Notts Police and Crime Panel February 2017

Almost unanimous support for the increase in the precept.
Continued to explore VFM but the reality is we need uniformed officers still cos however much crime has come down, I can see the pressure on officers and the potential problems in The Meadows.

Chief Constable Craig Guildford attended the panel for the first time in his new role.
In supporting the increase, I spoke again about the dramatic action we took in Nottingham in 2004, and that the Police and the local authority are a strategic partnership to work for community safety – and that partnership was hurt by actions taken over the city police decision – a decision that the new chief constable has an opportunity to review.
Acknowledgement that the Tri-Force proposals have been slow to progress and have not yet delivered any rewards; but progress was being sought.
A surprise that £20m of investment is now planned for changes to Bridewell, whose facilities don’t match Home Office standards.  Some opportunities it seems for revenue savings, but it seems the spend is needed for its own sake.
