“The last thing they need is to be targeted by burglars. I’d like to reassure our local businesses that the force treats commercial burglary and theft very seriously and will continue to deal robustly with anyone believed to be involved in such crimes and work hard to secure justice for burglary victims.

“The Gedling North Neighbourhood Policing Team and Operation Reacher are continuing to work incredibly hard to target burglary and other local priorities. As part of their productive work patrols have been increased in affected areas to combat these distressing crimes and to deal robustly with suspected perpetrators.”
