Cllr Helen-Ann Smith, Lead Executive Member for Community Safety and Crime Reduction, said:

“We are proud to support Anti-Social Behaviour Awareness Week, a national initiative running between 3-7 July 2023. These sessions will give us valuable insight into the problems residents are facing.
It’s important that residents feel they can talk to the teams and that their concerns will be listened to, and acted upon. I want to reassure residents that the Council will take all concerns seriously, so please come and talk to us.”

Antonio Taylor, Community Safety Manager at Ashfield District Council said:

‘'Ashfield is seeing major economic growth and investment and we want to see the District continue to remain an attractive, welcoming place for all our residents and visitors, which is why we are committed to engaging with our communities with matters that are important to them.’’

Jon Hewitt – Ashfield Neighbourhood Policing Inspector of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“As a Neighbourhood Policing Team, we prioritise anti-social behaviour, and we work closely with our partners such as Ashfield District Council to improve feelings of safety across the District.  We urge you to contact us if you wish to report anti-social behaviour by contacting 999 in an emergency or crime in progress or 101 in a non-emergency situation.’’
