An overview of achievements and work underway
In the process of delivering the Police and Crime Plan, we have continued to reorganise the way we work in order to meet the challenges of financially-stretched times. This has meant pooling scarce resources where we can, and thinking ‘collectively’ across policing and community safety. This has helped us to achieve the best results and outcomes possible.
By listening to our victims and communities, we have been able to identify and respond to their priorities and needs. This has involved investing both time and money into building stronger relationships between our policing services and the people we serve.
Funding challenges remaining high on the agenda but we still have to deliver the Government’s savings targets. We will meet these by encouraging new ways of working and using our available assets in the best possible way for the public.
An important and ongoing focus is the improvement of opportunities for communities’ voices to be heard and listened to .
Increasing the visibility of policing in our communities and tackling low level crime and anti-social behaviour is a crucial part of what we do to enable people to have a better quality of life, free from the fear of crime.
Commissioner Paddy Tipping says: “My vision for Nottinghamshire is not just about reducing crime but about preventing crime in the first place – particularly where victims are concerned.
“Significant work is underway to help domestic abuse victims and those in the grip of alcohol addiction to receive the support they need. I’m also working closely with the Chief Constable to see how early intervention could benefit the management of high volume offenders, rural and wildlife crime, anti-social behaviour, speeding and road safety, and shoplifting.”
Progress in achieving the Police and Crime Plan is continually monitored and reported - please see our Performance Reports section.
