Bulwell Week of Action took place from 23rd-28th June and saw CPOs (community protection officers), police civil enforcement and NCH Action for Children, attend several schools across the district.

Crabtree Farm, Snapewood, Springfield and St Mary’s Primary schools were all visited and pupils were told about keeping safe and environmental issues such as littering and dog fouling and the roles they can play in helping to keep their environment clean and tidy.

This was followed up with litter picks around the school grounds with some of the kids which further helped to highlight the issues of littering in the area.

At Bulwell Academy, 126 items were registered on immobilise. These included phones/ipod/ipads in a bid to fight against crime and help return stolen items back to their owners as soon as possible. To register visit:

Four drug warrants were also executed in Bulwell during the week leading to three cannabis warnings and one suspect on police bail.

We will continue to tackle and disrupt drug related activity within the Bulwell area, however some of our success is down to the residents of Bulwell passing us the information we need, so please report any drug activity either to ourselves on 101 or on Crimestoppers in confidence on 0800 555 111.

Other activities during the week included: Enforcement-11 Fixed penalty tickets issued for mobile phone and seat belt offences; four fixed penalty tickets for littering and one for dog fouling.

There was also the opportunity to hand out free crime safety equipment to protect your property and even your pets with 42 dogs chipped and 10 updated,

£1,000 worth of shed alarms given out and 90 bike locks swapped.

Our team also acted to prevent crime by distributing leaflets and holding stalls to raise awareness of domestic violence with 500 “see it report it” leaflets delivered for fly-tipping and dog fouling and two domestic violence one stop shops outside Bulwell Tesco to let people know of the help available to victims.
