Mansfield Community Partnership Hub Finally Set For Launch

Over 10 months on from when it was announced the Mansfield Community Partnership Hub that will bring together the working of Nottinghamshire Police and Mansfield Distrct Council will be opened next week.

The hub is designed to provide a ‘joined-up’ apporach to dealing with crime, disorder and safety issues as Police Inspector Nick Butler explains…

Teams from the police and council’s community safety department will be based in the hub, providing a joined-up approach to dealing with crime, disorder and safety issues.

Nottinghamshire Police Inspector Nick Butler says, “None of this is about covering anything up, it is actually about making sure that we work best together. We have talked about it before, if you are a member of the public and you have got a problem, it might be someone that is burning copper wire, playing their music loudly, it might be something that is actually criminal. There is nothing more frustrating than being passed from department to department.”

The move to a shared centre follows a national trend of public sector organisations working more collaboratively and there are other similar successful partnership hubs already in Nottinghamshire. 

Among the benefits of having the teams working together are improved communications and agreeing what is the best way of responding to issues and solving problems. In addition, current ways of working will be reviewed to ensure they are as efficient as possible, making the best use of joint resources.

Chief among its initial aims are to improve links with communities and to adopt a single process for all hub officers to deal with antisocial behaviour and low level crime.
