6 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.”
