“NOTTS Police has missed most of its agreed ‘milestones’ for tackling crime and increasing public satisfaction with its service.
The Constabulary failed to meet Local Authority Agreed (LAA) milestones, drawn up with the city and county councils, in: Reducing overall serious acquisitive crime (which includes burglary, robbery and vehicle crime); House burglaries; Robbery; Most serious violence; Assault with lesser injury.
Notts Police also fell short on its detection milestones for: Serious acquisitive crime; Vehicle crime;Robbery….
The new LAA performance figures, which were revealed at a Notts Police Authority performance committee meeting, also reveal the force’s performance against its seven other Most Similar Forces, set by the Home Office to offer a better performance comparison between constabularies of similar size.
Notts is currently compared to Leicestershire, South Wales, Lancashire, Northumbria, Northants, Staffordshire and South Yorkshire.
The county is ranked eighth, or worst, on numbers of gun crimes, serious acquisitive crime, burglary, robbery, assault with less injury and vehicle crime. It is fifth for most serious violence and combined life-threatening and gun crime offences.
For detecting crime, it is eighth, or worst, on robbery and vehicle crime; seventh on serious acquisitive crime; and sixth on detecting home-burglary offences.”
