Crime Update

Year to date the overall crime on the City West continues to show an 8%
reduction of reported crimes. This equates to 412 fewer reports.

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 are locked.

House Burglaries are down by 30% (94 less reports).

Vehicle offences are down by 37% (193 less reports).

Disappointingly we are showing a rear to date increase in personal
robbery with 8 more reports than we had this time last year. This is an
increase of 21%. We have been working hard in this crime area by putting in
additional patrols; and in the past fortnight we have had only one robbery
report which is being investigated by CID.

ASB

Anti-Social Behaviour continues to be a concern with only a minor
decrease of 4%. Year to date we have received 1522 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**

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.

Our officers have also been
patrolling in plain clothes during evenings/ nights and made several arrests
and seized controlled substances.

Police Dog Morse helps with arrest of man in Broxtowe

A man was arrested after failing to stop for
officers.

The 50-year-old failed to stop for officers at
around 10pm last night (20 October 2019) in Bells Lane in Broxtowe.

Officers then pursued the vehicle through
Browtowe estate for 10-minutes before the driver left his vehicle in Bracknell
Crescent.

An area search began in local gardens and
following excellent work by officers, aided by Police Dog Morse and his handler
PC Haywood, he was eventually arrested for failing to stop, theft of a motor
vehicle, possession of drugs and burglary.

The vehicle was also seized.

Officers have been praised for the quick
response.

Inspector Gordon Fenwick said: "This was
excellent team work between divisional staff and officers from the force's
Operation Support unit.

"I'd like to praise PC Parkes and PC Sutton
who first sighted the vehicle, as well as praising police dog Morse who
assisted in the search, leading to the arrest. It was a great team effort all
round and another successful result."

AFFRAY

A 15-year-old boy has been
arrested on suspicion of affray and possession of a bladed article.

It comes after a report that a
56-year-old man had a kitchen knife pulled out on him after he refused a
request for a cigarette in Westwick Road, Bilborough, at 7.30pm yesterday
(Monday 21 October). He walked off and was not injured in the incident.

Officers were quickly on the scene and stopped and searched a boy nearby
and recovered a knife,  he was arrested.

Enquiries are continuing any anyone who witnessed the incident is urged
to contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 745 of 21
October 2019, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

 

FAIL TO STOP

A woman has been taken
to hospital after being struck by a vehicle that had failed to stop for police
moments earlier.

The vehicle was in
collision with the pedestrian in Broxtowe Lane, at around 10.03pm today
(Tuesday 29 October), before being abandoned a short distance away in Bells
Lane, Broxtowe Estate. The driver then fled on foot and enquiries are ongoing
to trace him.

The woman's injuries are
not believed to be life-threatening.

Officers had been
pursuing the vehicle after it failed to stop before the incident happened.

A number of roads have
been closed while the collision is investigated and the incident has been
referred to the Independent Office for Police Conduct by Nottinghamshire
Police.

Anyone who witnessed the
collision or has any video footage that could help the enquiry is urged to
contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 872 of 29
October 2019.

 

Engagements

We have carried
out many community engagements on the past few weeks. Our Mini Police officers
attended Force Headquarters on Armistice Day to perform a guard of honour in
the remembrance service.

Our Community
Protection colleagues have been busy patrolling keeping people safe during the
periods around Halloween and Bon Fire night.

And finally, our
resident Body Worn Cam celebrity Pc Keith Parkes had an audience at Jubilee
Academy where he answered questions and provided crime prevention and safety
advice.

If you are having
a community event this winter please let the local team know as we would like
to attend and engage with our people.
