Inspector Amy English's blog: June 2021

Share by emailShare by email

Hello and welcome to my June blog.

June saw a rise in ASB in the Lenton area, a dispersal order was brought in along with extra dedicated police patrols. 

A house fire was reported on Player Street in Radford where
two individuals were trapped but thankfully were unharmed. An investigation is
still ongoing by our CID team.

Swift arrests were made following the report of a serious
stabbing on Belper Road, Radford. Friras Al Jalam, 19 and Adrian Pollack, 20
have since been charged in relation to the incident.

Hot spot ASB patrols have remained in place with focus on
Forest Rec, Arboretum, Lenton Triangle and Leen where we have seen the highest
number of incidents reported.

We have conducted a number of drug misuse warrants across
the area in the month of June and also worked alongside our Trading standards
colleagues in a multi-agency operation in Radford.

I have now set the next 3 month local policing priorities.

1) Serious Violent Crime

2) ASB and drugs

3) Acquisitive Crime

An update on
how we are performing in relation to these priorities are below

(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

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.
