Issued 28 June 2023
Priority 1: Youth related crime and anti-social behaviour in public places. We will effectively analyse Police data to identify local hot spots for anti-social behaviour. We will use evidence led policing to implement an effective patrol strategy targeting key areas and individuals. We will use a holistic, problem-solving approach to manage identified issues. We will robustly enforce and manage key individuals responsible for causing these issues. We will use ASB intervention schemes provided by partner agencies to prevent repeated behaviour by offenders; partners include schools, social care, housing providers, Erewash community safety partnership, Remedi and youth justice services. We will use an incremental approach to and bringing offenders to justice when criminality is identified. We will provide effective support to victims of anti-social behaviour. We will use the national Op Sceptre campaign to educate and inform young people about the dangers and consequences of knife crime. We will communicate to the public about current issues and positive action taken to address this through use of our social media channels and public feedback. Priority 2: Working with partner agencies to tackle the impact of drug use on communities We will analyse Police data to identify local hot spots for drug related ASB/Crime to assist in directing hi-visibility and plain-clothes patrols. We will build effective relationships with those who have a problematic relationship with substances and use this to ensure an accurate understanding of the issues they are facing. With this information, we will make referrals to partner agencies to enable them to access support. We will also robustly enforce against and manage individuals responsible for serial criminality related to drug use and supply within communities. For first-time offenders, rehabilitative options in response to criminality will be offered, wherever possible. Priority 3: Road safety enforcement and education Officers will deploy to key locations on each beat for enforceable speed checks. Members of the team will support Community Speed Watch in their deployments when able and complete follow up visits to offending motorists in line with scheme guidance. We will encourage and facilitate residents to develop new community led Speedwatch Schemes. We will effectively target vehicles used for criminality and bringing offenders to justice. We will work with roads policing unit and Derbyshire Fire and Rescue to target the ‘Fatal4’ through education and enforcement. The Fatal4 are speeding, drink and drug driving, driving whilst distracted and non-wearing of seat belts. We will work with Derbyshire Fire and Rescue to educate drivers around the ‘Fatal4’. We will deliver road safety inputs to local children through school visits and engagement events.
