Policing Priorities: January 2022

Date: 
January 2022

My local teams and I are determined to tackle and reduce incidents of burglary, drugs and road crime and these will be my area priorities for the next three months. This decision has been made after reviewing crime trends and listening to the concerns of local residents and businesses and what issues matter most to you.

BURGLARY

I’m pleased that house burglaries continue to decrease in Broxtowe thanks to the hard work of the neighbourhood policing team, our dedicated Broxtowe Operation Reacher team and our burglary investigations team. However we will never be complacent and we need to keep the pressure on as the impact on burglary victims is so great.

DRUGS

Two operations will continue to focus on the drugs trade operating in the area.

Operation Hadar in Eastwood entails high-visibility patrols, covert activity and proactive, intelligence-led targeting of key suspects, including the enforcement of search warrants wherever this is possible. We will work with and alongside internal and external partners to achieve our aims in this. Additionally we will work with housing sector partners to pursue eviction and closure proceedings against problem premises.

Operation Larkspur has been in existence since August 2020 and was set up to proactively target antisocial behaviour, violence and criminality, including the local drug trade in Stapleford, following an increase in these types of incidents coming out of the first national Covid-19 lockdown.

Both of these operations will see additional patrols in place to provide reassurance and crack down on criminality but  I do need the community support to achieve this so please tell us what is happening  out there so I can direct my proactive work. I assure you that anything you tell us will be treated in the strictest confidence and reviewed by a member of my team to identify tactics around the information.

ROAD CRIME

Listening to our community we have brought in a new priority for the area and that is ROAD CRIME SAFETY. This will encompass speeding, thefts and crime  for all vehicles on our roads. Over the next three months, our plan is to utilise ANPR tactics to identify and tackle risk on our highways, deploy capture bikes across our areas to identify bike thief’s, host community speeding operations to reduce danger  on our roads and provide the community with targeted crime advice events to help protect our vehicles.
