The Community Safety Team

The Council’s Community Safety Service comprises of a number of areas; Complex Case Management, Community Protection Officers, ASB and Nuisance Casework, Domestic Abuse and Safeguarding and CCTV which all play a key role in addressing, preventing and reducing anti-social behaviour across the district and making our communities safer.  

The Community Safety Team was launched in 2009 and at that time largely consisted of a team of Community Protection Officers who responded to on-street anti social behaviour, focusing on environmental enforcement.  The service was accredited by Nottinghamshire Police enabling officers to use some enforcement powers also used by Police Community Support Officers.  Community Safety is a priority for the Council and the Council has continued to increase the resources to tackle anti social behaviour and provide our residents with a first class service. 

Working alongside our partners we have made great strides in how we support victims and tackle offenders, using statutory powers whenever needed. There is however increasing demand for our assistance and our focus is therefore both on helping to solve immediate issues but also working to prevent re-occurrence.

The team tackle all aspects of anti-social behaviour and nuisance (including neighbour related ASB, and wider environmental issues such as waste on land) and work across all domestic properties irrespective of tenure and public places.

The Council is playing a lead role in the Community Safety Partnership, facilitating the creation of a multi-agency hub within the Council building which will bring together colleagues from the Police, Council, Probation, and Victim Support. Our previous ‘hub’ was on a smaller scale and whilst this introduced many benefits including information sharing and partnership interaction, we are moving in a new direction towards service integration maximising our collective impact and making a greater and more positive difference for our residents.
