Eastwood Column

Posted: Thursday 3rd June 2021
I am honoured to have been elected as Nottinghamshire’s new Police and Crime Commissioner. As someone who was born and raised in Eastwood and has worked in Nottinghamshire most of my life, it matters to me what happens on our streets.

Caroline Henry Image for Eastwood ColumnDuring the election, you told me you want a Commissioner that is on your side. One that effects tangible change, and one that gets things done.

I’m incredibly pleased to see that over the past two months Eastwood has seen significant successes by its neighbourhood policing teams.

Investigations as part of Operation Larkspur have resulted in a number of arrests and the recovery of a number of pedal cycles. Officers have also recovered several cannabis plants and cash following the execution of warrants, with suspects having been identified. 

Listening to your views and experiences is vital to my role, and I will travel the length and the breadth of the county to hear what you have to say. I will be a listening Commissioner.

We will keep working together to stop crime before it happens, cutting the number of people suffering as a victim of crime.  I will not hesitate to push the Government at every opportunity to secure more funding to help make Nottinghamshire safe. My plan is already working.

I am committed to increasing the number of police officers on our streets and to increasing visibility in our communities, especially our market towns and villages which have for too long been forgotten.

We must get tough on crime and put the victim first – and everything I do over the next three years will be with that at the heart of my agenda as your Commissioner.

I am always ready to listen to your priorities. Please don’t hesitate to email me at with your experiences and ideas. Working together, we can make Nottinghamshire safe.
