Paul Dickinson (Police, Partnership Coordinator , Nottinghamshire) writes: If you want to influence what issues your local beat team focuses on where you live or work for the next three months, complete our online Neighbourhood Priority Survey.
Together with meetings with residents and community feedback, the results of the surveys are used to help local beat teams set their priorities.
Completed anonymously, the survey asks you to explain what concerns you have about criminal activity where you live. It asks for information about a range of concerns, including antisocial behaviour, speeding, street drinking, nuisance vehicles and other criminal activity.
You can give more information about the offences being committed and the days and times incidents are happening. You can also pinpoint exactly where the problems are, with a marker on a map.
The information you enter into the site will help your local beat team decide which issues are most important to people in your area and what three things they should tackle over the next three months.

If you know someone who hasn’t got access to the internet, but would like to complete a survey, paper-based surveys can be obtained from your local beat team. Call 101 to speak to them or visit www.nottinghamshire.police.uk and click on Your Local Police to find out who your beat team are.
