Nottinghamshire’s new Police and Crime Commissioner, Paddy Tipping, started as he means to go on today (19 November) by attending a Rural Crime Summit to learn more about policing issues affecting rural areas of the county.
The event took place at the Newark Showground and was attended by Nottinghamshire Police’s Assistant Chief Constable Paul Broadbent and MP Patrick Mercer among others.
Paddy Tipping said: “I am delighted to have been invited along to the event at the Newark Showground, and enjoyed hearing about how current neighbourhood policing practices are carried out in rural areas such as Newark.
“I know people living in the countryside don’t feel they get a fair share of police resources, but I want to reassure them that I will work with them and for local communities.
“I believe that everyone needs to feel safe and secure in their homes and on the streets wherever they are and wherever they live.”
