Crime, Safety & Emergencies

Broxtowe Borough Council is committed to reducing crime and anti-social behaviour.

Emergency Planning

Broxtowe Borough Council's Emergency Planning team deals with those emergencies that requires a response from one or more of the Council's services that are extraordinary and exceptional to the usual level of service provision and/or that the Emergency Services can't handle alone.

The Borough Council works to reduce anti-social behaviour (ASB) and crime and promote community safety through its membership of South Notts Community Safety Partnership (SNCSP) covering the boroughs of Broxtowe, Gedling and Rushcliffe.

Community safety partnerships (CSPs) are made up of representatives from the police, local councils and fire, health and probation services (the 'responsible authorities') and were set up as statutory bodies under Sections 5-7 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998.

The responsible authorities work together to develop and implement strategies to protect their local communities from crime and to help people feel safe. They work out local approaches to deal with issues including anti-social behaviour, drug or alcohol misuse and re-offending.

The South Nottinghamshire Community Safety Partnership (SNCSP) brings together key agencies involved in crime prevention and community safety work.

The public can play a vital role in tackling crime and ASB by providing information to the Police (101), the Borough Council (0115 917 7777) or anonymously to Crimestoppers 0800 555 111.
