Public help set Kimberley policing priorities

POLICING priorities in Kimberley were set at a recent meeting with the help of residents in the town.

Police officers will be focusing on speeding, problem parking around schools, dog fouling, littering, fly tipping and anti-social behaviour.

Pc Paul Toon said speeding was a particular problem on the B600 and the main roads through Kimberley and Nuthall and anti-social behaviour was being reported around shops such as the Spa in Mornington Crescent in Nuthall.

Priority meetings are held every three months for officers and key members of the community to decide on what crime areas need the most attention.

The public has been invited as of the beginning of this year.

The last priorities were vehicle related nuisance, burglary and anti-social behaviour.
