Long Eaton police step up patrols in West Park following spate of damage

Posted on 20th April 2017

Our officers in Long Eaton are stepping up their patrols in West Park after a spate of damage. 

Over the last week damage has been caused to young trees and out-buildings. 

Sergeant Damien Shannon, who is in charge of Safer Neighbourhood policing in the area, said: “The damage seems to be completely without motive. 

“We have been speaking to our partners at Erewash Borough Council and increasing our patrols on the park. These patrols will be both high visibility and plain-clothed.” 

“The particularly upsetting part of this damage is that the offenders are spoiling a facility that is there for all to enjoy and so I would encourage anyone who knows anything about the incidents to make contact with us.”
