The rule of 6 has now returned and up to 30 people are allowed to gather outside. We have seen an increase in activity in open spaces due to this. We have increased our patrols to deter any ASB and ensure the open spaces are used responsibly.

We have conducted a number of warrants throughout the month of May, continued with hot spot patrols of ASB and obtained our first closure order of a property.

A property on Thurman Street within the Arboretum ward was responsible for a significant amount of ASB over recent years. The neighbourhood policing team worked tirelessly and sought a court order under the Crime and Anti-social behaviour act to close the property for a period of 3 months. This is the first time this legislation has been used within the team to offer the community some respite whilst partners seek to possess the property.

The team have been working closely with Community Protection, Nottingham City Council and ASDA to combat aggressive begging and ASB around the supermarket and nearby park in Hyson Green. As part of this joint problem solving approach a ‘Community Hub’ will be built in the car park funded by ASDA. The ‘Hub’ will have a uniformed presence on certain days from Police and Community Protection and will allow a space for other organisations and charities to engage with the community using the store.

The ‘Hub’ has now been approved and will be in place later in the year.
