Extra high-visibility patrols are continuing across the tram network and surrounding areas following the fatal stabbing of Kyle Knowles.
Mr Knowles, aged 32, of Staunton Drive, Sherwood, died after he was stabbed on a tram approaching Highbury Vale tram stop at around 11.10am on Monday 26 June.
Detectives are continuing to pursue multiple lines of inquiry and a 24-year-old man remains under arrest on suspicion of murder.
High-visibility patrols increased in the aftermath of the incident and are set to continue for the coming days to reassure the public and address any concerns they may have.
Members of the public out and about in the area, using the trams, or who simply want to have a chat with patrolling officers are being encouraged to speak to police officers.
Patrolling the tram network and working with partners at NET trams is not new for the force but to offer extra reassurance to anyone feeling scared, anxious, or worried about the events of Monday more officers will be onboard and in the surrounding areas.
The investigation into Mr Knowles' death remains ongoing and specially trained officers are continuing to support his family.
Anyone with any information, who has any mobile phone footage or was in the area at the time is asked to either call 101, quoting incident number 274 of 26 June 2023, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
