A report issued by the police and crime commissioner has revealed that 56 per cent of Nottinghamshire residents agree that the police and local councils are dealing with anti-social behaviour and other crime issues.

Paddy Tipping, police and crime commissioner for Nottinghamshire, said: “Reports of anti-social behaviour are going down in Mansfield, and across Nottinghamshire.”

The report was made to the police and crime panel of Nottinghamshire County Council on June 4.

Residents were surveyed in March, and the figure has not changed since July 2017.

But police are still not satisfied and want to do better. The Nottinghmshire force is looking to reduce the figure, as it is below their target of 60 per cent.

Paddy Tipping, Police and Crime Commissioner for Nottinghamshire, said: “Reports of antisocial behaviour are actually going down in Mansfield, and across Nottinghamshire.

“Clearly that is not the perception of the public, however, and we need to listen and respond to that view.”
