Rushcliffe’s new Neighbourhood Policing Inspector Rob Lawton

Inspector Rob Lawton takes over from Inspector Craig Berry as head of neighbourhood policing in the borough.

Rob’s blog for August 2021:

Hi Everyone, this is my very first blog as the new Neighbourhood Policing Inspector for Rushcliffe. I’m now in my fourth week having had a brilliant first three meeting my team, partners and members of the public as well as some lovely cows, dogs and horses! Everyone has been welcoming and supportive, which I am genuinely grateful for.

As I do further blogs I will keep updating you on the Rushcliffe area but I wanted to use this opportunity to introduce myself to you.

I joined Nottinghamshire Police in 2005 and over my 16 years have had some great experiences in many roles on response, firearms, neighbourhood policing and the Knife Crime Team.

I am genuinely looking forward to my new role as the Neighbourhood Policing Inspector for Rushcliffe, covering West Bridgford, Bingham and Trent, Ruddington, Leake and Keyworth as well as Cotgrave and Wiverton.

I am married and whilst we don’t have children we do have 3 dogs, who are major part of our family.

We have a rescued German Shepherd, an ex-police Springer Spaniel who is 16 years old and a 6 month old Cocker Spaniel cross who we adopted from Radcliffe RSPCA earlier this year when he was a few weeks old.

Operationally we are working closely with our partners at Rushcliffe Borough Council on Operation Botanical.

The operation saw increased patrols on West Bridgford centre to specifically look into Anti-Social Behaviour in the area.

We listened to community reports of ASB in Gamston and are again working closely with partners to resolve this for people in the area.

Both the Operation Reacher and Neighbourhood Policing Teams are receiving additional training over the coming weeks.

Recently they were trained in the use of the ‘Speed Gun’ and have been in the area at some key points raised by yourself in relation to speeding.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and I am looking forward to meeting you and your pets overs the coming weeks.
