Priority Update: May 2019

PRIORITY UPDATE:  MAY 2019
Please be aware that all statistical references in this update are an approximation based on real time or 'raw' data. As such, they may be subject to adjustment through time, where offence classification is amended during or the course of an investigation. They are however, a useful illustration of the activity in the priority crime areas on the borough.

BURGLARY OF PEOPLES' HOMES
May showed a reduction by around 4% in burglaries of peoples' homes, with a total of 20 offences recorded across the borough
with all but Eastwood and Eastwood South recording a reduction on the previous month's offences. We are currently seeking the whereabouts of a male offender who targetted an elderly couple in their home on 2 occasions.
Year to date numbers once again show a reduction on this time last year, with burglary of peoples' homes showing a reduction of around 68% - this equates to 88 fewer recorded offences on this time last year. We are proud of what we have achieved here, but rest assurred we will continue to target known burglary offenders with our colleagues in the burglary and intelligence teams.

MOTOR VEHICLE CRIME
May showed an increase in motor vehicle crime on the borough from April. Recorded offences of theft OF motor vehicle fell by around 78%, with only 4 offences recorded, however, theft FROM motor vehicle showed a significant jump, with an increase of 19 offences(68%) on April - Chilwell being the biggest hotspot. Year to date figures continue to show a marked reduction on this time last year though, with a reduction of around 27% for all 3 offence types (Theft of, Theft from, Interference), with a reduction of around 48% in terms of vehicles stolen.
Within the increased number of offences in May were a number of catalytic converter thefts from vehicles in the Toton, Attenborough and Beeston areas. We are currently investigating these and 2 males have been arrested and released under investigation for these and similar offences, just over the border in the City Division.
Another repeated modus operandi is around handbags being snatched from vehicles in supermarkets. Specifically, this has occurred when a bag has been left on the front seat of a car whilst the owner returns their trolley to the trolley park. This mo has been repeated across the County South CSP and in Derybshire. Please be vigilant when shopping and help prevent these offences by keeping your bags with you, or in the boot with your car locked.
We will continue to patrol hotspots and target known autocrime offenders.

VIOLENCE AGAINST THE PERSON
During May, 'all violence' offences showed an increase of around 16%, but violence with injury reduced by around 24% (16 offences less). Year to date figures mirror this, with the biggest increase being in violence without injury. Stalking and harassment offences have also risen, but this can be attributed, in the main, to the way we now record domestic abuse crimes, in that each of these crimes will also have a stalking / harassment occurrence recorded against it as well.
During May we executed warrants in Chilwell and Eastwood linked to drug dealing and violence and are liaising with Derbyshire Police with regard to some shared issues around drugs and violent criminality. We have also seen an increase in robbery offences in the Chilwell / Toton / Attenborough beat area. Proactive/reassurance patrols have been instigated in the affected areas and we are working with our partners in the borough council to tackle this problem holistically. We are also planning some activity under the banner of Operation 'Scorpion,' as a result of additional funding given to the force by HM Govt in order to tackle knife crime.

SHOP THEFT
Shop theft increased during the whole month of May, although it saw a reduction in the last 2 weeks of the month. Year to date maintains an increase on this time last year. We have had some successes in the last week of the month in terms of targetting our known, worst offenders and a number of these have been arrested. We will continue to provide high visibility patrols in the town centres and retail parks where we can, to try and deter thieves and to catch those who would commit these offences. When caught, we will always try and apply additional measures on these offenders, such as Criminal Behaviour Orders, which then gives us an additional element of control on them when they re-offend.

Priority Update: April 2019

PRIORITY UPDATE:  APRIL 2019
Please be aware that all statistical references in this update are an approximation based on real time or 'raw' data. As such, they may be subject to adjustment through time, where offence classification is amended during or the course of an investigation. They are however, a useful illustration of the activity in the priority crime areas on the borough.

BURGLARY OF PEOPLES' HOMES
April showed a reduction by around 33% in burglaries of peoples' homes, with particularly noticeable reductions in the Stapleford and Eastwood South beats. Both areas unfortunately showed increases in both non-residential and commercial burglaries.
This picture is mirrored in the year to date figures, which show a 57 % reduction in burglaries of peoples' homes and a similar increase in commercial burglary across the borough.
We continue to focus on known burglary offenders and work closely with the County Burglary Team in targetting offenders

MOTOR VEHICLE CRIME
Across the borough, all forms of autocrime have shown a reduction of around 14.0%, with the most significant being in Chilwell which showed a reduction of around 62% for the month.
For the year to date, the detail is even more encouraging, with a reduction of around 24% when compared with the same time last year, with Chilwell and Stapleford showing the biggest decreases in all forms of motor vehicle crime.
We will continue to patrol hotspots and target known autocrime offenders.

VIOLENCE AGAINST THE PERSON
All violence has reduced in Broxtowe by around 11% during April, with the biggest reductions in violence without injury and stalking / harassment offences. Violence with injury showed an increase however, by around 17% which is disappointing. Eastwood South, Beeston and Chilwell showed the biggest reductions across the month.
Year to date shows an overall reduction, but with increases in Stapleford and Beeston.
We have recently had some analysis done which will help inform our deployments around violence offences. The force are also in line for some funding from government around knife-enabled offending which I am hoping we will be able to draw from, in tackling violence on Broxtowe.

SHOP THEFT
Shop theft has reduced by around 34% across the borough during April, with 4% reduction for the year to date when compared with the same period last year. Historically, shop theft offending can 'peak and trough' from month to month, with many factors influencing the level of offending - such as seasonal increases and prolific offenders being released from prison who immediately return to offending. Town centres at Eastwood, Beeston, Stapleford and Kimberley, along with retail parks at Chilwell and Giltbrook remain the hotspots for shop theft

Policing Priorities For Broxtowe

April - June 2019
BURGLARY OF PEOPLES' HOMES
Why?
Burglary is an invasive crime which aside from financial loss, causes significant upset to victims. Often, the psychological impact is far worse and longer-lasting than the loss of property - particularly where sentimental items of property are lost. Victims often describe to us how they feel 'violated' following a burglary. People should always feel safe in their homes - it is our priority to make sure they do.
What we are doing:
Hot spot patrols. Targetting of known and prolific offenders. Engagement with the specialist County Burglary team. We will attend all dwelling house burglaries to ensure victims are safeguarded, forensic opportunities are maximised and the reduction of further opportunities for burglars to target that victim again. Referral of victims to Victim Support Services. Proactive crime prevention advice and provision of crime reduction measures in partnership with Broxtowe Borough Council.

MOTOR VEHICLE CRIME
Why?
Inconvenience and disruption to peoples' lives and livelihoods. Often seen as a crime of inconvenience, victims often feel violated in much the same way as they would after a burglary. The invasion of the private space, coupled with the inconvenience caused in the victim's day to day life makes the effects of this crime quite impactive. Again, this is one of the volume crime areas for the borough.
What we are doing:
Hot spot patrols and targetting of known and prolific offenders. Deployment of covert tactical options, such as capture technology. Engagement with partners in the borough council around crime prevention and identification/designing out of places more at risk of vehicle crime.

VIOLENCE AGAINST THE PERSON (including Robbery)
Why?
The harm caused by physical assault can range from psychological trauma to the ultimate conclusion of death. The primary role of the Police is to preserve life and prevent harm. Very often, the fear of violence can be a debilitating factor in peoples' lives - this is especially pertinent in domestic abuse cases.
What we are doing:
Hot spot patrols. Engagement with specialist Knife Crime and Robbery teams. Engagement with licensing departments at Nottinghamshire Police and Broxtowe Borough Council and Pubwatch to reduce the incidences of violence in and around licensed premises and events. Referral to Victim Support Services. Working with our partners around Domestic Abuse (Broxtowe Borough Council / Womens' Aid Service Broxtowe Womens' Project). Targetted activity under Operation Sceptre / Operation Scorpion (knife crime). Deployment of knife arches and knife wands at targetted locations

SHOP THEFT
Why?
Shop theft is the single biggest volume crime on the borough. With 4 clearly defined busy town centres and 2 large retail parks on the borough, we have a number of thieves who continually target the retail outlets in Broxtowe, including many offenders who live outside of the borough and often the county. Offenders for this crime type are very often the same offenders breaking into cars and committing burglaries on the borough. More often than not, we are more able to identify offenders for shop theft than for burglary and motor vehicle crime - if we are able to arrest them for shop thefts, then their ability to commit other crimes is curtailed.
What we are doing
We continually target those offenders who offend and re-offend the most often. Wherever we can within the confines of the law, we will try and secure a remand whenever we arrest. We will conduct regular patrols of the high streets and retail parks, engaging with retailers, security and shoppers.
