Police officers and drugs dog patrol Nottingham city streets in proactive operation

Police say a proactive operation in Nottingham city centre  to keep people safe led to two arrests and knives being seized.

Two people were arrested after they were found to be carrying a knife in Nottingham city centre.

A number of Operation Guardian officers patrolled the streets of the city, aided by a passive drugs dog, and carried out stop and search activity, as well as engaging with people enjoying a night out.

Operation Guardian is now well established in the city centre and across other parts of Nottinghamshire and is highly successful in tackling drugs and reducing violence which is often associated with drug use and dealing in the night time economy.

Sergeant Adam Pace, who led the operation on 25 February, said: “We continue to take a zero tolerance approach to knife crime.

“As a result of the proactive efforts of the Operation Guardian team, two potentially deadly weapons were taken out if circulation and suspects were brought into custody.

•  Police release images of five men after couple suffer multiple injuries in attack outside a Nottingham McDonald’s

•  Two separate attacks in Nottingham city centre overnight – two in hospital, one seriously injured

“These kinds of weapons have no place on our streets, and we are working every day to clamp down on those who ignore out repeated warnings about the potential consequences of knife crime.”
