Notts resident jailed for threatening council officers

PUBLISHED:

Positive action by Ashfield District Council and Nottinghamshire Police was taken this week, when Joanne Taylor appeared in Court following threats of harm towards a Community Protection Officer and a Anti-Social Behaviour and Nuisance Officer.

The officers reported the offences to Nottinghamshire Police, and Joanne Taylor, 30 and of no fixed address, was arrested and subsequently charged.

At Mansfield Magistrates Court on Monday she was convicted and received a custodial sentence of eight weeks.

Cllr Christian Chapman, Cabinet member for Crime Prevention & Community Safety says “This demonstrates the partnership working that is ongoing between Nottinghamshire Police and the Community Safety team at Ashfield District Council.

“Our Community Protection Officers do an excellent job, albeit in often difficult circumstances. We have increased the team this year to increase their presence across the district.  We will not tolerate our officers being threatened or abused as they go about their jobs. They are out in the district working day in, day out to reduce anti-social behaviour and make our district a nicer, safer place to be. This is yet another example of the Council getting tough on anti-social residents.  The behaviour of those who chose to act this way will be dealt with, and as this case shows, can end in serious consequences.”
