Ashfield Police Team Win Local Award

 

The Ashfield Operation Reacher unit, set up to target organised criminals, has received a prestigious local award in recognition of its outstanding community work during the pandemic.

The team unit was one of ten new proactive policing units established across the county in October 2020 – each with a mission to disrupt organised criminality, respond quickly to community concerns and build stronger, more trusting relationships with residents and businesses.

The seven-person team, which has so far made nearly 80 drug seizures, taken more than £100,000 of suspected illicit cash off the streets and arrested nearly 200 suspects, has now been recognised by a local college for positive work its completed in the community during the pandemic – including delivering food parcels for a local foodbank, donating easter eggs to children in hospital, and setting up a thriving weekly football session for local youngsters with Nottingham Forest.

As a result the team has now been announced the winner of a Community Impact Shine award by the Academy Transformation Trust Further Education College in Sutton-in-Ashfield.

Team leader Sergeant Paul Peatfield said: “We really are thrilled to win this this award and would like to say a big thank you to our colleagues at Ashfield District Council who have worked so hard to put us in touch with worthy local causes. In doing so they really have helped us to provide a better policing service to local people.”

Principal Liz Barrett, of the Academy Transformation Trust Further Education College, said: "The Reacher team has a strong, positive and consistent presence within the community of Sutton-In-Ashfield which is very much appreciated by residents.

"The college runs the Let's All Eat food parcel initiative within the Sutton-In-Ashfield community which has provided emergency food relief during the pandemic.

The Reacher team has given time to help support this work including playing a key role in delivering Easter dinners to food parcel recipients. The college really appreciates what team Reacher achieves on a day-to-day basis and the positive community impact that they have.”
