Blog covering January to March

General Crime Update

It has been a relatively steady few months since New Year. Although we continue to have burglaries, vehicle crime and ASB reported to us we are not experiencing any particular ‘hot spots’.

When we do identify a spike in crime in a neighbourhood we are swift to deploy our resources into that locality. We recently identified an increase in shed burglaries and our actions led to the arrest of a prolific burglar who is now in prison.

Anti-Social Behaviour

As the weather warms up we will continue with our operations to combat ASB caused by motor bikes. My Off Road bike team are ready to deploy and will be out this weekend to challenge nuisance behaviour.

Speeding

Residents continue to tell me that speeding in the 20 mph areas is a problem. Pc Dave Dennis has conducted several operations around Bilborough and Wollaton. He will be doing more in the coming weeks.

Drug Enforcement

During February and March my team have acted on community intelligence and conducted several warrants with the vast majority being successful. One warrant identified over £100,000 worth of cannabis in an address. These operations are on-going and we urge anyone with information to contact us on 101 or anonymously or on crime stoppers 0800 555
111.

Engagements

My team continue to be out and about in the community working with closely with youth provisions, schools and community groups etc. Our colleagues in Community Protection had fun running an Easter Egg hunt!

And Finally

It is a fond farewell to PC 513 Rich Naylor who is leaving my team to take on another role within the Police Service. Rich has been the Bilborough beat manager for over a decade and will be missed by his community but we all wish him well in his new role. We welcome his replacement PC Ian Robinson who will pick up the reigns in Bilborough.
