Chorus Telecom Intelligence Software Licences

The purpose of this report is to recommend approval of the purchase of Chorus licences to facilitate a Cloud based system. 

Access to Chorus is currently provided via Derbyshire Police who 'host' the server. Therefore, to access the system, Nottinghamshire staff have to log on to Derbyshire's network via the citrix gateway and then into Chorus. Derbyshire Police are moving to a Cloud hosted version of Chorus this year and therefore will no longer support Nottinghamshire's Chorus access after November 2021. 

The direct access to Chorus via a Cloud hosted system will make the force self-sufficient in relation to this intelligence and evidence gathering software.

  • £12,000 to go to Livingstone House - via a funding agreement with the PCC - to provide drug and alcohol misuse treatment and rehabilitation support; and 
  • £3,000 to Framework or Nottinghamshire Police to manage in relation to care package arrangements to support greater social functioning of offenders.

2021/22 Make Notts Safe Fund

The PCC is requested to confirm her verbal agreement to award up to £131.008.52 to 16 third sector organisations through the new 2021-22 Make Notts Safe Fund. 

The Commissioner has a vision to 'make Nottinghamshire safe and feel safe' and outlined a number of areas of activity where third sector organisations may be well placed to deliver projects to help meet her overall priorities as part of this fund. These were as follows:

Preventing

  • Crime preventation initiatives and early help interventions that deal with the causes rather than consequences of crime.
  • Outreach work focused on high risk crime and ASB locations which seek to identify at risk individuals and provide them with advice and support to prevent them from future involvement. 
  • The provision of education and diversionary activites (including sport, arts, music, drama etc.) in communities, set up in key locations and at key times that aim to steer young people away from crime.
  • Work with key partners to reduce reoffending and tackle the drivers of crime and ASB.

Responding

  • Community led initiatives to raise public awareness and prevent issues of the greatest concern to local communities, such as ASB, speeding and rural crime.

Supporting

  • Community led initiatives to increase reporting of local issues and improve victim and community trust and confidence in the police. 
  • Capacity building for small community organisations supporting victims with protected characteristics. 
  • Pre National Referral Mechanism (NRM) support for victims of modern slavery. 
  • Piloting of new innovative support for victims that meet a current gap.

Funding for Nottingham Purple Flag Profile

Purple Flag is an accreditation process similar to Green Flag Award for parks and Blue Flag for beaches. It leads to Purple Flag status for town centres that meet or surpass the standards of excellence in managing the evening and night-time economy. Nottingham has held Purple Flag status for its city centre since 2010. 

Every two years there is an external process in order to ensure that standards have been maintained and that previous recommendations have been acted upon. The previous external assessment in 2019 highlighted that Nottingham needed to improve the way it markets its Purple Flag status.

The latest assessment is due in the last quarter of 2021 and Nottingham Business Improvement District have asked that PCC to provide £3,500 to support activites to promote the city's Purple Flag status. Activites will be carried out under the joint branding of the organisations involved. The BID will provide all resource for completion of the Purple Flag application and promotion and the PCC will provide funding to resource and execute the marketing strategy. The £3,500 will be paid from the Nottingham Late Night Levy fund.

Fleet Capital Programme Budget 2021-22

The original budget allocation for the Fleet Capital Programme for 2021/22 totalled £2,361,000 and was approved as part of the budget setting process by the OPCC. Following a recent review with the Forces CFO/Head of Department for Fleet and the Fleet Manager and in recognition that a more focused strategic plan has been developed since the move away from the PFI contractor an increase in that budget will be required of £300k. 

The reason for the requested increase includes reprofiling the general replacement of vehicles, replacement of write off vehicles, a change in the mix of marked/unmarked vehicles within local policing and an increase in vehicles for Roads Policing. 

Due to the lead time in ordering and receiving delivery of new vehicles plus conversion times the proposal is to increase the vehicle spare fleet by 6 vehicles so in the event we have an operational vehicle written off the delay in a replacement will be minimal. 

Capital Receipt Income is expected to increase by £300k due to the sale of general replacement vehicles and will therefore off-set requested increase in capital expenditure budget.

MOJ Critical Support Fund and funding award to SHE UK

In June 2021 the MOJ announced a Critical Support Fund which was intended to meet any exceptional or additional need for community based sexual violence and domestic abuse support that could not be met through existing allocations. The Police and Crime Commissioner for Nottinghamshire completed a bid to the MOJ for funding for SHE UK to ensure they could continue to support their existing service users and was successful in securing £8,500. 

This £8,500 for SHE UK from the MOJ Critical Support Fund is in addition to the £7,500 awarded to SHE UK from the MOJ Sexual Violence Uplift Grant and a further £4,000 that the PCC was agreed to award SHE UK to ensure that the service can continue to provide support to its service users for the remainder of the financial year (2021/22).

Police and Crime Survey Contract Extension

The Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Survey is a key product used to inform planning and performance by the OPCC, police and community safety partners. The contract for the Police and Crime Survey was awarded to Information by Design and expired at the end of July 2021. 

Moving forwards, the Commissioner intends to undertake a competitive tendering process as part of a multi-year contract. However, due to the timescales this has not been possible since the Commissioner was elected in May 2021.

Additional Passive Drugs Dog for Nottinghamshire Police

A proposal has been received by the Police and Crime Commissioner from the Force to fund the purchase of an additional passive drugs dog at a cost of £24,775.

Passive drugs dogs have proven themselves valuable assets to Nottinghamshire Police in a
range of capacities including management of the night time economy (NTE).  Operation PROMOTE and now GUARDIAN has run with demonstrable success in Nottingham city centre's NTE since 2013 helping to reduce violence whilst disrupting and deterring those with drugs and weapons from entering the city centre during a higher-risk period.

The availability of passive drugs dogs within the Force is limited and therefore the ability to
expand the use of this resource to other areas of the county will be limited at the current
capacity.

This proposal will increase the capability and capacity of the Force in the use of a valuable tactic and provide for this functionality to be more readily available across the Force Area.

JHQ Generator

In conjunction with the 2019 project for the Police and Crime Commissioner for Nottinghamshire and the Nottinghamshire Joint Fire and Rescue Authority joint HQ at Sherwood Lodge, it has recently been identified that the 800KVA generator currently on site at the Nottinghamshire Police and Fire HQ would need to be upgraded to a much bigger generator than originally scoped. Assumptions were made at the time of designing that the existing generator would have sufficient capacity to power both the new and existing buildings. A review of the Mechanical and Electrical Design established that this would not be the case and there had been a significant under-estimation in the power requirements of the new and existing buildings. The back-up generator ensures that in the event of a power failure the HQ will be operate as normal in delivering an emergency services to the public of Nottinghamshire, which is a fundamental business requirement.

Public Consultation Survey for the relocation of Newark Police Station

Proposals have been advanced to relocate Newark Police Station from its current location to a joint 'hub' with Newark and Sherwood District Council. The Police and Crime Panel was notified of this proposal in March 2021 as a 'decision of significant interest'. The incumbent Police and Crime Commissioner took office formally on 13th May 2021 having made a campaign commitment to ensure that a full public consultation on the proposed relocation has been carried out. There is therefore a need to commission a robust public survey to ensure that this commitment can be implemented and that meaningful public consultation informs any decision on the future of Newark Police Station. This need is consonant with the Commissioner's responsibility to listen to and reflect the thoughts and feelings of the residents of Nottinghamshire. A proposal has been received that will discharge this requirement in a timely and cost effective manner.

Lease Renewal - Phoenix House, Lime Tree Place, Mansfield

The above premises which comprise offices.and storage facilities are occupied by Nottinghamshire Police under a 10 year lease which expired on 4 October, 2019.  Since that time extensive discussions have taken place regarding a further long term lease. However, the site was formerly a gas depot and the landlord, National Grid Property Holdings/Birch Sites, is keen to complete site investigation works to establish the extent of any underground contamination prior to arrariQing clean up works and before a further long term lease is entered into.

Therefore a two stage approach has been agreed with a short term lease being entered into, backdated to the expiry of the previous lease. This short term lease will run until 30 September, 2021 following the completion of site investigation works. This will be followed by a further 10 year lease upon · expiry of the short term lease, with a tenant only break option after 5 years.

As part of the negotiations, a substantial reduction in rent has been negotiated to take effect from 5 April, 2020

The custody project is a multiyear project to deliver a new Nottingham Custody Suite at a new location within the City, work is now ahead of schedule, and we are therefore at this point intime predicting that the budget allocated to this financial year is at risk of overspending.  It is reuested that £600k of budget allocated to 2021/22 is brought forward to 2020/21 to cover the costs.

It is expected that the project will be delivered on budget in totality, but the phasing maybe a little out of line with costs being incurred.  For a multi-million pound project, over multi years this is not unusual.
