Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping is taking to the streets on Friday 18 October to see two areas of Nottingham to see what is being done to tackle key priority crimes in the neighbourhood.
This is part of his plan to visit all key crime areas with the Deputy Commissioner over the next few months to better understand the issues ‘at grass roots level’ and, in liaison with Partners, to ensure that everything possible is being done to tackle specific issues in that neighbourhood.
In the morning, he will start out (at 10am) from Broxtowe Police Station, Strelley Road, Broxtowe, NG8 6LL. The Commissioner will be looking at the work being undertaken to address violent crime, domestic violence and burglary in the area.
In the afternoon, he will meet Insp Annie Yeats and local councillors at 2.00pm outside the Mary Potter Health Centre Gregory Boulevard, NG7 5HY. They will visit Radford Road and surrounding streets where street drinking and associated ASB has been reported, then on to a small part of the Forest Recreation Ground to see what is being done to tackle issues such as acquisitive crime, and then on to Radford East, where acquisitive crime, noise and anti-social behaviour has been reported as a problem.
Members of the press are welcome to attend. Please advise if you plan to come along to one or both events.
