City Central Priorities: July - Sept 2021

Share by emailShare by email
Date: 
July 2021

I have continued to work with our partners to understand and
define specific 'Local Policing Priorities' that effect and concern the
community. These priorities do not replace those agreed at the NAT meetings,
nor those defined through the respect survey; in fact this reinforces and
compliments them.

The meeting to discuss these priorities is held every 3
months, and is attended by Local Neighbourhood Development officers, Police,
and City Council Community Protection Team to look at data provided by the
Nottinghamshire Police Crime Commissioners Office, following perception surveys
they conduct of the area around gaining local community concerns.

However, due to the recent Pandemic with Covid 19, the
current priorities have been drawn from local statistical data, knowledge and
partnership working. We discuss, local community feedback provided to us by the
Neighbourhood Development officers, which allows us to be more informed.

The 3 agreed Priorities for the next 3 months, July -
September 2021 :-

1) Serious Violent Crime

2) ASB and drugs

3) Acquisitive Crime

June update (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 offences. 

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.
