    • nottspolice Plain-clothed officers who arrested two burglars moments after they had broken into a family home have been commended by Judge Michael Stokes QC for their quick thinking and initiative. PC Jim Russell-Taylor and PC Mark Westlake were patrolling burglary hotspots in the early hours of March 25 this year, when they saw two youths acting suspiciously. PC Russell-Taylor said: “We were walking along Mapperley Road into Forest Road about 5am and spotted the lads. After following them for a couple of minutes, we became a little bit suspicious so we stopped them to have a closer look at what they were carrying.” When the officers checked the contents of their bag, the officers found a Mac laptop worth around £1600, two iPhones and other goods. The pair were arrested and when questioned insisted they owned the goods or they belonged to family members. However, they were caught out when it became apparent that they didn’t know any of the numbers in the phone or the registered owner named on the laptop. When PC Westlake called the ‘home’ number saved in one of the phones, the victim hadn’t realised that her house had been burgled.

    • nottspolice It was the year that Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer married, MTV first aired, the average house price was £24,188 and crime in Nottinghamshire was under 89,000 offences. Now validated statistics for the last financial year show that Nottinghamshire Police has recorded its lowest crime figures since 1981. The force has achieved another 14.2 per cent reduction in crime, compared to the previous year, down 13,990 crimes. While in 1981, the force recorded 88,927 offences, this year there has been 84,329 offences. Offences of burglary, robbery, criminal damage, vehicle crime, and violence have also dropped dramatically throughout 2010/11. A 26.2 per cent reduction in burglary means 2,065 fewer people have been victims. While there has been 2,463 fewer vehicle crimes (- 23.1 per cent), 4,377 fewer offences of criminal damage (- 21.9 per cent), a reduction of 473 robbery offences (-24.5 per cent) and reductions of 235 most serious violence offences (- 27.7 per cent) and 3,142 fewer victims of assault with less serious injury (- 29.4 per cent). In addition to crime reductions, the force has also seen an increase in the number of crimes detected, which means more criminals are being arrested and put before the court. Since 1 April, the force has gone from four to two divisions. However, all four divisional areas saw crime fall. Mansfield and Ashfield (A division) saw a drop of 4,152 offences, down 19.6 per cent; Bassetlaw, Newark and Sherwood (B division) reduced crime by 19.3 per cent (14,093), the city’s crime fell by 3,954 offences (9.8 per cent) and South Notts (D division) recorded a 12.9 per cent reduction – 2,512 fewer crimes. Here, ACC Paul Broadbent says thank you to the people of Nottinghamshire who have helped to bring about such significant crime reductions.

    • nottspolice Police in Worksop today launched a campaign encouraging local people to pass on information about drug dealing and criminals operating in the area. The 'Rat on a Rat' campaign asks for information about criminals and their activities to be phoned into crime fighting charity Crimestoppers. Officers intend to use intelligence passed on to them anonymously from the community through Crimestoppers to target drug dealers and users and prevent them from committing offences, particularly car crime and burglaries. Leaflets were handed out in Worksop town centre and the Manton area by Police Community Support Officers and Community Safety Volunteers. They were supported by Divisional Commander Chief Supt Dave Wakelin, Coun Glynn Gilfoyle, chair of Crimestoppers in Nottinghamshire, and Coun Mike Quigley, leader of Bassetlaw District Council, who are both members of Nottinghamshire Police Authority. Here, they explain what they hope to achieve with this campaign. To Rat on a Rat, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
