Community & Crime Prevention

Lamley in the Spring We want you to live in a safe and clean borough and we continually work on improving this. By working close with the county council and local police force we work on a number of different areas including:

We also work on priority areas this is to develop ward based Action Plans through which local people are involved in decisions that affect their quality of life, and individuals and community groups can receive support to achieve their aspirations.

Whilst some incidents are just simply a nuisance some are unlawful and Gedling Borough Council is committed to challenging and reducing such behaviour & the problems of anti-social behaviour.

The Neighbourhood Wardens work closely with both the Police and Police Community Support Officers to patrol the borough, acting as the eyes and ears of the Council in the community.

An information film that provides advice on the steps to take to keep safe in the event of a firearms or weapons attack has been released by National Counter Terrorism Policing.

Recent events around the world remind us all of the terrorist threat we face, which in the UK is considered as ‘SEVERE’, meaning an attack is highly likely. Police and security agencies are working tirelessly to protect the public but it is also important that communities remain vigilant and aware of how to protect themselves if the need arises.

The four minute film, Stay Safe: Firearms and Weapons Attack sets out three key steps for keeping safe. The film is accompanied by an online information leaflet.

The film and leaflet advise that if you are caught up in an incident to ‘run, hide and tell’ - guidance which can be applied to many places and situations.
