Message from PC Adrian Bradshaw

I have been contacted by numerous persons expressing concerns over the assault victim located on Rutland road on Sunday 04/11/2012.

I would like to inform you all that the assault did not occur on the Lady Bay area and apart from the victim being found there, there are no links to the Lady Bay area.

When people raise concerns or in general discussion can you please pass these details on to the community to restore the residents' confidence and quell the concerns.

Thank you

Rushcliffe

In the last year, levels of crime in Rushcliffe have reduced by over 16% which refers to nearly 800 fewer offences. The greatest volume reductions have been across vehicle crime (-260); criminal damage (-163); VAP with Injury (-91), Dwelling burglary (-86) and drug offences (-85). The force as a whole achieved an 8% reduction and so the reduction in Rushcliffe is double this. When compared to crime levels 5 years ago, levels are almost half what they were (-48%).

In addition to nearly 800 fewer offences in the Rushcliffe Borough, there were also 574 fewer Anti-Social Behaviour incidents when compared to the previous year. This is more than double the reduction achieved in the Force area as a whole. When compared to ASB levels 5 years ago, there has been a 40% reduction.

Lady Bay

There was a 32% reduction in all crime in Lady Bay beat in 2011-12 which refers to 90 fewer offences when compared to the previous year. This reduction is almost double the reduction achieved in the borough as a whole and 4 times the reduction achieved across the Force as a whole. The main volume reductions were achieved across theft (-22); criminal damage (-22) and vehicle crime (-12). Over the same period there has been an 18% reduction in Anti-Social Behaviour which is in line with the Rushcliffe reduction. Crime levels in Lady Bay have seen a 48% reduction over the last 5 years.

Nottinghamshire Police are taking action to reduce vehicle crime even more, and you can help:

Don't leave items on display, remove valuables and wipe away sat nav marks

  • Always lock your vehicle, and don’t forget the boot and windows
  • When you’re out and about, always try and park in a secure attended car park, or use one that’s been awarded the Park Mark® status by the British Car Park Association. Find out more at www.saferparking.com
  • When parking at home, use your garage if you have one and lock garden gates. If you park on the street, try to leave your car in a well-lit area or near a CCTV camera
  • Fit an immobiliser or an alarm, and use a steering lock to deter criminals. Get more information about these devices by calling the Vehicle Security National Helpline on 0870 5502006 or the Sold Secure Helpline on 01327 264687
  • Consider buying anti-theft screws for your number plate and attach lockable wheel nuts to help prevent wheels from being stolen
  • Have your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) etched on windows, windscreens and headlamps
  • Keep serial numbers for electrical items such as CD changers or sat navs, and mark them with your vehicle registration number. This will help the police return items to you if they’re stolen and later recovered.

Cycles are still being left insecure in gardens.

Cycle Security - Theft of cycles is a widespread problem. So often, they are left unattended outside shops and homes. A new security product has come to light .

SPYLAMP Spylamp is a covert tracking device that is hidden inside a bicycle rear light. The rear light appears and functions as normal to avoid suspicion but inside it houses a complete GPS tracking device. Hold the on/off button down for 3 seconds and your tracker's vibration sensor will activate. Any subsequent movement of your bicycle will mean you get an instant SMS message and the tracking function will activate, so you can see where your bicycle is.
