Crime
Update

Year
to date the overall crime on the City West shows a 4% reduction of reported
crimes. This equates to 277 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 14% (61 less reports).

Vehicle
offences are down by 23% (165 less reports).

Disappointingly
we are showing a year to date increase in personal robbery with 3 more reports
than we had this time last year. This is an increase of 4%. We have been
working hard in this crime area by putting in additional patrols.

ASB

Anti-Social
Behaviour continues to be a concern with only a minor decrease of 2%. Year to
date we have received 2028 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**

Man arrested after 3mph police chase

 

A man has been arrested after
officers chased down a digger fleeing the scene of a theft at 3mph.

Nottinghamshire Police was
called just after 3.20am today (9 March) to a report of a digger being stolen
from a building site in Park Lane, Basford.

A member of the public called
police after being woken up by a loud banging sound and then seeing the digger
being driven away.

Officers found the vehicle
making its less than speedy getaway in Park Lane. Officers managed to smash the
windows and pull the driver from the digger after it failed to stop.

A 35-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of theft of a
motor vehicle following the incident.

 

 

Court Result:

Woman jailed after making hoax calls to emergency
services

 

Holly Coogan has been sentenced to 12 months in jail on
Thursday (6 February 2020) after making multiple calls to the emergency
services whilst drunk.

 

The 32-year-old from of Vernon Road, Nottingham pleaded
guilty to the offence at Nottingham Crown Court.

 

She made eight calls to East Midlands Ambulance Service
(EMAS) from her mobile phone on 6 December 2019 
within four hours.

 

The following week, she rang EMAS again and the emergency
services attended, but Coogan refused to open her door or answer her phone.

 

The Fire Service had to attend to gain entry to the
property and she then refused all help and did not want the paramedics inside.

 

Three days later, she made ten calls to 999 from her
mobile phone within one hour in the early hours of 16 December 2019.

 

On three occasions she terminated the call whilst
speaking to the call taker.

 

All the incidents breached her Criminal Behaviour Order,
which was given to her in January 2019. The current Criminal Behaviour Order
has now been increased from two to five years.

 

Superintendent Paul Burrows from Nottinghamshire Police
said: “Every hoax or inappropriate call our emergency call handlers receive has
the potential to delay us from responding to genuine emergencies and put
someone else’s life in danger.

 

“If we attend a hoax call, it means we’re not available
when someone really needs our help. It could be a matter of life or death. Hoax
calls can be traced and callers run the risk of a heavy fine and even a prison
sentence.

 

“All we ask is that people only call 999 in
genuine emergencies and remember that there are other ways to contact us for
less urgent enquiries, with the Nottinghamshire Police website offering advice
on hundreds of policing and non-policing issues and the 101 non-emergency
number also available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”
