The crime figures for the beat during February 2012 in various crime categories are shown below. The figures were taken on 18th February 2012.
The number in brackets shows the crimes during the same period in 2011.
The figures incorporate the Wollaton Park estate in addition to Lenton Abbey and University Park.
MALE CHARGED WITH THEFT OFFENCES ON UNIVERSITY PARK
A 43 year old male from Derby was charged on 27/01/2012 with the theft of two pedal cycles from the University of Nottingham on 11/11/2010 and 30/09/2009.
The male was also charged with the offence of going equipped to steal having been found in the possession of some Allen keys when he was arrested on campus on 15/12/2012.
The male had been captured on CCTV stealing both bikes and was then recognised by covert security officers working as he walked around the campus on 15/12/2012.
The male is due to appear at Nottingham magistrates Court on 03/04/2012 and an application will be submitted for an Anti Social Behaviour Order preventing him from entering the University of Nottingham campus.
The NPT are pleased that the three previous applications for ASBO's have all been granted by Nottingham Magistrates Court and have seen the individuals concerned prohibited from entering the grounds of the University of Nottingham for the next two years.
The NPT see the ASBO's as a vital part of the work being undertaken to prevent cycle crime on the University Park campus.
INCONSIDERATE PARKING ON LENTON ABBEY ESTATE
At the recent LAG meeting the problem of inconsiderate parking on the Lenton Abbey estate was discussed with residents and partner agencies.
During the last few months residents have noticed an increase of vehicles parked on the streets of the estate.
Some of the vehicles have, on occasions, been parked inconsiderably making it difficult for vehicles and pedestrians to pass.
With the onset of the City Council Parking Levy, which has already been introduced on the University of Nottingham campus, it is believed that some of the vehicles are possibly students and/or commuters who are parking on the estate before visiting the University or the City Centre.
A meeting is planned for Thursday 23rd February to discuss this issue which will be attended by the local Beat Manager and Councillors as well as representatives from the University and City Council.
If residents wish to report vehicles causing an obstruction they can do so by contacting Nottinghamshire Police at the new 101 telephone number.
If the vehicle is believed to belong to a student University security can also be contacted on 0115 9513013.
