Prison Me, No Way

19/04/2013 – Children at Chilwell comprehensive will attend a special ‘Prison Me – No Way’ session next month to help raise awareness amongst young people about the causes, consequences and penalties of crime and the effects of antisocial behaviour.
Recorded Crime in Broxtowe April 2012 - 2013

The sessions, run by prison officers, are just one of a number of initiatives taking place across the borough to advise and educate the community in order to reduce crime.

All year eight pupils at the school will attend the sessions, which have been funded by the South Nottinghamshire Community Safety Partnership, giving them the opportunity to meet serving prisoners to encourage them to think about the consequences of their actions and help keep them out of trouble.

Past events have proved to have a real impact on the children, with comments including:

“I really enjoyed the crime day. The crime van really opened my eyes and made me not want to go in prison and I found it amazing when we found out about those 3 ladies that are in prison. Thank you for an amazing day, I will remember it for many, many years”.

Broxtowe Community Safety Partnership are carrying out a number of initiatives to tackle crime including high-visibility policing, covert operations, CCTV surveillance and project work within the community. Compared to the same period for 2011/2012, recorded crime between April 2012 and March 2013 is down overall by 13.5% according to the latest figures.

To report a crime in progress contact the police on 999 or to report information and suspicious activity contact the non-emergency Nottinghamshire Police number on 101. Alternatively, anyone can report crime anonymously by contacting Crimestoppers.

To protect your property and belongings such as mobile phones, laptops, iPod’s and MP3 players you may want to consider registering the items with the UK’s National Property Register, IMMOBILISE by registering online for free.
