Stop and Search operation recovers Class A and B drugs on six individuals in Arboretum

Nottinghamshire Police continued its commitment to clamping down on criminality as part of a day of action in the Arboretum.

Radford Road’s Operation Reacher and neighbourhood policing teams undertook a series of activities in the area.

Police arrested a suspect for alleged drug driving and recovered class A and B drugs from six people during stop and searches.

Residents were also given the opportunity to share their concerns with their local beat team.

Community protection officers also investigated reports of fly-tipping and confiscated alcohol on five separate occasions where people were breaching a public spaces protection order.

Officers were also joined by as they engaged with people in Bridlington Park.

It comes after Police and Crime Commissioner Caroline Henry secured £432,000 from the Government’s Safer Streets Fund to invest in safety improvements in the Arboretum and Lenton Triangle areas of Nottingham.

The funding is being invested in a raft of security upgrades and additional policing to reduce the fear of crime and prevent households and individuals falling victim to criminals.

The day of action on 16 November was part of the ongoing work to deliver that project.

Inspector Paul Ferguson, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “It was great to see a large number of officers on the beat speaking to residents as part of this day of action.

“We are committed to building positive relationships with the communities in Arboretum so that people feel confident in their police force.
