27 October 2014Influence Policing In Plumtree

From: Paul Dickinson (Police, Partnership Coordinator, Nottinghamshire)

If you want to influence what issues your local beat team focuses on where you live or work for the next three months, complete our online Neighbourhood Priority Survey.

Together with meetings with residents and community feedback, the results of the surveys are used to help local beat teams set their priorities.

Completed anonymously, the survey asks you to explain what concerns you have about criminal activity where you live. It asks for information about a range of concerns, including antisocial behaviour, speeding, street drinking, nuisance vehicles and other criminal activity.

You can give more information about the offences being committed and the days and times incidents are happening. You can also pinpoint exactly where the problems are, with a marker on a map.

The information you enter into the site will help your local beat team decide which issues are most important to people in your area and what three things they should tackle over the next three months.

To have your say on policing in your area visit www.neighbourhoodprioritysurvey.co.uk.

If you know someone who hasn't got access to the internet, but would like to complete a survey, paper-based surveys can be obtained from your local beat team. Call 101 to speak to them or visit www.nottinghamshire.police.uk and click on Your Local Police to find out who your beat team are.

23 October 2014Theft From Motor Vehicles

From Kathryn Lucock (Police, PCSO 8309, Rushcliffe)

Between 1550 hours and 1700 hours on Wednesday 22nd October 2014 several vans were broken into in the East Leake, Bunny and Loughborough Road areas. The vehicles targetted were all work vans and power tools and generators were stolen from within unattended vehicles. The offenders have forced the locks on the rear doors using an unknown impliment.

It is believed the offenders were using a White Ford Transit type vehicle with the passenger wearing a orange high visibility vest.

The vehicle was seen driving at speed away from an attacked van on Loughborough Road at Bunny at around 1600 hours.

Did you see this vehicle or have any CCTV that may have captured the registration number.

If you have any information about this incident please contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101 and quote incident number 000631-22102014.

In light if this incident we would like to offer the following crime prevention advice:

  • Ensure your vehicle is locked and secure.
  • Don’t leave valuables on show in your vehicle. That old coat on the back seat may be worthless, but a thief won't know that or that the pockets are empty.
  • Don’t leave your wallet or mobile phone in your car even if you’re just nipping somewhere for a few minutes. It only takes a thief seconds!
  • Park your car in your garage or on your driveway, if possible, and try to park in a well-lit area.
  • Don’t leave your keys in your vehicle when you are not in it.
  • Activate your alarm and immobiliser if you have one.
  • Make use of security devices such as steering locks.
