Nottinghamshire Police Update

26 May 2017

Update: ACC Stu Prior gives reassurance over events in Nottinghamshire
Over the last 24 hours we’ve received a number of messages from people who are, understandably, concerned about the increased national threat level.

Firstly, we’d like to reassure you that we have robust plans in place for situations like this, which are regularly tested, and we continuously review these, as well as our resourcing and deployment of resources, in line with the national strategy.

In light of the tragic events in Manchester, we have reviewed all planned events, and continue to assess the appropriate policing response to each event and venue. You are likely to see an increased police presence at events over the coming days – this is a response to the increase in threat level nationally.

We work very closely with our partners across the city and county including local authorities, other emergency services, public transport providers, football clubs and other event venues to ensure we are providing the best possible service to the people of Nottinghamshire.

Some people have asked questions about individual venues’ security arrangements and changes to these. While this is the responsibility of the venue, national guidance has been issued and we continue to work closely with them to advise on their own arrangements.

I hope this goes some way to reassure you but if you do have concerns or questions, please just ask our officers.

I know this is an unsettling time and would encourage people to remain vigilant and report anything suspicious to the Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321 – remember, it’s better to have multiple people report the same thing than to assume someone else has already reported it.

We are advising people to be aware of and actively promote the national anti-terrorism campaign called ACT – Action Counters Terrorism – and speak to their families, friends and colleagues about it. Further details can be found at
