Your local policing team
Local policing teams are groups of officers dedicated to serving the community. Teams are made up of officers based in the area, supported by additional officers from the wider area.
Teams work closely with local authorities, organisations, partners and residents to decide policing priorities. This helps teams find long-term solutions to local problems.
Rushcliffe Neighbourhood Priorities - July to September 2021
July to September 2021 – Rushcliffe Local PrioritiesAs a result of the Rushcliffe Local Priority Setting meeting held at the beginning of July it was agreed along side stakeholders and partners that the following three priorities would be our focus the summer of 2021. Edwalton anti-social behaviour - there has been an ongoing issue with vehicle and noise based anti-social behaviour on Edwalton beat reported by residents and elected members. Issues have been reported around the Hilton Crescent CoOp supermarket and also the Alford Road area including Alford Road park. There has been neighbourhood policing activity in the area over the last quarter and analysis of reports to Nottinghamshire Police indicates the situation has improved. See update from previous priority period for details. However further correspondence from the local MP representing local constituents indicates the problem of mopeds on the park still exists. As a result new beat manager PC Tambu is personally contacting local residents directly to understand the issues from which he will design a plan of action. PC Tambu will work trained off-road motorbike officers on several dates in the coming weeks. We will utilise ASB powers and will involve parents, schools, and other youth partners to put a stop to this as soon as possible. Cotgrave anti-social behaviour – feedback from Councillor Butler representing local residents in Cotgrave identifies anti-social behaviour as an emerging problem around the Cotgrave Hub and also vehicle related ASB where off-road motor bikes are being used illegally. We have spoken with Cotgrave Town Council who have given use details of the issues as they have been reported to them. Sgt Jury is working with the Town Council and elected members to understand the issues and we will put an patrol plan in place at key times to reassure local people and to gather intelligence so that we can appropriate action.Operation Sahara – rural communities’ burglary and theft of plant machinery, off-road vehicles, and high value theft. Operation Sahara commenced last October on the back of an identified pattern of rural acquisitive crime. Previous updates detail some of the work undertaken by our Reacher team around Sahara. Analysis shows that this crime type is on a downward trend and rural burglary and theft is now back to normal pre-pandemic levels. Feedback from rural stakeholders including National Farmers Union and Cllr Ingliss (Portfolio Holder for Community Safety) and various Parish Councils shows that this operation should continue for a further three months with a view to seeing continued reductions in crime and to continue with our engagement and reassurance with rural communities.
Rushcliffe Neighbourhood Priorities - April to June 2021
Local Priority Setting Meeting (LPPSM) April to June 2021April 2021 updateThe LPPSM took place involving the local neighbourhood policing sergeants for Rushcliffe North and South, the Local Intelligence Officer, Rushcliffe Borough Council Community Safety Officer and the Rushcliffe Borough Council Community Safety Portfolio Holder.Firstly we reviewed the partnership activity and outcomes from the previous quarters LPPSM Priorities. Insp Berry discussed the crime reporting and performance relevant to the priorities and how this had gone between Jan and March. Views were sought from the group of how the priorities were seen by the stakeholders including local residents and elected members and whether the issues were perceived to be dealt with sufficiently to conclude the particular priority. In relation to the burglary priority the recorded levels of burglary have reduced significantly in the last three month period and by 44% over the course of 2020. In relation to the spike in shed burglaries experienced in Musters and Melton in Feb 2021 we undertook extensive problem solving through prevention work including patrol and reassurance and we brought together an investigation strategy under one lead supervisor. At the conclusion we also completed extensive engagement with stakeholders both face to face and via social media to achieve a wider reach. All feedback shows this is not a problem at this time and the problem solving plan held has been concluded.The road safety and speeding priority has received significant attention during the last three months. We are in the process of training up a new Community Road safety community group who will then be able to independently operate our speed camera equipment. In addition both our north and south neighbourhood teams have had dedicated duties to targeting speeding motorists and as a result there have been warnings and enforcement. Although this activity will not have resolved all speeding on our roads it will remain part of ongoing activity. The third priority was drug dealing in West Bridgford. Under Operation Alaska Rushcliffe Police have executed two further drugs search warrants in the last quarter looking for Class A controlled drugs. Our Reacher team have assisted Neighbourhoods officers with these warrants and have also targeted a group of local young people who have intelligence links to drugs and or weapons. We have stopped and searched a number of these young people where there was intelligence to do so and in over half the cases we have found drugs in their possession. Importantly this intelligence has allowed us to bring criminal justice partners into the mix to help change behaviour and to give them the opportunities in terms of education and employment. A small group of individuals are part of our ongoing neighbourhood safeguarding and disruption work with key partners including social care and youth justice service.We continue to need your support with drug and weapon related intelligence and encourage reporting to police via 101 or crimestoppers confidentially on 0800 555111. New Local Police Priorities agreed for April to June 2021. We agreed two location based priorities for this period plus one based on acquisitive crime in a rural communities. Bingham Market Place anti-social behaviour ASBEdwalton anti-social behaviourRural crime – overnight thefts1. Bingham Market Place has seen an increase in reports of anti-social behaviour incidents to police, council and local Bingham Councillors. We are aware that the trend appears to be young people who are congregating on the Market Place in the evenings and causing some ASB and criminal damage. We are aware that there is a link with unoccupied Manor House and are working with Rushcliffe and the Town Council to find a solution. 2. Edwalton ASB - Hilton Crescent and St Lukes Close around the CoOp supermarket area. Involving a group of young people some of which use mopeds. The group congregate on Alford Road Park. Our team will consult local residents and councillors and we will use a range of tactics to prevent and where necessary enforce. We will work with schools and other relevant partners and we will be patrolling at key times and will use different force assets including our Off-road motor bike officers and possibly the force drone. 3. Rural crime – overnight thefts from farms and businesses. Including theft of plant machinery from building sites, power tools from out buildings and linked vehicle crime. Cllr Ingliss highlighted that he has heard many representations from the rural community. This is in line with our crime pattern analysis over the last 3-6 months which shows the distinct problem with rural theft of plant and machinery in particular overnight. Operation Sahara was set up to deal with these issues from a policing perspective and this is owned by our Reacher team. Although we executed a successful warrant on Thurs 15th April and from which two arrests were made we are aware that this problem is not solved. With the agreement of lead Councillor we will make rural acquisitive crime a priority for the next quarter to allow us to focus our efforts on this for another three months.April – June 21 Local priorities update1. Bingham Market Place Anti-social behaviourIn terms of problem solving, working with Rushcliffe Borough Council and Bingham Town Council we have moved a park bench that was situated in a bad location and attracting local young people at night which in turn was impacting on residents who live around the market place. This immediately had a positive impact on ASB reporting which is good to see. We have had regular engagement with the a small number of frequent callers to police to identify and resolve the ASB issues that they have bene reporting including noise and speeding vehicles around the Market Place. PC Voce and PCSO Wesson have dedicated a number of hours high vis patrols including foot patrol to see what is happening to listen to local people to understand their view. The local Neighbourhood Team lead by Sgt Jury have used the speed gun to educate motorists that are driving inconsiderately in the busy Market Place area. We have encouraged reporting and contact with the local team and publicised a number of opportunities to meet officers to understand local officers. We will continue to patrol the market place but feedback indicates the original problems have improved. 2. Edwalton Hilton Crescent and Alford Park Anti-social behaviour The new Edwalton Beat manager PC Usman has landed on his beat and is getting stuck into this issue as a local priority. PC Usman and PCSO Mawer have dedicated numerous hours of patrols and visible presence to the CoOp supermarket, Hilton Crescent and the Alford Road Park. We have briefed local stakeholder including local Councillors and the MP Ruth Edwards. We have stopped and engaged a number of youngsters in order to identify the problem group. It was apparent that the problem is a small group of individuals and not the great majority of young people who want to use the park courteously. We have patrolled and conducted a weapon sweep of Alford Road and Boundary Road Park as part of our Op Sceptre Knife crime activity. We have also deployed the speed gun and road safety camera van to Alford Road and Valley Road. Finally, as we were informed that there had been sightings of mopeds on the park we also deployed off-road motorcycles to the patrol the area with the remit of using ASB and Road Traffic legislation to seize any mopeds used illegally. The problem group have all been visited for face to face engagement and one young person now features in a multi-agency partnership meeting in which the Youth Justice Service and Social Care have picked up actions to work with him and his family. Even though calls to police and the Borough Council have steadily decreased we have listened to feedback from local residents who inform us that there remains a problem with ASB. Therefore we will continue to focus on this location. 3. Rural crime – acquisitive crime including plant theft Operation Sahara continues in rural Rushcliffe and the Reacher team have continued with the enforcement and intelligence work. The team has made 20 arrests, recovered stolen property, cash and 4 vehicles seized including quads that were being used antisocially. We have been concentrating efforts again on our rural village burglaries and machine thefts. This has resulted in several arrests along with the recovery of stolen vehicles and machinery. One of these being the only vehicle that one elderly farmer had to get around. Fortunately, it was protectively marked and found by the team within 24hours of being stolen. The protective marking helped us identify it within the hour and then returned it to the farmer. With help from the local beat teams we will be looking to set up property marking events which we will be advertising through our social media pages. This along with our activities is helping to prevent and detect rural crime.Partnership working this month with Environment Agency and the council has seen us helping to tackle fly-tipping in the rural areas of Rushcliffe. We have identified a suspect for some of the offences in East Bridgford/Bingham and the Environment agency are taking the investigation forward.Local intelligence has let to 4 warrants being executed in relation to drugs and stolen property. Stolen property worth over £20000 and over £15000 cash have been recovered this month alone. We thank the people who are contacting us to let us know what is happening in their area. Hopefully you have seen that we are acting on this information quickly and getting results that are having a positive impact on the community around them.As the weather gets better, we are using our parks and open spaces more. Unfortunately, that can lead to people trying to take advantage of us relaxing and enjoying our open spaces. The robbery of a bike from a young man at Holme Pierrepont last week is a classic example. The Reacher Team were in the area and managed to catch the offender trying to escape the park with the stolen bike. Crime pattern analysis covering the period April to June shows a decrease in overnight acquisitive crime (Plant, vehicle and power tool burglary and theft) in the northern cluster, prominently those north of Bingham. Our review would indicate that this success is partly due to the enforcement and disruption approach taken by police and partners. We are conscious that this is a long term issue and so Op Sahara will continue to be run by the Rushcliffe Reacher and Neighbourhood team. The team in the final phase of planning for a cross border roads policing operation taking place in the mid to late June that will target criminals on the rural roads. We will keep you updated on progress.
Rushcliffe Neighbourhood Priorities - January to March 2021
Local Priority Setting Meeting - January to March 2021Priorities set jointly with Rushcliffe Borough Council and elected members from the Borough and Parish Councils. BurglaryOPCC survey data alongside #Whatmatters survey data and feedback from Elected Councillors highlights that burglary remains a concern for residents in Rushcliffe Borough. Although the recorded crime statistics show us that house burglary (called dwelling burglary by police) has significantly reduced during the pandemic and during Lockdown we also understand that Dwelling burglary remains a constant risk in Rushcliffe and so remains a strategic priority for long term focus and problem solving by police and community safety partners. In addition, although dwelling burglary has reduced significantly, we have continued to be affected by consistent levels of shed, garage and outbuilding burglary. This is a continuation of a priority identified last summer in the July to Sept neighbourhood priorities. Burglary is an invasive crime which aside from financial loss causes significant upset to victims. Often the psychological impact is far worse than the loss of property therefore burglary will remain a priority for us within the Rushcliffe Borough.What we are doing:We have identified the locations were there have been more than one offence and targeted those areas for crime prevention and additional patrols. These include Lady Bay, Abbey, Trent Bridge and Musters in West Bridgford. We have also focused on Ruddington, Bingham and smaller villages in the northern cluster including Flintham, Screveton and Car Colston. We are targeting known and prolific offenders working together with the County burglary team and other force resources. We are attending all dwelling burglaries and ensure that victims are safeguarded. We maximise forensic and investigative opportunities to identify suspects who will be prioritised. We refer victims to support services and work together with partners at Rushcliffe Borough Council to provide advice and crime reduction measures. We ensure that known offenders are appropriately supervised where possible to reduce the risk of re-offending. We will utilise local and social media to raise awareness of burglary and crime prevention opportunities.February update – updated 2nd March January and February continued to see low levels of house burglary. There were significant arrests made in the county wide car key burglary series which impacted on Rushcliffe. Unfortunately, there were twelve sheds broken into where cycles were stolen in the Musters and Melton wards in West Bridgford in two weeks in early February. We commenced Operation Rigel and our Neighbourhoods officer and Reacher team worked several night shifts and patrolled in plain clothes and on foot and on cycles so that we could react to any reports quickly. We also visited all victims and their neighbours to offer advice and support. Operation Sahara continues led by our Rushcliffe Reacher team focussing on the villages north of Bingham where there has been an increase in overnight outbuilding burglary and plant theft in rural communities. There have been seven arrests between Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire officers which has significantly disrupted offending and consequently this pattern of offending has reduced. Our Reacher team are continuing to follow up on every intelligence opportunity and will continue to keep in touch with local stakeholders. We are monitoring this situation closely. Road safety and speeding on our roads.Identified as a priority because:Regular feedback Elected members presented to LPPS meeting by Portfolio Holder Cllr Ingliss. Also feedback through the #Whatmatters survey has indicated that there is increased community concern around Speeding and Road Safety. The first ‘lockdown’ due to the Coronavirus resulted in increased reports of Speeding, particularly in rural villages. Reports of speeding vehicles around key community locations such as schools have also increased. Speeding increases the risk of collision and injury both to drivers and members of the public. The road noise created by speeding vehicles has an impact on the wider community. What we are doing:We are conducting several road safety operations targeting speeding and other offences such as the use of mobile phones and seatbelts. Speeding operations will be carried out under community speed watch operation. We will utilise the Neighbourhood Policing team, Operation Reacher and the support from our community groups in order to carry out enforcement activity. We are also working closely with Rushcliffe Borough Council to raise awareness of Speeding through campaigns. We will also seek to increase the number of volunteers who are part of the Community Road Safety Scheme (CRS).February updateWe have dedicated three days to roads policing and speeding and have run community speed watch initiatives at three locations. We have stopped dozens of cars in addition to this as a part of policing our roads in hot spot crime locations (burglary and catalytic convertor theft) and dealt with drivers for Covid regulations as well Rushcliffe Borough Council have supported with several social media initiatives with that wide social media reach across the borough. Drug supply and possession Operation Alaska in West Bridgford In the last twelve months the West Bridgford Neighbourhoods Team have executed thirteen premises search warrants based on drugs intelligence. This has resulted in drug dealers and users being arrested and prosecuted at every level of the illegal drug supply chain.In late 2020 it was becoming apparent that the drugs supply network extended beyond West Bridgford and at that point Rushcliffe South Neighbourhoods team successfully executed warrants in Cotgrave. We have continued to disrupt drugs activity/supply and possession and we do so through intelligence provided by local communities. The #Whatmatters survey conducted across the Rushcliffe Borough has identified that continued concerns around drug supply. Often drug users will commit offences such as burglary/autocrime and shop theft to fund drug habits therefore the impact on the local community cannot be underestimated. What we are doing:Our pledge has been to continue to act on community intelligence and feedback results and publicise arrests and prosecutions. We have seized tens of thousands of pounds of Class A and B drugs and criminal property including cash. If you follow my monthly Rushcliffe Stakeholder report you will see that our Reacher team Sergeant James Ross updates on the progress of his team’s drugs enforcement work. We are working with our schools’ officers to provide education around drug use in our local schools, particularly given that it is linked to more serious crime. We are also working with our partners to deal with substance misuse in the local community. We will use social media to publish results of enforcement action and will look to work closely with partners to take further action around prolific offenders which may involve the use of closure orders or criminal behaviour orders.February 2021 UpdateDrug SupplyThere has been continued activity around drug supply in Rushcliffe following feedback from members of the local community. In late February we executed three drugs warrants simultaneously in Edwalton and recovered Class A drugs and cash. We also arrested three males and a further male received a cannabis warning and a woman was interviewed under caution. Whilst this investigation remains ongoing it demonstrates our commitment to act on the intelligence you give us. Please remember you have the option of using Crimestoppers to reports to us confidentially 0800 555 111.
