New police priorities for Gedling borough revealed

Police in Gedling borough focus on a number of policing priorities each month


The borough’s dedicated police team have presented their priorities for making Gedling a safer place to live in over the next month.

Gedling’s Neighbourhood Police Team plan to focus on tackling anti-social behaviour as the nights draw in.

The police agree their priorities with Gedling Borough Council‘s Portfolio holder and they have agreed to focus on the following areas

• Tackling anti-social behaviour (ASB) in Front Street and parks in and around Arnold
• Tackling anti-social behaviour in Netherfield
• Tackling antisocial behaviour associated with car cruisers – Operation Triplefin

A police spokesman said: “It is very important for us to stress that we are confident we know who several of the perpetrators of ASB in the Arnold and Netherfield area are. As a result, we will be targeting these people, including working with their families to intervene and educate. This will give them an opportunity to reflect on their behaviour, how that is impacting on the local community and hopefully change.

Police also revealed last month’s priorities delivered some successful outcomes.

They focussed on addressing car cruising in the Netherfield area, under Op Triplefin. Colleagues from Gedling Borough Council have also complimented this work with the introduction of a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) to the area.

In the last three months the team have achieved the following:

17 x Sec 59’s
10 x RFS/TORs issued for varying offences
7 Vehicles seized using Sec 165 powers
2 Vehicles seized using sec 59 powers
3 Arrest for Driving Unfit through drugs (namely cannabis)
1 Arrest for Drink Drive

They have also issued seven prosecutions for a breach of the PSPO.

  2. Is crime in Arnold so much higher than the rest of gedling to need extra police presence?
    Do people in other areas of gedling not pay council tax towards the police?
