This morning, Anna had a meeting with Broxtowe’s most senior police officer before he takes up new duties in North Nottinghamshire. Inspector Simon Riley reports that recent stats show crime is down in the majority of categories. By way of example, Dwelling House burglaries in Broxtowe are down 63% in the last 12 months from 157 to 58. Unfortunately anti-social behaviour is up by 11% and crimes of violence where no injury was caused have also risen by 48%. They both agree that more police officers are needed.
“We will all miss Simon Riley’s proactive professionalism. We are particularly grateful for his speedy replies to any request we have made of him on behalf of constituents and for his assistance in keeping me and my staff safe.” Said Anna.
