Basford Ward Update – April 2012


During March the Basford Ward comprising of Park Lane, Stockhill and Whitemoor saw overall crime decrease very slightly during the month compared to the same period last year.


There were 11 House Burglaries during March, this was the same as February. At the moment there is no clear pattern of offences or any specific location being targeted.


There were only 3 robberies reported during March. Can I remind people to keep mobile phones and small items of value kept in pockets as these can often increase the chances of an opportunist committing this type of crime.


Vehicle Crime, including Theft of Motor Vehicles and/or Theft from Motor Vehicles was down for the month with a total of 10 offences, this was down for the second month running which is fantastic news. In March 2011 we had 16 vehicle crime offences.


Overall crime for the month of March saw a small decrease of 6 offences compared to the same period last year. This was very good news and we aim to build upon this reduction during April.


During April we will be working with Community Protection and Neighbourhood Management to undertake pro active police operations in relation to the agreed community priority, and undertaking specific operations around Davids Lane area.


During March we had a number of new registrations to Neighbourhood Alert, so thank you if you promoted its use, and if not, can I ask you to consider friends and neighbours who might want to sign up. The more people registered the better information we can share.


Finally, any suspicious behaviour can be reported using the non-emergency contact number – 101, or to make contact with your local Safer Neighbourhood Team you can visit the website and put your postcode in half way down the home page.


Thank you

A/Insp James Woolley

Bestwood & Basford NPA
