Crime Update

Year to date the
overall crime on the City West is showing a healthy 10% reduction. This equates
to 415 less crimes compared to where we were this time last year.

Serious Violence

Reported violence
crime (where an injury has occurred) is down 20% - this means that there have been
115 less offences this year. Regrettably we are investigating a couple of
recent offences where during disorder a bladed weapon has been used to cause
injury. In both of these incidents the people involved are known to each other
and arrests have been made. Reports of violent incidents against strangers,
thankfully, remain extremely rare.  

Acquisitive Crime

Burglaries, theft
and vehicle offences are showing a healthy reduction however we still taking
regular reports of overnight thefts from motor vehicles where the vehicle has
been left unlocked. These thefts could be avoided if the car/van was locked.

ASB and Criminal
Damage.

Anti-Social
Behaviour continues to be a concern with only a minor decrease of 4%. Year to
date we have received 1302 reports of ASB ranging from noise complaints to off
road bikes etc. I ask that these reports continue as it allows me to put the
right resources into the right areas at the right time. We are working with our
partners to challenge ASB in all its forms.

**Please report
ASB on 101**

On a more positive
note criminal damage reports have reduced by 21% which is over 100 less
offences, year to date.

Knife Crime Awareness

We have continued
to work in our educational establishments talking to our young people about the
dangers and consequences of carry a knife. During the month we have carried out
several operations such as Automatic Number Plate Recognition deployments where,
through intelligence, we stopped vehicles where we suspected occupants maybe in
possession of a weapon.

We have made
arrests and seized a lock knife, a BB gun and drugs.

We have also been
sweeping our local parks with metal detectors to locate any hidden or discarded
weapons. 

Media Appeal

Police
have arrested a man in connection with a serious assault in Aspley.

Officers
were called to Broxtowe Lane at about 5.15am on Saturday (21 September 2019).

A
30-year-old man was stabbed in the garden of a property following a house
party.

The
man was taken to hospital with stab wounds. His injuries are not believed to be
life-threatening and he has since been discharged.

A
28-year-old man was arrested yesterday (Tuesday 24 September 2019) on suspicion
of grievous bodily harm with intent. He was subsequently released on conditional
bail.

Detective
Constable Ben Grayson, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: "We’re appealing
for any witnesses or anyone who has any information about this incident to
please come forward.

"At
this time we believe the people involved are known to each other and an
investigation is on-going. If anyone has any information or concerns I'd
encourage them to speak to one of our officers

Inspector
Gordon Fenwick added: "We are satisfied this is an isolated incident which
does not reflect the wider community.

"Nottinghamshire
Police will continue to work hard with our partners to target the use of
knives, remove knives from our public spaces, and educate and inform our
communities about the dangers and impact of knife crime.

"I'd
urge anyone who has any information about this incident is urged to call
Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 167 of 21 September
2019, or Crime stoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."

Nottingham Magistrates' Court today (Tuesday 10 September 2019) charged with
burglary. He was remanded in custody to next appear at the same court on 8
October 2019.

 

Engagements

We have carried out many community engagements on the past few weeks.
Our Mini Police initiative, which is currently being embedded into 6 junior schools,
has got off to a flying start. It was great to see them at the Nottingham Half
marathon handing out space blankets to the runners as they finished.  If you are having a community event this
Autumn/Winter please let the local team know as we would like to attend and
engage with our people.
