with this type of offence as that kind of increase only comes about from finding and seizing drugs from people and property.

The Neighbourhood Policing Team are working hard to reduce crime and the fear of crime in the area. Officers will continue to patrol in high visibility uniform and plain clothes, conduct operations, execute warrants and seek to problem solve any local issues or emerging trends; thankfully there are none to date.

With our key partners and community, our local priorities are:

  1. Serious Violent Crime

  2. Burglary Dwelling

  3. Drugs / Knife Crime

As a partnership we will be working hard to ensure reductions in these areas.

In addition, with our partners we are working on tackling antisocial behaviour (ASB) on
several fronts, namely:

1. Drug taking

2. Rubbish and littering

3. Rowdy / Drunken behaviour

4. Fly tipping

The last three months has seen a 3% reduction in reported ASB. Nonetheless we continue to focus on enforcement, dispersal of youths and working with our Community Protection colleagues invoking warning and dispersal notices. There are no single patters or trends emerging to cause alarm, this is reassuring to know so we don’t have any undue crime patterns which are adversely affecting the community. However, due to stepping up our Police and Community Protection visibility, we have had good feedback from the community in reassuring everyone, whilst taking a ‘Zero Tolerance’ approach to offending behaviour; we will always take positive action.

The Berridge Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) will contact every victim of burglary, follow up vehicle offences and ASB to reassure you, offer advice and maximise the amount of evidence that can be gained by completing house-to-house and CCTV enquiries.

Please note your local NPT will still be proactively dealing with priorities identified at
the local neighbourhood level.

In order to further reduce burglary, vehicle offences, violent crime and ASB on the Berridge
Ward we have:

• Operation LUMINATION – a proactive team of one sergeant and three police officers
tackling street based crime, violence and ASB.

• Operation SCORPION – an initiative using high visibility and plain clothed officers to
tackle knife related incidents using a wide range of tactics to make the area
safe.

• Police detectives to review all burglary and serious violent crime investigations.

• Target those criminals who are actively committing crime on our area. For example, any
individual who has historically committed these crimes on our area but is
currently wanted for an unrelated offence will be prioritised for arrest.

• Use social media and face-to-face communication to educate and inform the public
regarding crime prevention.

• Use intelligence led policing techniques to prioritise our policing activities.

We will always support victims of crime to ensure a prosecution where the evidence exists, but
there are things that we ask the public to do to help us prevent incidents:

1. Keep doors and windows locked at night. Try not to put expensive electrical items on
display near open windows. Leave a light on in the property when you go out,
set the burglar alarm if you have one, and if not consider fitting one. It’s
best to have home insurance. 

2. Be cautious, NOT alarmed, when walking alone and report any suspicious activity.
Keep you and your possessions safe at all times.

3. Keep vehicle doors locked and secure. Try not to leave items on display such as
cash, phones, and other valuables. Park your vehicles courteously and in
well-lit areas.  Vehicles are sometimes vandalised over inconsiderate
parking.

4. Bin fires are quite common.  This said, you can help us by only putting your
bins on the street on the morning of your scheduled collection and putting them
away again as quickly as possible.

5. Do not over fill your bin.

6. Do not leave bulky waste out.  This can be used to cause damage and is a
target for arson.  Make use of the Council’s bulky waste collection
service which is a free service and can be arranged on 0115 915 2000.

7. Report fly-tips or suspicious behaviour so that the Council and Police can react appropriately. 
Call 101 or in an emergency 999.  Alternatively report anonymously through
Crime stoppers on 0800 555111.

8. Report to the Council any walls, street lamps etc that require repairing.  It may
not be the Council’s responsibility to repair a wall but they will liaise with
the owner.  Damaged walls provide ammunition to damage property.

9. Talk to your children and make sure they value other people’s property.

October 2019 update - Overview for City Central Neighbourhood as a Whole

The 3 agreed Priorities

1. Serious Violent Crime: (GBH, Robbery, Knife Crime).

• Victim based crime is down by -93 offences month to date (compared with the same month last year) which is a -17.9% change.

• Robbery is down by -11 offences month to date (compared with the same month last year) which is a -68.8% change.

• Possession of weapons is down by -2 offences month to date (compared with the same month last year) which is a -16.7% change.

We are keen to ensure our additional patrols, both Plain clothes and high visibility continue in addition to Proactive Operations in the area i.e Op LUMINATION, Op SCORPION, Op EMBODY.

2. Burglary Dwelling:

• Burglary is slightly up by +2 offences month to date (compared with the same month last year) which is a +4.2% change.We have had some good arrests recently and are continuing our focus around crime prevention advice, as a large proportion of offences could be avoided as they tend to be entries to homes left insecure, either the front door or windows and items left on display. Operation Op NAPPE, Op UNIVERSAL are continuing to combat Burglary offences.

3. Drugs / Knife Crime:

• Drugs offences, (possession and trafficking) are +4 offences month to date (compared with the same month last year) which is a +80% change.

That said, what this means is we have stopped and confiscated people either using or involved in drugs offences, thereby reducing its use or distribution. Op LUMINATION, Op NAVARASSE are operations used to prevent such offences. So far this month has seen some good reductions around the three LPPS priorities, but we are not complacent and continue to work hard in your areas.

Op’s Lumination = Open Space Violence – Arboretum. Op Scorpion – Knife Crime. Op Embody – Drugs. Op Nappe – Burglary – Arboretum. Op Universal – Student Burglary & ASB. Op Nevarasse – Street Begging.

Officers have been working on Operation NAPPE (burglary) and Operation LUMINATION (open space offences)throughout the last few months targeting high visibility patrols to tackle burglary and ASB.

The Street Offences Team have conducted uniform and plain-clothed patrols targeting burglary, drug, antisocial and vehicle offending. They have made some significant arrests, executed warrants and recovered stolen property and drugs as well as seizingillegal vehicles and property.

Berridge Ward Strategic Priorities: July 2019

Share by emailShare by email
Date: 
July 2019

The Berridge Ward has seen a slight increase of 17% in reported crime over the last three months. However, we have seen some good reductions in serious acquisitive crime such as, a 25% reduction in burglary dwelling offences, 43% reduction in Robbery and a 22% reduction in auto crime. PCSO Thomas has continued working with local schools in the area and engaging with pupils.

The Neighbourhood Policing Team are continually working to reduce crime and the fear of crime in the area. We will continue to provide high visibility and plain clothes patrols, conduct operations and seek to problem solve any local issues or trends emerging; thankfully there are none to date. 

With our key partners and community, we have concentrated on working hard to ensure further reductions in the two identified Crime Priorities:

1. Residential Burglary

2. Vehicle offences

Following meetings with our Partners, we are also working on tackling antisocial behaviour (ASB) on several fronts, namely:

1. Rubish and littering

2. Intimidation from youth gathering

3. Fly tipping

Further good reductions in Criminal Damage, ASB also down 23.5% demonstrate some good work to reassure and work towards making Berridge a safe place to live, visit and work.  There are no single patters or trends emerging to cause alarm, this is reassuring to know so we don’t have any undue crime patterns which are adversely affecting the community. However, due to stepping up our Police and Community Protection visibility, we have had good feedback from the community in reassuring everyone, whilst taking a ‘Zero Tolerance’ approach to offending behaviour; we will always take positive action.

The Berridge Neighbourhood Policing Team will contact every victim of Burglary, follow up Vehicle offences and ASB to reassure you, offer advice and maximise the amount of evidence that can be gained by completing House to House and CCTV enquiries.Please note your local Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) will still be proactively dealing with priorities identified at the local neighbourhood level.

In order to further reduce Burglary and Vehicle offences and Violent Crime and ASB on the Berridge Ward we have

• Operation LUMINATION – a targeted Policing Proactive team of one Sergeant and three Police officers tackling street based crime, violence and ASB. We will concentrate on targeting repeat locations, albeit, Burglary is down and offences have reduced.

• Operation SCORPION – is high visibility and plain clothes officers tackling sale and possession of Knife related incidents to make the area safe, taking enforcement and Zero tolerance inititives.

• Police detectives to review all Burglary and serious violent crime investigations.

• Target those criminals who are actively committing these crime types on our area. For example, any individual who has historically committed these crimes on our area but is currently wanted for an unrelated offence will be prioritised for arrest.

• Use social media and face-to-face communication to educate and inform the public regarding crime prevention.

• Prioritise intelligence ensuring that anything that is ‘Burglary, Violence or Vehicle crime’

We will support the victim to ensure a prosecution where the evidence exists, but there are things that we can ask the public to do to help us prevent incidents.

1. Keep doors and windows locked at night. Try not to put expensive electrical items on display near open windows. Leave a light on in the property when you go out, set the burglar alarm if you have one, and if not consider fitting one. It’s best to have Home insurance.

2. Be cautious, NOT alarmed, when walking alone and report any suspicious activity. Keep yourself safe and your possessions at all times.

3. Keep vehicle doors locked and secure, try not to leave items on display such as cash, phones, and other valuables. Park your vehicles courteously and in well-lit areas.  Vehicles are sometimes vandalised over inconsiderate parking.

4. Bin fires are quite common.  This said, you can help us by only putting your bins on the street on the morning of your scheduled collection and putting them away again as quickly as possible.

5. Do not over fill your bin.

6. Do not leave bulky waste out.  This can be used to cause damage and is a target for arson.  Make use of the Council’s bulky waste collection service which is a free service and can be arranged on                  0115 915 2000.

7. Report fly tips or suspicious behaviour so that the Council and Police can react appropriately.  Call 101 or in an emergency 999.  Or report anonymously through Crime stoppers on 0800 555111.

8. Report to the Council any walls, street lamps etc that require repairing.  It may not be the Council’s responsibility to repair a wall but they will liaise with the owner.  Damaged walls provide ammunition to damage property.

9. Talk to your children and make sure they value other people’s property.

July 2019 update

The Street Offences Team (SOT) are a proactive team set up and have now been in place for the last year working on Op Lumination. They have made over 215 arrests in this time for a variety of offences as well as seizing 77 cars, due to no licence, no insurance or no road tax. The team continue to concentrate patrols in the Forest Fields and Hyson Green area. Sixteen stop searches have been conducted by the team and weapons and drugs have been seized resulting in persons being charged and summoned to court. 

Due to the end of term and also the warmer weather we want you to ensure you doors and windows do not attract suspects attempting to steal items from cars of houses, please be mindful.  We continue to investigate, make arrests and provide advice to residents and business. Why not take this opportunity to review your homes security and remember not to advise on social media if you are planning to go away over the summer months. Most important to remember is shut windows and doors and lock up!

Berridge Ward Strategic Priorities: April 2019

Date: 
April 2019

Berridge - April 2019

Recorded crime has fallen over a rolling 12 month period with 103 fewer recorded crimes, a reduction of nearly 5%. In the last month overall crime has also fallen by 5 offences which is a reduction of just over 14%. We have seen reductions in robbery and vehicle crime but there has been one more residential burglary. This demonstrates that the work we are doing with our partners is targeted in the right areas but we must and will continue to work to reduce crime further paying particular attention to the two identified Crime Priorities:-

(1) Residential Burglary and

(2) Vehicle offences.

To assist with this endeavour we have at our disposal:

• Operation LUMINATION – a Proactive team comprising one Sergeant and three constables tackling street based crime.

• Police detectives to review all burglary and serious violent crime investigations.

• Staff who will target those criminals who are actively committing these crime types on our area. For example, any individual who has historically committed these crimes on our area but is currently wanted for an unrelated offence will be prioritised for arrest.

• Staff who use social media as well as face-to-face communication to educate and inform the public regarding crime prevention.

• Staff who will manage intelligence based activity ensuring that anything of particular note is dealt with as a priority.

In addition please note that your local Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) will still be proactively dealing with priorities identified at the local neighbourhood level.

Following meetings with our partners, we are also working alongside those partners to tackle Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) on several fronts, namely:

1. Rubbish and littering (including fly tipping)

2. Intimidation caused by people gathering

3. Noisy neighbours or loud parties

Many incidents do not follow any patterns or trends and cannot be traced to a single location, time, day, victim or offender so they are difficult to prosecute but where they are attributable to an offender we will always take positive action.

The Berridge NPT will contact every victim of burglary, follow up vehicle offences and ASB to reassure you, offer advice and maximise the amount of evidence that can be gained by completing house to house and CCTV enquiries. We will always support victims to ensure a prosecution where the evidence exists, but there are things that we would encourage the public to do to help us prevent incidents.

1. Keep doors and windows locked at night. Try not to put expensive electrical items on display near open windows. Leave a light on in the property when you go out, set the burglar alarm if you have one, and if not consider fitting one. It’s best to have Home insurance.

January 2019 update

Officers have been working on The Street Offences Team as part of Operation LUMINATION throughout the new year and into January, both in plain clothes and high visibility patrols. This has resulted in significant arrests ranging from drugs searches, offenders carrying knives, suspects in burglaries and other target offenders identified from committing offences on the area. Our high visibility patrols have been well received to deter repeat offending and make the suspects think twice about committing crime.

With burglary down, with several persons off the area, this has certainly led to offenders being prevented in committing offences on the Berridge ward. Vehicle crime seems also to be in good control, we have arrested and served strict conditions on offenders to keep off the area, we will be policing these conditions to ensure any breaches are dealt with positively
