Cross Border liaison with surrounding Force areas Organised Burglaries and thefts in Rural locations Sharing Intelligence and tactics Maximising prevention and detection Serious and Organised Crime Impact Rurally Significant disruption of offending in rural communities Use of Asset Recovery Legislation OPERATION JACOBEAN
Police rural crime clampdown sees offenders jailed for 85 years An operation clamping down on cross-county criminals has netted 85 years in total prison sentences in just a year. A team of Notts Police officers and staff working on Operation Jacobean has seen its work result in nearly 20 criminals being locked up. With support from neighbouring forces the team has been targeting offenders travelling across Notts and the surrounding area to commit burglaries, robberies and thefts. DCI Caroline Racher, who oversaw Operation Jacobean, said: “Initially we began focusing on burglaries in Bassetlaw, Newark and Sherwood, reviewing patterns in the way the break-ins happened, locations and times. “It soon followed that other offences were happening that bordered the area and we liaised with other forces to ensure intelligence was quickly acted upon. “Offenders don’t care about county borders, or who their victims are – they just act to benefit from whatever they can. “Op Jacobean has meant that we have been able to send some of these people to prison for a long time, preventing them from committing offences in several counties. “Those thinking of coming to Nottinghamshire to commit crime should think again. We will be looking to piece together your movements and will use the necessary resources to ensure you can’t simply do what you want whenever you want to, commit crime and expect to be caught and put before the courts.”
NATIONAL INITIATIVES National Rural Crime Conference April 2015 – Bringing a host of Police Forces and organisations from around the country together National Wildlife Unit Regional Wildlife/Countryside approach to be hosted by Nottinghamshire Police April 2015 National Rural Crime Network soon to be launched.

THE FUTURE Delivering an excellent public service and the financial implications…. Over the next comprehensive spending review (CSR) period ( ) we expect a funding shortfall of over £30m (16% reduction in funding)… …….by delivering the new policing model and effective financial management, we will deliver a balanced budget over this period ( ) £193.8m £211.7m (£17.9m) £30.4m £181.3m Expected Cost Increase Funding Gap addressed by the new operating model Today it costs £193.8m to deliver a service If everything stays the same, and adding inflation, the cost to provide the same service would be £211.7m by 2020 However we anticipate funding over the same time period to reduce to £181.3m, Therefore leaving a £30.4m gap. The new policing model will deliver an improved quality of service as well as addressing the funding gap
First point of contact Telephone Investigators can call upon other resources to assist with investigations Response teams focusing on responding to emergencies and high priority calls Contact Resolution Incident Management (CRIM) is a new way of working in the control room. Reduce demand on front line officers and staff by resolving calls at first point of contact Staff fully trained in the use of the National Decision Making Model to effectively resolve calls swiftly More than 30% of all crime will be dealt with by trained investigators over the telephone. Based on the experience of other forces; 80,000 callers will receive a swifter and more effective service. Working with key partners to establish a “Multi Agency Hub”
Investigations We are modernising the way in which we work. We will have a mix of specialist staff and officers in investigation teams such as statement takers, civilian investigators, case builders, telephone liaison officers and office support. These roles will conduct the investigations allowing more officers to be in the community following active lines of enquiry. What matters to a victim of crime is how we treat them as an individual, keep them updated on the progress of an investigation and support them throughout the inquiry and court process.
Visible policing in a one team approach with partners i.e. environmental health, licensing, DVLA, housing, Trading Standards You will see and hear about prevention work in partnership Your area will have a named officer You can visit a police station front counter, a Shared Service front counter or use e- portal You will see more volunteers working with the police in your local area and have the opportunity to get involved yourself Advice and support 24 hours a day by website, e-portal, phone, , local officer, social media Reassurance that highly skilled officers and specialist teams are dealing with serious crime to keep you safe Delivering the future of your local policing
