Police step up borough village patrols after crime spree

Police officers have stepped up patrols in a number of villages across the borough following a recent crime spree.

Over the past few days officers have been conducting high-visibility patrols in the villages of Ravenshead, Linby, Papplewick, Calverton, Woodborough and Lambley.

The patrols are in response to the recent increase in burglaries in these areas.

Last week thieves targeted properties in Linby, Papplewick and Ravenshead and managed to successfully gain entry to the inside of a property and took camera equipment and gold jewellery.

They attempted to gain entry to a number of other premises in the area, but didn’t succeed.


A spokesman for Nottinghamshire Police said: “These patrols will continue on an ad-hoc basis for the foreseeable [future] in order to deter any further crimes being committed.

“We shall be engaging with the community whilst conducting these patrols so please feel free to stop and chat with us should you see us out and about.

“If you do see anything suspicious, please do not hesitate to contact us on 101 or, in the case of an emergency 999.
