DRIVING down crime and working together were the key themes as a new era in policing was launched for Notts last week.

The Notts Police and Crime Plan 2013 - 2018 was unveiled at Mansfield Town’s One Call Stadium by Paddy Tipping, the county’s Police and Crime Commissioner.

The plan, the first of its kind since Mr Tipping was elected to the newly-created role in November last year, sets out how he plans to cut crime and improve police performance.

The 48-page plan acts as a blueprint, setting out Mr Tipping’s vision, policing priorities and how results will be measured.

It also examines what resources are available, such as finances and personnel, and highlights accountability.

Speaking at the launch, Mr Tipping said: “The plan is about building bridges to create safer communities in Mansfield and across Nottinghamshire. It is about reducing crime and working together to make a real difference.”

Chief Constable of Notts Police, Chris Eyre said: “This plan is the work of a partnership and it is only by working together we can give life to Paddy’s ambitions.”

“I share in those ambitions to be the finest force in the country and for our communities to be able to live safely, in a place that is free from crime.”
