Manifesto 2019 – Respect for Nottingham

Nottingham Labour remains committed to reducing crime and anti-social behaviour and encouraging different communities to live together and get on well. Here are some of our achievements since 2015 to help keep people safer:

  • 100 Community Protection Officers working across all wards of the city.
  • Reduced the number of repeat victims of domestic violence down by more than a third.
  • Increased the reporting of hate crime by 89%.
  • Protected Environmental Health Officers from cuts, making sure Nottingham’s restaurants are properly regulated and inspected.
  • Ensured Nottingham City Homes take a tough line on tenants involved in drug dealing, knife and gun crime.

Nottingham Labour wants to work with the Police to achieve our mutual vision of a safer Nottingham and believe now we are far better placed than 4 years ago to do just that. To keep Nottingham people safer, some of the things we will do include:

  • Create a dedicated noise nuisance hotline and respond to complaints of noisy neighbours in 48 hours.
  • Work with at least 500 young people each year at risk of becoming involved in gangs and knife crime or at risk of exploitation.
  • Campaign to increase the number of Police Officers and PCSOs on Nottingham’s streets.
  • Host an extensive programmes of community events and activities to bring people together in every neighbourhood, reflecting and celebrating our diversity.
  • Create a Violence Against Women and Girls Strategy,working with our partners including the Police, transport providers and venues to address the safety of women and girls in their homes and their communities.
