More than 15 officers were in the 7am briefings that day as part of the task force committed to disrupting criminal activity in the Bestwood area.

Operation Reacher first launched in April 2018 with the aim of maintaining the relationship with the people of Bestwood and Top Valley and keeping the communities safe.

The 26-year-old, formerly of Comfrey Close, Bestwood, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply Class A drugs. He appeared at Nottingham Crown Court today (26 October) for sentencing.

An officer from the Op Reacher team, said: “We often carry out warrants as part of our daily business, but a lot of the time they’re only possible because of the information you keep passing on to us.

“We want the same thing as you, to stop criminals benefitting from a life of crime while the good people of Bestwood and Top Valley continue to suffer from the misery that drugs and anti-social behaviour can bring.

“When you see us out and about, patrolling, attending events or stopping to speak to you in the street, it’s not because we’ve been told that’s what we have to do, we are doing it because we are all passionate about getting to the bottom of the issues affecting your families.

“Keep in touch with us, stop us for a chat or send us a message on the local Bestwood Facebook page, so that we, along with our colleagues, can keep on delivering convictions such as this one.”
