Paddy Tipping, Nottinghamshire’s newly elected Police and Crime Commissioner, will attend a Neighbourhood Watch conference this weekend designed to share ideas and discuss the community’s role in neighbourhood policing.
The conference, taking place at County Hall on Saturday 24 November, has been jointly organised by the countywide scheme, Notts Watch and the City of Nottingham’s Neighbourhood Watch Council (CNNWC).
In addition to the Commissioner, guests include MP Kenneth Clarke and Assistant Chief Constable Susannah Fish from Nottinghamshire Police.
Attendees will be able to hear a range of examples of how partnership working has worked to improve the quality of life and community safety in neighbourhoods around Nottinghamshire.
Paddy Tipping, Nottinghamshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, said: “I’ve worked with Neighbourhood Watch groups for many years and I am delighted that here in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire efforts are being made to pull groups together so we can learn from each other.
“As the new Commissioner, I want to make it very clear that I am going to strengthen and deepen the relationships that already exist between the Police and Neighbourhood Watch.”
Dr David Rhodes, Chairman of CNNWC, said: “We are delighted the new Commissioner is able to attend our event and is so positive about our work. It is really important that we build on the success of our collaborative working to date, learning from best practice in other schemes.
“This event will showcase successful activities that have been implemented in the Ravensdale Estate, Clifton and Radcliffe on Trent areas.”
