Date: 
March 2014

Close to the Radford and The Park Ward is the University of Nottingham, and this area is where a number of the students of the University choose to live off-campus. Operation Graduate is the name that is given to the work conducted by Nottinghamshire Police and Partner Agencies in these areas to ensure that these communities are as crime-free as possible, and are a pleasant area for students and longer term residents to live, work and socialise. Operation Graduate has been conducted since the Autumn Term and has seen fantastic results for crime-reduction. Planning has already commenced for the Summer Term to ensure that this term can be as low in crime and incidents as previously. Crucial to this work has been the crime reduction initiatives generated by the University, in addition to the support by the Council and other Partner Agencies in noise reduction, environmental factors such as littering and enforcement of the DPPO which came into effect last year. Despite the success of Operation Graduate, there are still crimes being recorded where the premise or vehicle has been left insecure by the owner. Remember to leave all windows and doors locked at all times
