Police UK website
All members of the community are able to access up to date crime figures for their area by accessing the www.Police.uk web site. This site is available by either typing the address into your browser address bar, or by accessing the Web site for Nottinghamshire Police at www.nottinghamshire.police.uk and selecting “Your Local Police” from the selection menu at the top of the screen. You can then click the ‘button’ to the right hand side of the screen prompting you to “Find out information about crime in your area”.
www.Police.uk allows users to search by postcode. The site provides details not only of crime levels by beat area, but can also be used to ‘drill’ down to street level. This can be very useful in the rural areas as it allows a breakdown almost by Parish boundary when looking at the street search.
This has proved to be a very useful tool with positive feedback from those that have taken the time to use it.
The system can also be used to see who your local team of officers allocated to the area are together with photographs. Engagements that are planned by the team are also accessible from the site. This will allow any member of the public who wishes to speak to a member of the team personally, to do so at one of these meetings. The system also identifies any ‘Patchwalks’ that are planned. ‘Patchwalks’ are planned and structured patrols within a community which are advertised on both the Notts Police Web pages and also via the Police.UK site. There are conducted on occasions with partners who wish to be involved and are completed in an effort to allow residents in an area be able to approach the Neighbourhood Policing Team as they patrol that area. This also affords an opportunity for the public to pass on any concerns they may have to local officers.
Further information can be accessed by the public by clicking the ‘Help and Support’ button on the Notts Police Web site. Once done, this button allows members of the public to complete a Safer Neighbourhoods Survey, used to allow members of the public to be involved in the setting of local priorities by completion of this on-line survey.
This Law & Order section of Clarborough & Welham’s Community website provides background and support material from our local police force and also useful links. We include a section, National Policies, providing a view into developments at a national level directly from the Home Office.

Please enrol with your local Neighbourhood Alert - we are unable to post as many alerts here as are available - you may be missing something crucial to your area!
Visit Nottinghamshire Police’s website for a comprehensive overview of current issues/services, etc.
If life is in danger, or a crime is being committed, always dial 999.
For all non-urgent police contacts now use the national number 101
(see advice on this above).
Are official police crime statistics actually correct? If you are aware of a crime, do you report it? If not, then these statistics are surely unreliable. If you are aware of a criminal event - report it!
Your Safer Neighbourhood Team manager is PC Jason Fellows and Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) is Dave Airey. Contact details are given below.
Neighbourhood Alert (successor to Neighbourhood Watch) provides an important ‘layer’ - in fact probably one of the primary layers - of community policing if we use the term in its widest sense. The scheme is always seeking more active members so go to our Neighbourhood Alerts page for more details and also to view some recent Alerts.
You will notice from PCSO Dave Airey’s Reports that crime in our community is very low, a fact that we can often overlook if we spend too much time absorbing the often sensationalised coverage presented by a significant cross section of the media. Dave would be the first to acknowledge that the vigilance of our local community has much to do with this fact, so please do make use of the range of police contact routes highlighted in this section of our website.
Do remember that if it is an emergency or a crime is being committed - always dial 999
If you want to report criminal or suspicious behaviour but remain anonymous
go to Crimestoppers.
