Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
Once again we see this concern adopted as a priority for the City. In the past we have managed to reduce the amount of reported incidents/ concerns from businesses but unfortunately we are again seeing an increase at various locations across the City.
Issued: September 2018
What we are doing:City officers will issue begging warnings when people are caught begging and we are currently working with the CPS to look at realistic outcomes when suspects attend Court. This is not an easy problem to address but we will continue to work with partner agencies such as the Street Lifestyle team in hope of deterring people away from this type of ASB. Issued: September 2018
Rough Sleeping/ ASB in Car Parks-
This has been a growing concern for car park owners and members of the Public for some time and work has been completed in the past. However with reports of ASB in car parks on the rise, this has been adopted as a Priority for this month.
Issued: September 2018
What we are doing:A local working group has been established to look at problem management and liaison with the car parks has been key. Over the forthcoming months you will see officers working from and conducting engagements at various car parks across the City. Please keep a look out on our website/ social media for updates on where and when these events are. Officers have liaised with outreach teams re the on going problems and street pastors have also been briefed. Staff at car parks have also been provided with details of support groups so they can also offer support to these people Issued: September 2018
Police statistics have seen an increase in reports of commercial burglary recently. This has been a previous priority for the City but was closed earlier this year when a number of suspects were charged and given custodial sentences.
Issued: August 2018
What we are doing:UPDATE SEP = August has seen a decline in Commercial burglary, compared to the summer months, although reported offences remain such that this will continue to be a priority for the City. Research shows that the majority of offences occur overnight and often premises have been left insecure. The City team actively use social media and so over the next couple of weeks please keep a look out for key Crime prevention advice. We will continue to utilise the skills of our Integrated Offender management team regarding managed offenders who pose us most risk. When suspects are identified they are actively sought without delay. Issued: August 2018
There have been a number of concerns raised regarding the amount of people carrying weapons. This is not only a local issue but a National one, which is often subject of high media attention. It is only right being a busy city centre we take notice of this and do what we can to reduce the amount of weapons coming into our neighbourhood.
Issued: August 2018
What we are doing:UPDATE SEP = Officers are encouraged to pro-actively police the area and continue to make good use of stop and search powers where grounds permit. We have regularly reviewed intelligence surrounding individuals involving knives and have south them when seen in the city centre. Our licencing officer, PC 2093 Pritchard has worked closely alongside licenced premises and in the process of arranging the issuing of metal detecting wands to venues around the city. This will deter knives being carried throughout the city. City officers have also taken part in pro-active warrants which has yielded the discovery of a stun gun. This has since been destroyed and is now off our streets. Issued: September 2018
Bike Theft - After a significant amount of work around the issue of cycle theft it has been identified that the incidents have become more isolated to Gallowtree gate, Humberstone gate and the Clock Tower. Cycle theft does still occur at other location, however those stated have become the local team’s main focus.
Issued: May 2018
What we are doing:UPDATE SEP = Enquiries have been made at second hand shops, which have resulted in confirmed stolen bikes being returned to their rightful owners. This has lead to intelligence development on confirmed offences. This intelligence has resulted in the arrest of a male who was found in possession of a set of bolt croppers in the city centre. D-Locks continue to be sold at Mansfield House Police Station, with bike passports also being available. We continue to recommend using secure bike storage at Town Hall Square. Issued: September 2018
