July 2020

Antisocial behaviour (ASB)

Our next priority starting July until end of September in the City North area is antisocial behaviour and drug related crime.

These priorities have been locally identified through the Crime and Drugs Partnership respect survey along with the beat team itself in consultation with partner agencies. 

The Prevention of Crime and ASB is a priority set out by the Office of Police and Crime Commissioner as well as the Youth Commission Priorities to seek rehabilitation against re-offending.

This is what the City North beat team including Community protection will be doing to help tackle these:-

• Identify and target hotspot areas.

• Encouraging reports from the public.

• Work closely with partner agencies.

• Build intelligence pictures to identify potential offenders and offer diversions.

• Discuss tactics and give updates in joint agency meetings.

 • Continue to deliver programmes for educational establishments and other vulnerable premises.Generate and execute warrants.

• Use social media to give you timely updates.

• Swiftly Process offenders and use both police and civil powers to hinder future activity including housing.

July update

ASB – Cars and local youths

• Regular contact with shop management.

• Regular patrols conducted by the beat team.

• Visit the callers of ASB in relation to collating evidence.

• CCTV being monitored and improved to identify offenders.

• Diversion through youth provision.

We are aware that the Anti-Social use of off road bikes and quads at this time of the year increases due to the weather, we will be targeting our patrols in the areas most affected by this and looking to take positive action by deterring the use of these vehicles and taking enforcement action where appropriate.

We will be looking at our colleagues in specialist roles such as Drones and Off Road Motorcycle Teams to assist us with this. 

If you see any nuisance vehicles do not hesitate to call us on 101 and we will endeavour to attend as soon as we can to obtain details and seize if required.

Nottinghamshire police have received a significant number of complaints and calls for service regarding a male who has been causing anti- social behaviour on Hucknall Road in Carrington, including making constructions on the pavement and in the bus lane, disrupting traffic and pedestrian flow.

This behaviour has had a significant impact on the local businesses and residents alike and we thank you for your patience during this difficult time whilst officers from the Sherwood Neighbourhood Policing Team, have been working closely with the male and partner agencies in order to take positive action and resolve this very complex case in a way that helps and benefits all.

Good progress is now happening and calls have significantly reduced.

We executed 4 drugs warrants in July resulting in the seizure of a significant amount of Class A and B drugs including 218 plants.

We have made 3 arrests who are currently released under investigate whilst enquiries remain ongoing.  

August Update 

A great start to OP RESILIENT Over the weekend of the 5th and 6th September – Created to tackle vehicle nuisance

The neighbourhood team issued 1 Traffic Offence Report & seized a moped as the driver was driving otherwise in accordance with a licence; we also have a further Traffic Offence Report to issue for no insurance having seen a vehicle drive with no insurance attached to it.

We used this opportunity to engage with several groups of riders throughout the course of the Operation and offer them advice.

On Sunday in Bulwell we had several Motorbikes Fail to Stop for Police which has resulted in CCTV and in car video enquiries to try and identify the vehicles and their riders; however many of the vehicles were unregistered and therefore uninsured vehicles.

I would like to appeal for anyone who has Dashcam Footage or any information in regards to who owns or was riding these vehicles to make contact with Nottinghamshire Police quoting incident 0207_05092020.

Our final stop of the operation was a male suspected of being under the influence of a controlled drug, a subsequent search of the male identified several bags of cannabis on their person and a large amount of cash. After requiring the driver to take a drug wipe preliminary test at the roadside they were arrested for Driving a Motor Vehicle whilst Unfit and Possession with intent to supply Cannabis, our enquiries into this are on-going.

This really does go to show how targeting Anti-Social Behaviour in the community can lead to uncovering other offences and disrupting criminality on the roads.

This is part of an ongoing Operation which will also incorporate any new rules set out by the government under COVID 19 and we will not hesitate to issue fines where appropriate and large groups purposely form causing a risk to others.

Due to high spate of anti-social behaviour and criminal damage in Bulwell forest garden, Community Protection and Nottinghamshire Police put together an action plan to tackle the on-going issues. 

This has involved us co-ordinating different shift patterns to patrol the area ensuring a high visibility presence between the hours of 5pm until 10.00pm.  Signs have been put up in the local area to deter any individuals from trying to gain access when the premise is closed. 

I am pleased to report that over the last few weeks since our operation, there have been no further calls of anti-social behaviour.

Two women have been arrested as part of an operation into a conspiracy to smuggle drugs into a Nottinghamshire prison.

The arrests were made after officers executed warrants at addresses in Andover Road, Bestwood, and Wingbourne Walk, Bulwell, on Tuesday 15 September 2020.

Two women, aged 44 and 53, were arrested on suspicion of conspiring to bring a list A prohibited article into HMP Ranby.

The warrants were carried out thanks to a joined-up Nottinghamshire Police approach and good teamwork involving Gedling's Operation Reacher team, County CID, Tactical Support Group officers and the City Neighbourhood Team all working together.

Drugs in prisons cause a whole host of issues which the team work hard with our colleagues in the prison service to tackle.The warrants were part of a proactive piece of work being undertaking, under the banner of Operation Oregon, to disrupt this supply, to pursue suspected offenders and bring them to justice.

I would encourage anyone who has information about drug supply of any kind to come forward and share what they know with us by calling Nottinghamshire Police on 101 or by calling Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

The two women arrested following today's warrants were subsequently released under investigation.
