Local Policing Priorities April to June 2022

Share by emailShare by email
Date: 
April 2022

Having reviewed the reports we are receiving, spoken with our communities and upon consultation with our partners I have decided to keep our Policing Priorities on the Newark and Sherwood area the same for the next quarter (April to the end of June), these being;

  • ASB
  • Drugs
  • Rural Crime

My rational for doing so is simple, from that consultation and from the data I see these are still the areas of greatest concern and for ASB and Drugs are a precursor to offences such as violence whether that be physical or threat, criminal damage and theft inclusive of shop theft, vehicle related, personal and burglary.

By keeping the focus on ASB and drugs we have a direct effect on the issue and associated crimes in the short term but also on longer term basis through engagement and support changing attitudes and behaviours. In my most recent Blog you will find detail of the work that has been done and which will continue in very much the same vein.

As I have mentioned above, Rural Crime which includes wildlife crime, environmental crime and infrastructure offences such as metal and fuel related crimes continues to be of a significant concern for our community and I believe it is only right that this remains a priority. To this end we have drawn in resources from around the force to provide additional patrols and activity and additional investment has been made to uplift our ANPR Camera coverage across the district. Our engagement event at Newark Showground on 16th April was very well received and we are looking for this to become an annual event to complement the smaller events we conduct throughout the year.
