Crime and Community Safety

Information on how Broxtowe Borough Council helps in dealing with crime.

Community Safety covers a broad spread of issues for the local community, from reducing crime and anti-social behaviour to providing CCTV and security services at locations across the Borough.

The Communities Team works to address these issues in communities across Broxtowe.  The team also helps to run the South Nottinghamshire Community Safety Partnership and works closely with other organisations such as the Police to plan a strategic approach that will help tackle community safety issues across the borough.

The main areas of work covered by the Communities Team include:

  • Working with partners to reduce crime
  • Supporting drug and alcohol awareness and diversionary activities
  • Investigating and enforcing anti-social behaviour
  • Raising awareness of and reducing hate crime
  • Reducing risk and safeguarding vulnerable people
  • Enforcement of environmental ASB
  • Disruption of Serious Organised Crime

Securing your Bike

Bicycles are often targeted by thieves because they are left poorly secured or not secured at all. It takes just a few seconds for the opportunist thief to steal a bike that is left unsecured.

Around 3,000 bikes are stolen in Nottinghamshire every year.

Find our more from the booklet created by Nottinghamshire Police, with different ways to protect your bike from being stolen(Opens in a New Window) and to increase the chances of it being returned to you if it is stolen.
