Would Be Burglars Beware

Burglars in Mansfield have been dealt an additional blow as hundreds more residents are being offered new locks, doors, security lighting and camera systems.

Nottinghamshire Police, which already has two dedicated teams of detectives investigating burglary offences, recently appointed a specialist burglary reduction officer to prevent offences from happening in the first place.

  Initially tasked with supporting around 150 previous victims to improve security measures in their homes, the scheme is now being expanded to include immediate neighbours as well. 

PCSO Megan Tuffley started the role in August after the town was awarded government funding after a successful bid by Police and Crime Commissioner Caroline Henry. 

The £432,000 Safer Streets grant is helping to design out crime by working with various partners in Mansfield to improve community safety measures such as the quality and coverage of CCTV, expanding the local automatic number plate recognition camera network, and improving street lighting in the Woodlands and Portland ward areas of the town centre. 

The burglary reduction role is part of that wider funding package and has already seen more than 40 addresses ear-marked for security improvements.
