It has been a real privilege to serve as Nottinghamshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner since 2012.
These years of Austerity have been difficult with Government cuts damaging the services that keep people safe. Put simply, across the country there are over 20,000 fewer police officers on our streets than under Labour in 2010. Even with recent changes we won’t get back to those levels before 2023.
I’ve focused Nottinghamshire Police on crimes that are particularly important to local people. We have specialist burglary and robbery teams, and the only Knife Crime team outside London. We are rolling out the Operation Reacher model of pro-active policing to all the neighbourhoods in the City.
We have reintroduced police officers to work in schools and help divert young people from crime
In Nottinghamshire there will be more officers this year than when I was elected in 2012. By driving down costs Nottinghamshire Police has been able to start recruiting early, which is why there will be 147 additional officers on our streets from March this year alone.
We’ve done a lot. With your support I will do more.
More police officers! Crime & anti-social behaviour down in Nottingham.
